A happy New Year 2018! We would like to greet the New Year with the familiar custom of our Welcome editorial, and Editors' Choice articles,[1] [2] [3] [4] reflecting on an eventful year in 2017.

Still marked in our hearts and minds, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of Thrombosis and Haemostasis in 2017!

With around 900 submissions in 2017, we are happy and grateful that our authors and readers continue to keep us busy. We are delighted to report that our impact factor is now 5.627, corresponding to the steady growth of our journal's profile and impact in the scientific community over the past 3 years.

We continue to serve as a link journal for the European Society of Cardiology Working Groups on Thrombosis and on Atherosclerosis and Vascular Biology, as well as being the official journal of the Spanish Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (SETH), the Gesellschaft für Thrombose- und Hämostaseforschung (GTH), and the Australian Vascular Biology Society (AVBS). Thrombosis and Haemostasis supports disseminating of important position documents, epitomizing the journal's cutting edge information and consensus recommendations.
