Hematology Journal


The journal HEMATOLOGÍA is the official body of communication of the Argentinean Society of Hematology (SAH). The printed version of HEMATOLOGÍA is distributed free of charge to members of the Argentinean Society of Hematology and to medical and university libraries. The electronic version is completely free of access.

This journal publishes hematology-related works, provided they meet the scientific and technical requirements set by Editorial Board. The journal releases 3 ordinary issues per year plus one or two extraordinary supplements.

After their evaluation, the journal publishes original articles related to scientific research, reviews, pediatrics in hematology, new drugs in hematology, laboratory, clinical cases and images in hematology that have not been published in another magazine or media.

All original works undergo arbitration by two judges, members of the Scientific Advisory Committee, professionals with recognized expertise on the matter that will remain anonymous in a double-blind process of evaluation (the author does not know the identity of the reviewer, nor the reviewer the identity of the author).

Within a month of submission, the judges will issue the work as: approved without modifications, approved with modifications or rejected. This decision is final. In case of disagreement between the judges, a third one will be summoned.

The journal accepts the publication of works from non-Spanish speaking authors in English.

Currently, the sections of the journal HEMATOLOGÍA are:

  1. Original articles
  2. My opinion
  3. Anatomo-clinic discussion of the hematology fellowships
  4. Editorial
  5. Updates and/or revisions
