Journal of Peritoneum (and other serosal surfaces)

The Journal of Peritoneum (and other serosal surfaces) (JoPER) is a quarterly open access, peer-reviewed online journal that covers all aspects of clinical and basic research related to either healthy, either diseased peritoneum (and other serosal surfaces, like pericardium and pleura) and its allied subjects. Peritoneum is a word derived from Greek (peritonaion) via Latin (peritonaeum), that results from the merging of peri- "around" (lat. peri-) + teinein "to stretch" (lat. tenet), meaning thus “stretched around” or “stretched over”. Although peritoneum is present in some invertebrates, such as annelids, typically is the serous membrane that forms the internal covering of the abdominal cavity or coelom in amniotes, wrapping most of the intra-abdominal (or coelomic) organs. Although the peritoneum is composed only of a layer of mesothelium supported by a thin stratum of connective tissue, it is involved in many intrabdominal disorders and is an important way of treatment (like, for example, intraperitoneal chemotherapy and peritoneal dialysis). Thus peritoneum spans a wide range of disciplines and interests, including either surgical and medical specialties, but even anatomy, embryology, histology, physiology and basic sciences. The same can be told for other serosal surfaces of human body, like pericardium and pleura. As such JoPER aims to provide a platform for surgeons and physicians to publish their researches and rapidly exchange ideas and findings with the common topic of the peritoneum (and the other serosal surfaces). Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: oncology, inflammatory diseases and adhesions, septic diseases, gynecological diseases and endometriosis. The online presence of JoPER, as well as it's open access policy ensures that the articles published in the journal are highly visible and reach a wide audience, whilst immediate publication on acceptance ensures all findings are disseminated as quickly as possible.
