Thrombosis and Haemostasis Journal

Thrombosis and Haemostasis publish original articles with a broad scope in basic research and clinical studies in vascular biology and medicine. Thrombosis and Haemostasis is published monthly in print (ISSN 0340-6245) and online.

Categories include:

  • blood coagulation, fibrinolysis and cellular haemostasis;
  • platelets and blood cells;
  • wound healing and inflammation/infection;
  • endothelium and vascular development;
  • cardiovascular biology and cell signalling;
  • cellular proteolysis and oncology;
  • new technologies, diagnostic tools and drugs.

The journal’s contribution to advancing the field of haematology is the reason why it is read by haematologists, clinical pharmacologists, cardiologists, surgeons, internal specialists and laboratory physicians

Since January 2011, Thrombosis and Haemostasis, the International Journal for Vascular Biology and Medicine, has been approved by ESC as the official house journal of the Working Group on Atherosclerosis and Vascular Biology.
