The Science Series: Special Issue on the Dubai Congress is soon to be published


The ISBT Science Series is an official online-only journal of ISBT affiliated with Vox Sanguinis. Publications include original articles, workshop reports and rapid communications. Furthermore, special issues on ISBT Congresses are released, containing influential research that was presented there. In contrast to Vox Sanguinis, the Science Series include papers containing data that may be of interest to a particular geographical area. Although it is not yet medline-indexed, ISBT is applying for indexing in the near future. This month the Special Issue on the ISBT Congress in Dubai, September 2016 will be published which will be packed with outstanding papers from top speakers on timely subjects including reports on Zika virus from Brazil (Levi) and French Polynesia (Musso), insights in the role of hemopexin (Smith), big data in transfusion medicine (Edgren) and ways to produce platelet lysates (Burnouf). If you are planning to prepare a manuscript that focusses on transfusion medicine within a specific geographical area or designated field we welcome you to submit your paper to the Science Series via ManuscriptCentral.
