Basic Information

The Revista Colombiana de Gastroenterología was created in July 1985 and is published by the Asociación Colombiana de Gastroenterología with the collaboration of the Asociación Colombiana de Endoscopia Digestiva, la Asociación Colombiana de Coloproctología y la Asociación Colombiana de Hepatología. It is published quarterly in the months of March, June, September and December and is covered by Resolution 001940 of June 4, 1987 issued by the Ministry of Government. It publishes original unpublished articles on medical topics, particularly articles on basic and clinical research, review articles and documents about or related to the medical specialties of the publishers. Articles are published only after approval of the Editorial Committee. All manuscripts submitted to the journal are subject to a peer review process conducted by experts in each field and its methodology. This process is anonymous: the only people who know the identities of both the author and the reviewers are the editors of the magazine.

All works submitted to the review must be previously unpublished. Papers that have been previously published will not be accepted. Authors should not submit papers that partially or substantially reproduce texts that have been previously published, even if they were in other languages. The review process uses plagiarism detection tools. Total or partial reproduction of any article previously published elsewhere must have the approval of the Editor and credit to the original publication must be given in the Review. The Review is aimed at professionals, specialists and students related to the specialties mentioned above. It is edited and printed in the city of Bogotá, D.E., Colombia.

The abbreviation for citing the Revista Colombiana de Gastroenterología is Rev. Colomb. Gastroenterol.
