Focus and Scope

Laboratory Hematology, an official publication of the International Society for Laboratory Hematology published by Carden Jennings Publishing Co., Ltd., is dedicated to the publication of high-quality reports of original research, reviews, editorials, and letters to the editor in all fields of laboratory hematology. Emphasis is placed on manuscripts dealing with both practical and theoretical aspects of clinical laboratory hematology, including routine and special hematology, coagulation, transfusion medicine, immunology, melcular biology, marrow and cell transplantation, instrumentation, and urinalysis.

Manuscripts dealing with basic or nonclinical issues are considered if they are relevant to new or emerging areas that are likely to affect laboratory hematology. The journal also publishes reviews, consensus documents, and reference procedures that have impact on the practice of laboratory hematology, as well as abstracts of papers presented at the annual meeting of the International Society for Laboratory Hematology.

Laboratory Hematology endeavors to offer rapid reviews of submitted manuscripts, with publication decisions made promptly. Accepted papers are published with minimal delay.

Peer Review Process

New manuscripts are reviewed by the Editorial Board for originality, content, relevancy, and adherence to outcomes protocols. Laboratory Hematology features an efficient submission and peer review process with an anticipated completion time of 30 to 60 business days from the date of receipt of the original manuscript. Any questions or comments generated during peer review will be forwarded to authors by e-mail. A prompt response to these questions is necessary to ensure timely publication. When revisions to the manuscript are requested by the Editorial Board, the authors must make the necessary changes prior to publication. Those changes will be reviewed by the Editorial Board to determine if the authors have sufficiently addressed their concerns. Manuscripts deemed to be inadequately revised will be rejected. The Editor has the final say as to publication.
