    Contributing to iGIE

    iGIE will feature endoscopic research articles, especially those that focus on technologic or procedural innovation, early investigational and translational work, digital health and articles that adopt an interdisciplinary approach. With the strong international reputation of GIE behind it, publication in iGIE will help your work garner the attention and recognition it merits.

    Initial publications will be quarterly with the number of issues increasing over time. Shortly after articles are accepted, they will be posted to the "Articles in Press" page of the journal’s website and will ultimately be indexed in PubMed Central. Additionally, any federally funded research will be deposited into PubMed Central, which satisfies the National Institutes of Health access policy. The journal’s website will also support multimedia files and supplemental data including images, video and audio files.
