The American Journal of Transplantation is the joint journal of the American Society of Transplantation (AST) and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS). The aim of the AJT is the rapid publication of new high quality data in organ and tissue transplantation and the related sciences.
The journal reflects the field and is an agent for advancing it through critical reviews and news features, consensus documents and guidelines. The journal is directed at scientists and clinicians in transplantation, but also at those in other fields who wish to follow transplantation.
