About this Journal

HPB Surgery offers ready access to important developments in the field of HPB surgery and associated disciplines. We aim to publish fresh experimental and clinical work across the spectrum of HPB disease, while concentrating on those conditions for which ‘surgical’ treatment – not necessarily an actual operation – is a common option. Thus diabetes mellitus and hepatitis, for example, might belong more appropriately elsewhere, though not if the paper should concern pancreatic transplantation or virally-induced hepatoma.

We invite contributions not just from surgeons but from all other specialists who play such a crucial role in the research and clinical aspects of these conditions. We aim to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and knowledge between the different specialists in the field as well as between the developing and the developed worlds.

HPB Surgery currently has an acceptance rate of 27%. The average time between submission and final decision is 75 days and the average time between acceptance and final publication is 38 days.
