The Journal of the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology is becoming well established, now approaching it’s first year anniversary. By the end of 2018, four print issues will have been published as well as a large number of open-access on-line papers. Thank you to the CAG membership for your support of, and submissions to, the JCAG.

One of the primary objectives of the CAG, in launching the JCAG, is to provide a venue for Canadian trainees to publish. The CAG is launching this initiative to in support of CAG Trainee members.

  • The CAG will subsidise the author publication fee for the first ten (10) submissions which are accepted for publication and for which the primary submitting author is a Trainee member of the CAG. When submitting your manuscript please ensure that your cover letter refers to the CAG Trainee Member Subsidy.
  • The discounted JCAG author publication fee of 1,000 USD, for CAG Trainee members, will be subsidised by 750 USD such that CAG Trainee authors only pay 250 USD.

The JCAG is published in collaboration with Oxford University Press, is an open-access journal, published largely on-line, and will have periodic print issues throughout the year. Dr. John Marshall (McMaster University) is the JCAG Editor-in-Chief.
