New Editor-in-Chief for Frontline Gastroenterology journal

Professor Beattie: "I am very excited to take on this role."

The journal publishes articles about innovative and best practice in the fields of gastroenterology and hepatology and it is co-owned with the British Society of Gastroenterology.

Based in Southampton, Professor Beattie is a Consultant Paediatric Gastroenterologist at Southampton Children’s Hospital and leads the Wessex Regional Paediatric Gastroenterology Service. He has an extensive track record of research into paediatric inflammatory bowel disease over the last 20 years.

He has authored multiple publications on the management of Crohn’s disease and other gastrointestinal conditions. Professor Beattie was the Editor-in-Chief of Archives of Disease in Childhood from 2012–17 and is the co-author of the Oxford Handbook of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. He was President of the British Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, 2010–13.

Professor Beattie says: "I am very excited to take on this role and look forward to working with the readers, researchers, authors, editors and the BSG and BMJ to deliver this top quality journal with the mission to help clinicians in their practice by publishing the best of innovative practice, clinical research, evidence based guidance and clinical reviews. I would like to acknowledge the substantial contribution of the outgoing Editor-in-Chief, Dr Anton Emmanuel, who has served for 7 years and built up the journal into an essential resource for all gastroenterology professionals."

Professor Beattie will take up his new post in September 2018. Responding to the appointment, Richard Gardner, Chief Executive of the British Society of Gastroenterology, said: “The BSG is delighted to have appointed Professor Mark Beattie as the Editor of Frontline Gastroenterology. This is a crucial appointment for the BSG’s members to ensure our they are kept informed about the latest innovations in practice and research. There remains huge scope for continuing to develop the journal and Mark has the experience and strive to deliver this. We would also like to note the instrumental role of Dr Anton Emmanuel in taking the journal to an excellent position during his tenure.”

Allison Lang, Publishing Director at BMJ, says: “Professor Beattie is a well respected expert and champion for gastroenterology, who shares our passion on supporting healthcare professionals in improving patient outcomes. We look forward to working with Mark to bring rich and stimulating content to the journal.”
