Celebrating 31 years of Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation journal

Anniversary issue published with review articles on developments in the field

IOS Press is proud to announce the publication of the 31st anniversary issue of the journal Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation. Opinion leaders in different branches of the field review and give an overview of the most important and recent developments in clinical hemorheology and microcirculation.

The issue (Volume 53, number 1-2) is freely available here.

The journal – then named Clinical Hemorheology - was started in 1980 by its first Editor-in-Chief Alfred L. Copley. The first issue included an important overview of the field by him entitled On the endothelial fibrin lining, fibrinogen clotting extra vivum and in vivo, surface hemorheology and pathological conditions.

As of volume 13, a new subtitle was chosen: An International Journal of Blood Flow, Vessel Wall, Interstitium: Transport and Interaction. The title of the journal was changed in 1996 to include microcirculation as well, in accordance with the trend of the clinical research in the field.
