JGS journalofgastricsurgery aims are to establish a worldwide open access forum for discussing and sharing scientific theories, methods and experiments. The increasing amounts of data collected throughout the globe these days has ambiguous qualities. On the one hand, we witness a state of abundance of information and technological improvements, but on the other hand, all the scientific fields are so specified in their own area, that they could hardly understand and exploit each other’s achievements. We believe that the future of our planet depends on our mutual efforts and interdisciplinary co-operation. Therefore, we welcome submissions on wide range of JGS topics.
