News from Circulation: Heart Failure
DALLAS, May 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Heart Association has named the editor of Circulation: Heart Failure, its second of the planned six-publication extension to the weekly flagship journal, Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. The journals will be published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.
James E. Udelson, M.D., 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 serve as 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 also is an associate editor for Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.
"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," Udelson said. "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."
"I am extremely pleased with the release of the second member of the Circulation portfolio of cardiovascular subspecialty journals, and with its new editor, Dr. Jim Udelson. With his strong leadership, this journal will rapidly become a major source of the latest information in the field of heart failure," said Joseph Loscalzo, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of Circulation and the Circulation subspecialty journal family.
Udelson says the new bi-monthly journal reflects the rapid growth and
unfolding new directions in the field
