The first issue of World Journal of Gastrointestinal Pharmacology and Therapeutics (WJGPT), whose preparatory work was initiated on September 27, 2008, will be published on February 6, 2010. The WJGPT Editorial Board has now been established and consists of 188 distinguished experts from 36 countries. Our purpose of launching WJGPT 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.
