Journal of Organ Transplantation

Aims and Scope

Journal of Organ Transplantation (JOT) accepts original research articles, scholarly reviews, case reports, and editorials from clinicians, scientists, and transplant professionals from around the world. The journal also encourages articles on ethical considerations related to organ transplantation and organ donation, health communication, and patient education, as well as updates on the latest developments in transplantation clinical research. JOT is open to submissions from all disciplines related to transplantation and organ donation, including immunology, clinical medicine, medical ethics, law, and sociology.


Organ transplantation procedures are classified according to the type of organ being transplanted as well as the technique used. Commonly transplanted organs include the heart, liver, pancreas, kidneys, lungs, and small and large intestines. Today, organs and tissues can be successfully transplanted between individuals of different genetic backgrounds, and xenotransplantation, the transplantation of organs and tissues between different species is becoming a viable option. Research in the area of organ transplantation is rapidly advancing and new techniques and technologies are being developed and improved upon. The JOT publishes articles, case studies, and reviews that bring together the latest research in this field. The journal covers all aspects of organ transplantation including but not limited to the evaluation of donor organs and recipients, tissue engineering, cell therapy, novel surgical techniques and approaches, bioengineering, and immune modification. 


JOT publishes original research as well as review articles, case reports, and other scholarly works in the domains of medical, surgical, and laboratory research related to organ transplantation. The journal encompasses research into organ procurement, immunosuppression, tissue typing, organ preservation, and post-transplant complications, among others. The journal aims to provide a forum for the open exchange of information and to enable collaboration between clinicians, researchers, and policymakers on topics related to the field of organ transplantation. The journal encourages interdisciplinary collaboration and the development of new ideas and perspectives that may advance the field of transplantation science and medicine. The journal seeks to promote the exchange of knowledge and best practices between clinicians and biomedical researchers, as well as to foster collaborations and partnerships between stakeholders and communities across the globe. 


JOT covers a wide range of topics related to organ transplantation, such as regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, clinical practices, immunosuppressive therapies, tissue preservation, transplant rejection, patient safety and quality of life, the economic impact of transplantation, and public awareness and education. JOT publishes articles related to the advancement of organ transplantation research, technology, and the development of novel therapies for managing transplant-related complications, and organ transplantation, including pre-transplantation management, associated medical conditions, and post-transplantation care, as well as procedures related to organ retrieval, preservation, and delivery. 


The journal publishes articles but is not limited to, early stages of organ transplantation in humans, such as immunosuppressant drugs and immunomodulating agents, post-transplantation complications and long-term follow-up, non-transplantation options for improving organ function, and ethical, legal, and administrative aspects of organ transplantation.
