Los Angeles, CA (December 19, 2011) SAGE and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) have announced the launch of the European Heart Journal: Acute Cardiovascular Care. The first issue will be published in the Spring of 2012.
The ESC represents over 70,000 cardiology professionals across Europe and the Mediterranean, providing an array of scientific and educational activities including publishing seven of the world's leading cardiology journals.
SAGE already publishes the ESC's European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention & Rehabilitation.
The European Heart Journal: Acute Cardiovascular Care is the official Journal of the Working Group on Acute Cardiac Care of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). It aims to publish the highest quality material, both clinical and scientific, on all aspects of acute cardiac care, such as acute coronary syndromes, cardiogenic shock, cardiac arrest, cardiac arrhythmias and acute heart failure.
The Journal offers a unique integrative approach combining the expertise of the different subspecialties of cardiology, emergency and intensive care medicine in the management of patients with acute cardiovascular syndromes.
The journal will include clinical research reports on all topics related to acute cardiovascular care with ample space also dedicated to educational materials such as reviews, clinical case discussions, practical tips & tricks and how-to articles.
"SAGE is thrilled to be deepening our relationship with the ESC as one of the foremost cardiology societies in the world", said Ziyad Marar, Global Publishing Director, SAGE. "Our commitment to our scholarly partners is to offer both the global dissemination of education and scholarship and a relationship built on shared understanding and trust. Over the last year we have been working with the ESC to support their goals, and we are committed to building an even stronger partnership through the publication of this new journal."
Prof Christiaan Vrints, from Antwerp University Hospital in Belgium and Editor in Chief of the European Heart Journal: Acute Cardiovascular Care said: "We cover a much needed platform, focusing on patient care, ranging from the pre hospital phase to the time the patients leave the Intensive or Coronary Care Unit. Our new journal is not disease specific nor limited to the scope of a particular methodology.
We encompass the entire spectrum of diagnostic and treatment capabilities and the multidisciplinary nature of modern health care. The European Heart Journal: Acute Cardiovascular Care, aims at translating new evidence based concepts into daily clinical care and will therefore also have a strong educational focus."
