Welcome to the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Pathophysiology

The World Journal of Gastrointestinal Pathophysiology (WJGP) is a leading academic journal devoted to reporting the latest, cutting-edge research progress and findings of basic research and clinical practice in the field of gastrointestinal pathophysiology.  It was launched on April 15, 2010 and is published trimonthly (4 issues annually) by BPG, the world's leading professional clinical medical journal publishing company.

We encourage gastrointestinal pathophysiologists worldwide to submit manuscripts to the WJGP describing their original basic or clinical research findings that are of high academic value and which report new diagnostic techniques or summarize their treatment experiences.
