The American Journal of Transplantation is a monthly peer-reviewed medical journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons and the American Society of Transplantation. It covers research on all aspects of organ transplantation. Each issue offers continuing medical education in the form of its Images in Transplantation feature, a case-based approach.[1]


The journal was established in 2001 with Philip F. Halloran (University of Alberta) as its first editor-in-chief.[2] In 2011, he was succeeded by Allan D. Kirk (Duke University).[3]

From 2011 to 2015, a shorter, Czech language-version of the journal was published quarterly, each issue containing five articles originally published in the American Journal of Transplantation. The local editor was Ondrej Viklický (Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Prague).[4]


The journal publishes a yearly supplement, the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network and Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients Annual Data Report, which is a collection of data about transplant patients.[5] Another annual supplement is the collected abstracts submitted to the American Transplant Congress.[6][7] A third annual supplement is the ASTS State of the Art Winter Symposium supplement, which is published in January and contains the schedule, abstracts, and other information about the symposium. To date, the journal has published three Infectious Diseases Guidelines supplements (2004, 2009, and 2013).[8]
