​Information for Authors

HemaSphere is an open access journal, powered by the European Hematology Association (EHA), and dedicated to supporting hematology patient care, research, and education worldwide.

HemaSphere publishes results of highly relevant basic, translational, and clinical research in hematology. We are especially looking for strong studies reporting novel findings that are of high impact to the field of hematology. Review articles and guideline articles provide clear overviews of new developments and recommendations for patient care.

HemaSphere is the premier hematology information resource, which is covered by the HemaTopics and HemaPolicy sections in the journal. These sections present insightful discussions on all aspects related to hematology, including summaries of important articles, reports of new therapies, discussions on European policy, and other hematology news items.

Manuscript preparation

Please read our current instructions and guidelines ​for preparing and submitting articles.

The instructions PDF, downloadable from the link above, also includes word count and figure limits; however, we are flexible with these aspects so please contact us if you have questions. No special formatting is required at first submission; what is most important is that the science is clearly presented and figures/tables are also clear.

If your manuscript was reviewed at another journal and rejected there, you can submit your (revised) manuscript to us. In that case, please also send us the reviewer comments and your answers how you have revised the manuscript (and what you were not able to change). We will take this into account during the review process.
