​​​​​​Transplantation® Direct is indexed on DOAJ and PubMed Central

In conjunction with the Editor-in-Chief, Jeremy R. Chapman, AC, MD, FRCP, FRACP, and the Executive Editor, Edward K. Geissler, PhD, The Transplantation Society and Wolters Kluwer are delighted to announce that Transplantation Direct is indexed by The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and PubMed Central®​ (PMC).

DOAJ is a community-curated list of open access journals and aims to be the starting point for all information searches for quality, peer reviewed open access material. To assist libraries and indexers keep their lists up-to-date, they make public a list of journals that have been accepted into or removed from DOAJ. The aim of the DOAJ is to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals, thereby promoting their increased usage and impact. The DOAJ aims to be comprehensive and cover all open access scientific and scholarly journals that use a quality control system to guarantee the content. In short, the DOAJ aims to be the one-stop shop for users of open access journals.​​

All published papers dating back to Volume 1 Issue 1 have been retrospectively indexed on PMC to allow all Transplantation Direct content to be available and fully searchable on PMC's online platform.

We would like to thank all authors who have submitted their work to the journal and have contributed to its success.
