  • Impact Factor of the Journal in 2022 = 500/100 = 10

BLOOD Publication Fee

Authors may choose to pay a fee to make their article immediately and freely available upon publication under a Creative Commons license. The fee for publication under a CC BY-NC-ND license is $5,000. This license allows noncommercial, nonderivative use of the article and requires appropriate credit to the authors. Authors whose institutions or funders require publication under a CC BY license may request a CC BY license, for which the fee will be $6,000.

Authors can also publish under the subscription model with no fee required, and their article will be available to subscribers, ASH members, readers in developing countries, and patient groups. Your publication choice will have no effect on the peer review process or acceptance of your submission.

BLOOD Reference Style

Include references in numerical order at the end of the article according to the order of citation in the manuscript text. Text citations of reference should consist of superscript numbers. Format references per the instructions of the Blood Style Guide. If you use citation software, check it carefully to ensure that it formats your references according to the current Blood style.

Authors can now have Medline links in their HTML references for citations that have only been published via prepublication in Blood First Edition or in other prepublished articles. Since prepublished articles have PubMed records and a PubMed ID (PMID) is listed at the bottom of every PubMed record as the citation identifier, an author can include the PMID within his or her manuscript references to link the prepublication citation to its PubMed record. Citation of a paper prepublished in First Edition must also include its DOI number, as shown in the prepublished article.
