Explosion of Knowledge About Heart Failure Prompts New Journal

Circulation: Heart Failure, the second of six publications planned by the American Heart Association as extensions to its weekly journal, will debut in May and now has its editor. AHA announced May 7 that Dr. James E. Udelson, acting chief of the division of cardiology at Tufts-New England Medical Center and associate professor of medicine and radiology at Tufts University School of Medicine, will be the editor of Circulation: Heart Failure.

"Given the explosion of new information and knowledge in the heart failure field, the time seemed right for a journal devoted to exploring and highlighting many of those advances," said Udelson, who is a Circulation associate editor. "At the manuscript review meetings for Circulation, we found ourselves commonly having to reject high-quality manuscripts simply on the basis of priority or because the work had a focus that was felt to be too highly specialized in nature," he added. "It is our hope that Circulation: Heart Failure will provide a forum for continuing expansion of new knowledge that will ultimately increase our understanding of pathophysiology and translate into improved care for our patients."

The bimonthly journal will be published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, which is part of Wolters Kluwer Health. The journal will present high-quality, rigorously performed studies, basic research articles, topics and controversies in heart failure, the development of new drugs and devices, and case reports and imaging studies of interest to clinicians involved in treating heart failure. The first of the six to debut was Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology; coming later in 2008 are Circulation: Cardiovascular Genetics; Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging; Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes; and Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions. They will be available in print and online; visit http://circheartfailure.ahajournals.org next week for the newest one's first issue, which will is be available free to the public.
