IBD Journal

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases® (IBD Journal) is the first journal dedicated exclusively to IBD and is a benefit of your Professional Membership in the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) (at certain membership levels).

The Journal covers topics of interest to the professional clinician or researcher in this burgeoning field. Each monthly issue features original, peer-reviewed articles in clinical and basic science areas, as well as invited in-depth reviews of key treatment issues and groundbreaking research. We invite all expert authors to submit an article for consideration.

The IBD Journal highlights the unique and important issues in pediatric IBD, as well as articles pertaining to adult patients. Also included are critical examinations of the design and results of recent clinical trials; elucidative discussions of controversial diagnostic and management issues and techniques; and summaries of significant articles from around the world with relevant commentary by experts in the field.

The Journal is accessible to subscribers at IBDJournal.org. Access to the IBD Journal requires an easy registration process. If you require assistance, please contact Customer Service for the Journal. The IBD Journal is also now available as an iPad app.
