Aims and Scope

Scientific and clinical progress in cardiology

Established in 1937, 'Cardiology' provides a forum for scientific progress in the prevention, recognition, and treatment of heart disease. Bridging clinical, preclinical, and translational research, the contents include original research articles, topical reviews, and expert opinion commentaries. Sections such as “Coronary Artery Disease”, “Imaging”, “Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia”, or “eCardiology/Digital Health” highlight the wide variety of subspecialty areas covered and feature new developments in noninvasive and invasive diagnostic methods, epidemiology, as well as pharmacological, preventive, and mechanical/surgical therapies. 'Cardiology' publishes articles relevant to cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, internists, clinical physiologists, pharmacologists, and professionals from other areas of medicine interested in cardiovascular diseases. Note that submissions describing basic research should have a translational focus.
