Oxford University Press and the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology (CAG) are pleased to announce their new partnership to publish the Journal of the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology (JCAG), CAG's official journal.

The Canadian Association of Gastroenterology was founded in 1962 to support and engage in the study of the organs of the digestive tract in health and disease, promote the science and art of gastroenterology, and to promote and maintain the highest ethical standards.

Over 1100 members, including gastroenterologists, surgeons, pediatricians, basic scientists and nurses comprise the association. The CAG provides professional gastroenterological education and funding opportunities for gastrointestinal health and disease research, and more recently, has advocated for improved timeliness and quality of digestive health care for Canadians.

JCAG publishes original clinical and translational research papers, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, state-of-the-art review articles from international experts, clinical guidelines, images and editorials focusing on the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of gastrointestinal and liver disorders. Editor-in-chief Dr. John Marshall, M.D. states "JCAG is committed to improving the care of adults and children, in Canada and throughout the world."
