European Journal of Human Genetics – How to Get Published Session

Thank you to everyone who attended our recent 'How to Get Published' session at ESHG in Barcelona.
For those who didn't make it, please see our write-up and editor-in-chief presentation which we hope will help with the whole process of publishing.


European Journal of Human Genetics is pleased to announce that authors can now include Video Presentations as part of their submissions. Video Material allows authors to go beyond the usual constraints of the written word, whilst not only increasing the visibility of their research but also enhancing the user experience of the journal's international readership. This is an exciting and unique way to display the findings of your paper and succinctly and creatively convey the take home message to readers. Please see EJHG-Tube for our first Video Presentations and also refer to the journal's Guide to Authors for details on how to do this yourself.
