The International Journal of Transgender Health (IJTH) is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal covering research on gender dysphoria and gender incongruence, the medical treatment of transgender individuals, social and legal acceptance of gender affirming surgery, and professional and public education on transgender health. It also publishes WPATH's Standards of Care, guest editorials, policy statements, letters to the editor, and review articles. The journal aims to inform a broad audience including policy makers, practitioners, and the general public.[1]

It is the official journal of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health.[2] The editor-in-chief is Walter Pierre Bouman (National Centre for Transgender Health and the University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK).[3] The journal is published by Taylor & Francis.

Abstracting and indexing[edit]

The journal is abstracted and indexed in CINAHL, SocINDEX, EBSCO databases, Scopus, International Bibliography of the Social Sciences, PASCAL, and PsycINFO.


The journal was established in 1997 as the International Journal of Transgenderism (IJT), obtaining its current title in 2020 to reflect more appropriate and acceptable language as the former name is used as a slur nowadays,[4][1][5] with Friedemann Pfäfflin and Eli Coleman as founding editors-in-chief.
