WELCOME to 2019!

We are pleased to embrace the New Year with our traditional January Editorial and Editors' Choice.[1]

First, we would like to express our deepest thanks to all of you, our faithful readers and authors who have kept Thrombosis and Haemostasis (T&H) strong and healthy through the years.

In 2018, we received around 900 submissions from you again, a steady number which reflects the trust you place in our Journal. Portraying this, our impact factor has followed a stable trend since it reached 5 in 2011 similarly to our CiteScore which remains around 4.

We continue to serve as a link journal for the European Society of Cardiology Working Groups on Thrombosis and on Atherosclerosis & Vascular Biology, as well as being the official journal of the Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis Research (GTH), the Spanish (SETH) Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis and the Australian Vascular Biology Society (AVBS).

What's New?

New Publisher, New Look

With this issue, we proudly introduce a new cover design reflecting our successful move to the Thieme Publisher group. We are happy that T&H now visually matches the very distinct look from Thieme, a very strong brand which is known worldwide for high-quality medical publishing. The new layout features a prominent place for each month's cover image as well as Highlights focusing on the essential, to better engage the reader.


#

From the Latest to the Oldest

We are delighted to announce the full retro-digitalization of T&H this year, available on our new online archive system on www.thieme-connect.com. Not only can you follow our latest publications on the T&H website, but you are now also able to browse through all issues dating back to 1957, representing your past 61 years of hard work and findings!

Aside from the publisher's website, you are cordially invited to follow us on our social media pages, which we regularly update with news, links and short interviews from authors whose findings particularly stroke our interest.

TH Open

We are pleased to announce that our new ‘baby’, the open access companion journal TH Open is growing well, with more than 70 manuscripts published since its launch in 2017 and PubMed visibility. Its unique ‘Pay What You Want’ policy allows authors to decide how much worth they place into the publication process and give a chance to those who are deterred by high publishing prices to submit Open Access.

As an additional remark pro domo, we have to say goodbye to Irina Moshkova, who handled the editorial office for almost 10 years and has now parted for new shores. We would like express our heartfelt gratitude to Irina for the excellent work and service to the journal over the years and at the same time welcome Dr. Anne Rigby, who joined the team this year and will supervise the editorial office and all its needs with all commitment.

Finally, along with the entire editorial staff including Dr. Elinor Switzer (Stuttgart), Dr. Anne Rigby (Munich) and Thieme Publisher (Stuttgart), we would again like to thank you, our authors and readers, for your support and trust as well as you, our section editors and reviewers, for your dedicated time and critical eye. It is with you that T&H can continue to be the reference to clinicians and scientists it is today.

May the coming year bring you every success and happiness!
