JACC: Case Reports
The American College of Cardiology (ACC) will begin publishing a new journal, JACC: Case Reports, beginning in June 2019, with Julia Grapsa, MD, PhD, FACC, serving as Editor-in-Chief.
About the Journal
JACC: Case Reports is an open access journal, serving a forum for promoting clinical cases and clinical problem solving. It will accept everyday educational or rare clinical cases, well described and with clear learning objectives. Furthermore, the journal aims to serve as a publication vehicle for early career cardiologists and members of the cardiovascular care team, and as a forum for mentorship on the review and publication process.
The journal is now accepting case reports including clinical cases, clinical case series and global health reports – as well as imaging vingettes, letters to the editor and viewpoints submissions. Complete author instructions are available on the submission site, JACCSubmit-CaseReports.org
