The American Journal of Cardiovascular Disease (AJCD) (ISSN 2160-200X), is an open access, online only journal to facilitate rapid publication and circulation of novel discoveries in basic and clinical sciences of cardiovascular diseases. It was founded by a group of scientists for cardiovascular research and clinical academic physicians from around the world, who are devoted to the promotion and advancement of our understanding of the cardiovascular diseases and their treatments.
The scope of AJCD is intended to encompass that of multi-disciplinary researchers from any scientific discipline where the primary focus of the research is to increase and integrate knowledge about etiology and molecular mechanisms of cardiovascular and cardiovascular diseases with the ultimate aim of advancing the cure and prevention of this group of diseases. To achieve these aims, AJCD will publish review articles, original articles and new techniques in cardiovascular research and disease therapy. It will also publish hypothesis, case reports and letter to the editor.
Unlike most other open access online journals, AJCD will keep most of the traditional features of paper print that we are all familiar with, such as continuous volume, issue numbers, as well as continuous page numbers to retain our comfortable familiarity towards an academic journal.
AJCD will be officially launched in June, 2011, and published as a quarterly journal. Publication frequencies can be increased to as bi-monthly or even monthly if more manuscripts are received. We are accepting manuscript submissions at this time. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed and published within one month if accepted. If you are interested in submitting a manuscript to AJCD for consideration of publication, please read the journal’s Guidelines for Author and e- mail the manuscript to the Editorial Office at editorial@AJCD.us.
We are also inviting you to join the editorial board of AJCD. Please read the editorial board policy and then contact us together with your updated CV, 5-10 keywords of your research interest, the weblink of your professional webpage that is hosted in your affiliated university or institute if you are interested in becoming an editorial board member.
