Transplantation has been the official ILTS journal since 2015, and is available free to all ILTS members. It has been a trusted source for extensive and timely coverage of the most important advances in transplantation for nearly 50 years, and is now much enhanced by ILTS-sponsored editorial and scientific contributions.  It hosts all official ILTS guidelines and consensus statements, and has ILTS-badged sections on liver clinical and liver basic science.

Note about OVID journal access: Members please note that access to the OVID platform is no longer available because of potential contractual issues encountered by Wiley, publisher of the platform journals. ILTS entered into the agreement with OVID in good faith, and regrets any misunderstanding between Wiley and its client specialist societies, whom we believed had consented to this initiative on the basis of appropriate remuneration. We apologise to ILTS members who planned to use the platform, and wish to confirm that access to Transplantation is not affected. A full refund of ILTS expenditure on OVID has been received, which will be used to support other member benefits.
