The first issue of World Journal of Gastrointestinal Pathophysiology (WJGP), whose preparatory work was initiated in June, 2009, is published on April 15, 2010. The WJGP Editorial Board has now been established and consists of 154 distinguished experts from 27 countries. Our purpose of launching WJGP is to publish peer-reviewed, high-quality articles via an open-access online publishing model, thereby acting as a platform for communication between peers and the wider public, and maximizing the benefits to editorial board members, authors and readers.
