JCI Insight Editor’s update: January 2018
I am pleased to update you on recent JCI Insight activity. Together, our outstanding Editorial Board and distinguished team of Consulting Editors have helped JCI Insight publish excellent science across all areas of biomedicine, quickly and efficiently.
As authors, ASCI members have been a driving force behind the success of the journal since its launch in January 2016 (see below for a list of recent research articles with members as corresponding authors). I encourage you to consider submitting your research to JCI Insight. A reminder: ASCI members who are the corresponding author of a first-round submission to JCI Insight may designate up to three submissions per calendar year to be guaranteed for external peer review. For further details, visit the For Authors page.
To mark its second year of publication, JCI Insight began publishing reviews in 2017. These reviews, many of which are authored by recently elected ASCI members, cover topics in oncology, hepatology, transplantation, and other areas; they are listed at the end of this message.
By the end of last year, the journal published nearly 640 articles across the following categories.
- Research: 551 articles (view recent)
- Clinical Medicine: 62 articles (view recent)
- Technical Advance: 25 articles (view recent)
It is gratifying to note that JCI Insight articles are being recognized in their respective fields; a sample of those that have been widely cited appears below. The volume of papers directly submitted to JCI Insight for consideration has been steadily increasing, another sign of the recognition the journal is receiving.
In addition to evaluating submissions previously considered at the JCI, JCI Insight also considers papers submitted with reviews from other top-tier journals, which we feel is important in reducing the overall burden on authors and reviewers. Read more about the process here.
As always, I look forward to seeing your research and welcome your feedback.

Editor, JCI Insight
