Despite the ongoing COVID0-19 pandemic, the last year has seen Frontline Gastroenterology continue to publish great content that educates and informs doctors around the world to provide care for their patients. We are grateful to everyone who has submitted their work to us. To celebrate this, we have launched the #FGCup on Twitter to allow our readers to vote for their favourite ‘in print’ paper of the past year. Based on Mark Beattie’s Editor’s Choices from the past year of print journals (see below for links to the original articles), this will be run as a knockout competition over the course of January.

Get involved and let us know which papers you like and why! Follow us on Twitter @FrontGastro_BMJ to keep up with the #FGCup and continue to send us your best work.
