Joost Drenth will take over the Editor-in-Chief post for the UEG Journal from Prof. Jan Tack. Jan is stepping down in December 2018 after delivering the last issue 10 of the year and Joost will carry the new Editor-in-Chief’s editorial and choice of contents for the issue 1/2019 onwards. The gradual handover however will already start from September onwards.

UEG Journal has established itself rapidly as a key authoritative, high-quality and trusted journal. With its latest impact factor of 3.477, the UEG Journal has maintained a strong position in the second quartile and now holds a position of 28 out of 80 titles in the Gastroenterology and Hepatology category of the Journal Citation Reports®. 

UEG has great ambitions and Joost was selected by the UEG as the candidate with experience, scientific track record, organisational capabilities and energy to do so. He brings relevant experience as Editor to the table and convinced the search committee to be the best candidate out of other top qualified and suitable colleagues in the field.
