Bottom Line: In case of Journal of Neurogastroenterology and Motility which is published quarterly, this search was performed for 5 years (2010-2014).This difference between the East and the West is not just due to the journal itself, but it also depends on the author's affiliation and their ability to perform high quality research in the area of the NM.These data provide evidence for the research trend and give valuable information to the researchers for determining subjects for the study and for selecting proper journals for publishing their studies.

ABSTRACT
There is a paucity of studies that compare the differences in published articles submitted from the East and the West in the area of neurogastroenterology and motility (NM). To compare the article topics from the East and the West which have been published, 5 Western (Gastroenterology, Gut, American Journal of Gastroenterology, American Journal of Physiology-Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology, and Neurogastroenterology and Motility) and 3 Eastern gastrointestinal journals (Journal of Gastroenterology, Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, and Journal of Neurogastroenterology and Motility) were selected based on the impact factor. Published papers were classified into 12 categories and 60 subcategories. The titles and abstracts of review articles, original articles, and meta-analyses from these journals were reviewed for the last 2 years (2013-2014). In case of Journal of Neurogastroenterology and Motility which is published quarterly, this search was performed for 5 years (2010-2014). Of the total 2656 reviewed articles, 842 (260 from the East and 582 from the West) were classified into the category of NM. The most frequently published papers from the Western researchers were categorized as brain-gut interaction, visceral hypersensitivity, and irritable bowel syndrome, whereas those from the Eastern researchers were categorized as gastroesophageal reflux disease, functional dyspepsia, and irritable bowel syndrome. This difference between the East and the West is not just due to the journal itself, but it also depends on the author's affiliation and their ability to perform high quality research in the area of the NM. These data provide evidence for the research trend and give valuable information to the researchers for determining subjects for the study and for selecting proper journals for publishing their studies.

Proportion of Eastern and Western articles on neurogastroenterolog and motility in Eastern and Western gastrointestinal journals. Proportion of Eastern articles in JGH, JNM, and JGE is 81.1%, 68.2%, and 61.1%, respectively; however, proportion of Eastern articles in NGM, AJG, AJP-GI, GE, and GUT is 12.7%, 11.1%, 9.9%, 3.3%, and 0%, respectively.

Mentions: A total of 2656 articles were retrieved in our searches, of which, 842 articles (260 from the East and 582 from the West) were found to be focused on NM. The proportion of articles on NM in the 8 selected journals during the search period was 13.4% in GE, 6.1% in GUT, 11.9% in AJG, 100% in NGM, 23.5% in AJP-GI, 12.3% in JGE, 9.3% in JGH, and 100% in JNM, respectively (Table 1). When the articles on NM were analyzed in terms of the corresponding author’s country, the number of articles from the East and the West were 2 (3.3%) and 59 (96.7%), respectively in GE, 0 and 21 (100%) in GUT, 4 (11.1%) and 32 (88.9%) in AJG, 42 (12.7%) and 288 (87.3%) in NGM, 10 (9.9%) and 91 (90.1%) in AJP-GI, 22 (61.1%) and 14 (38.9%) in JGE, 30 (81.1%) and 7 (18.9%) in JGH, and 150 (68.2%) and 70 (31.8%) in JNM (Fig. 2). The Eastern countries that published articles on NM in the 8 journals included Korea (94, 37%), Japan (65, 25%), China (40, 16%), Taiwan (17, 7%), India (16, 6%), and others (Thailand, Iran, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Singapore, and Turkey) (Fig. 3).

ABSTRACT
There is a paucity of studies that compare the differences in published articles submitted from the East and the West in the area of neurogastroenterology and motility (NM). To compare the article topics from the East and the West which have been published, 5 Western (Gastroenterology, Gut, American Journal of Gastroenterology, American Journal of Physiology-Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology, and Neurogastroenterology and Motility) and 3 Eastern gastrointestinal journals (Journal of Gastroenterology, Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, and Journal of Neurogastroenterology and Motility) were selected based on the impact factor. Published papers were classified into 12 categories and 60 subcategories. The titles and abstracts of review articles, original articles, and meta-analyses from these journals were reviewed for the last 2 years (2013-2014). In case of Journal of Neurogastroenterology and Motility which is published quarterly, this search was performed for 5 years (2010-2014). Of the total 2656 reviewed articles, 842 (260 from the East and 582 from the West) were classified into the category of NM. The most frequently published papers from the Western researchers were categorized as brain-gut interaction, visceral hypersensitivity, and irritable bowel syndrome, whereas those from the Eastern researchers were categorized as gastroesophageal reflux disease, functional dyspepsia, and irritable bowel syndrome. This difference between the East and the West is not just due to the journal itself, but it also depends on the author's affiliation and their ability to perform high quality research in the area of the NM. These data provide evidence for the research trend and give valuable information to the researchers for determining subjects for the study and for selecting proper journals for publishing their studies.
