Welcome to the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

The World Journal of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (WJGE) 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 endoscopy.  It was launched on October 15, 2009 and is published monthly (12 issues annually) by BPG, the world's leading professional clinical medical journal publishing company.

We encourage gastrointestinal endoscopists worldwide to submit manuscripts to the WJGE 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.
