  • 8. Peer Review

    All papers submitted to Gut and Liver are reviewed by the editorial team before being sent out for an external peer review to rule out papers that have low priority, insufficient originality, scientific flaws, or the absence of a message of importance to the readers of the Journal. A decision about these papers will usually be made within two or three weeks.
    The remaining articles are usually sent to two reviewers. It would be very helpful if you could suggest a selection of reviewers and include their contact details. We may not always use the reviewers you recommend, but suggesting reviewers will make our reviewer database much richer; in the end, everyone will benefit. We reserve the right to return manuscripts in which no reviewers are suggested.

    The final responsibility for the decision to accept or reject lies with the editors. In many cases, papers may be rejected despite favorable reviews because of editorial policy or a lack of space. The editor retains the right to determine publication priorities, the style of the paper, and to request, if necessary, that the material submitted be shortened for publication.

Abstract

Antiviral treatment of hepatitis B is one of the most rapidly evolving fields in current medicine. Guidelines for the management of chronic hepatitis B (CH-B) have been proposed and revised by many academic societies and groups. Recommendations for nucleoside or nucleotide analogue (NUC) therapy from representative current guidelines are compared herein with each other and with previous guidelines. Several differences among individual recommendations may reflect regional and temporal differences as well as differences in the available data upon which the guidelines are based. Nevertheless, these guidelines share a common principle regarding NUC treatment for CH-B: long-term viral suppression by the drugs with potent antiviral activity and low rate of development of drug resistance to prevent disease progression. A review of the past and current guidelines for the management of CH-B would be useful for evaluating the current status of management of the disease and to identify better solutions for improving the outcome of patients with CH-B.
