The Journal of Haemophilia Practice is an international, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that aims to provide a forum for all members of the multidisciplinary bleeding disorders care team.

It is now widely recognised that the care and management of people with haemophilia and other rare bleeding disorders should always be based on a multidisciplinary approach, with value placed on the specific expertise brought by allied health care professionals, including nurses, physiotherapists, data managers, social workers, and psychologists. We believe that sharing experience on evidence-based care, and understanding the lived experience of rare bleeding disorders, helps to promote expertise and benefits patients.

Any manuscript that is relevant to current bleeding disorders care and practice will be considered for review and publication. To this end, we positively welcome:

  • Original research 
  • Case reports 
  • Case series 
  • Methodology papers
  • Reviews in any field of bleeding disorders of relevance to current clinical practice
  • Clinical Updates that describe current advances in any clinical field related to bleeding disorders
  • Editorials that address a particular topic of current interest.
  • Outcomes research written by and/or with individuals affected by bleeding disorders

Please note that case reports should meet the standards outlined in the CARE Case Report Guidelines. Authors submitting case reports are advised to consult the CARE Checklist.

Manuscripts should be submitted to The Journal of Haemophilia Practice via ScholarOne (see Submit). All manuscripts will first be subject to a technical review, including a quality check of all files submitted and including a plagiarism check. Manuscripts will then be reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief, who will decide whether or not to proceed to peer review. The journal operates a double-blind peer review process. The review procedure will result in one of four decisions:

  • Immediate accept
  • Minor revision
  • Major revision
  • Reject

The editorial decision will be communicated to the authors as soon as the review process has been finalised. In case of revisions, the revised article may be sent back to review before a decision is made on acceptance.

The estimated time from manuscript submission to first decision is 4 to 6 weeks and from the final revision to acceptance is approximately 2 weeks. The authors will receive a proof of their article in order to confirm the accuracy of the text prior to publication.
