American Heart Association Launches Peer-Reviewed and Open Access Journal
From the American Heart Association:
The American Heart Association has launched the online-only open-access Journal of the American Heart Association: Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease (JAHA)— packed with free peer-reviewed research on heart disease and stroke.
“We envision JAHA as a forum for high quality original articles that cover the full range of cardiovascular science, including basic science, translational science, clinical trials and epidemiological and outcomes research,” said Joseph A. Vita, M.D., JAHA editor in chief.
As with the association’s 11 print journals, articles will undergo rigorous peer review prior to publication. The online format won’t have limits on the length of articles, the number of photos and illustrations, or the use of color or video. Thus, “authors will be able to present all aspects of their work,” Vita said. Also, open-access means content will be rapidly and widely accessible, accelerating the translation of science into practice.
