The Journal of Hepatology welcomes thought-provoking opinions from accomplished leaders in the field, expressed in an academic spirit, in an attempt to promote debate or to change the perspective on unsettled clinical or experimental research topics.

Introduced in 2020, "Expert Opinion" articles provide an editorialized analysis of a narrow issue by one or more thought leaders in the field. The analysis promotes the author’s vision, data interpretation or personal recommendation on the topic in question, highlighting as appropriate its importance, future potential, or common misconceptions. The objective is not to present a consensual view but rather a personal interpretation backed by solid experience and sound judgment.

We hope that these articles will stimulate a healthy discussion and reveal new research avenues. We invite you to read the papers published so far in this series, which are freely accessible:
