Date:3/5/2013

NEW YORK, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

First publication now available online

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and the American College of Cardiology (ACC) are pleased to announce that the American College of Cardiology (ACC) journals' portfolio has been expanded with the launch of JACC: Heart Failure. This new journal will better meet the demands and challenges of treating what is now the most rapidly increasing category of cardiac disease.

Christopher O'Connor , MD, FACC will serve as Editor-in-Chief of JACC: Heart Failure. Each bi-monthly issue will present high-quality content, authored by experts worldwide, with a unique focus on new research and treatment options. It is destined to take its place among the top journals in the world for the understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and care of heart failure patients with the intent to improve our understanding of the disease, clinical trials, clinical outcomes, and advances in therapies through scientific communication.

A state-of-the-condition update by Dr. Eugene Braunwald and the breadth of articles featured in the first issue are an example of the journal's aims to publish the full range of topics related to this condition - including basic and translational science, trials and registries, co-morbidities, biomarkers, advanced heart failure, and outcomes.

"The addition of JACC: Heart Failure to ACC's current portfolio will help meet the need for more research in this growing field," said ACC President William Zoghbi , MD, FACC. "With the increasing rate of patients suffering from heart failure, the science presented in this new journal will give cardiologists access to valuable new research."

"We are delighted to be publishing JACC: Heart Failure in collaboration with the ACC," says Cynthia Baudendistel , Executive Publisher for the ACC journals at Elsevier. "We look forward to seeing the impact this journal will make on cardiology practice, research, teaching, and advocacy."
