Our manuscript to Hepatology regarding HBV just got accepted. I am an undergrad and am wondering how reputable Hepatology is. The physician I work with says its the premier liver journal and should carry me through residency. How far will this realistically "carry" me (im third author)? I am working on a second manuscript hopefully for sumission in a few months on post OLT quality of life(4th author). Are these publications only useful if I go into GI? I will be applying to medical school in the next few months.
