GastroHep.com was connected to the Internet in Oxford, England at 13:00h on Tuesday 25 July 2000.

It provides a global on-line resource for all aspects of gastroenterology, hepatology and endoscopy.

Jon Conibear, Managing Director of Blackwell Science, welcomed the new site, "GastroHep.com combines our tradition of publishing excellence with all the potential offered by the Internet. The world's leading authorities will deliver information needed by gastroenterologists, at the touch of a button."

The website was conceived at a meeting in Oxford on 6th August 1999. Roy Pounder, Pete Peterson and Guido Tytgat met with Andrew Robinson and Jon Conibear of Blackwell Science. Together they made outline plans for the new website.

GastroHep.com facts:
  • Conceived 6th August 1999
  • Approved February 2000
  • Research March 2000
  • Design & programming April 2000
  • Launch 25th July 2000

GastroHep.com was named a day later and the first design for the site was prepared within a month by Tom Pounder - a student of Fine Art at Oxford University. This secret site attracted the attention of search engines, but it also impressed the Board of Blackwell Science, who approved full funding for the site in February 2000.

Peter Cotton joined the venture in the spring to lead in endoscopy, and Eugene Schiff agreed to head hepatology soon after. The Editorial Boards and the Global Academic Faculty were recruited during the early summer.

Jo Puleston joined Roy Pounder in London as a medical fellow in March 2000, performing much of the detailed early research for the site. More recently Russell Walmsley and William Maimaris have joined the project. Doris Edwards and Louise Kozloski provide secretarial support in London.

The creation of the website started in Oxford on 25th April 2000 led by Blackwell Science's publishing director Andrew Robinson. All the design and programming is performed by Kevin Smith, Rob Dyer and Paul Wakelin. Editorial support comes from Rachel Robson, Fiona Pattison and Shaun Embury. Beverly King is the secretary in Oxford. Philip Saugman leads the marketing of GastroHep.com with Clare Davis, Ursula Culligan and Amy Bennett.

GastroHep.com is a part of Blackwell Science, not sponsored.

"We have been working flat-out on GastroHep.com for the last four months" explained Roy Pounder, "I'm sure you'll be amazed by the site. And it will get better and better!"

GastroHep.com is a part of Blackwell Science, the international medical and scientific publisher. The site is independent of the pharmaceutical industry, although it will take advertisements. The website will be free for users until December 2000, when a subscription will be required to benefit from its increasing resources.

You'll be amazed by GastroHep.com.
Roy Pounder

"GastroHep.com will eventually revolve around its four eBooks - Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and two in Endoscopy", explained Roy Pounder. "All its content is coded and will inter-relate to topics within the electronic books. But this is more dynamic than paper books - we will continuously build-up, improve and above all relate everything to the latest literature."

Andrew Robinson enthused, "I hope that gastroenterologists and hepatologists will look at this site and think, 'Wow, this is what I've been waiting for'. We're aiming to create order out of the chaos on the Internet. This site should save people time and frustration."

What is the best part of the website? "Look at the selected abstracts and coverage of the journals", replied Roy Pounder. Jo Puleston recommends the Conference Calendar, "There's no better collection of facts about GI meetings".

An incredible platform for future endoscopic developments
Peter Cotton

Peter Cotton is also very enthusiastic about the new site, "The experience and resources of Blackwell Science, and the star-studded team which has been assembled, has every chance of becoming one of the premier resources in gastroenterology, hepatology and endoscopy." He continued, "The integration of Internet publishing, computers and endoscopy provides an incredible platform for future endoscopic developments, teaching and collaboration."

GastroHep.com is now ready for the real test - colleagues around the world using the site to help their work.
