State-of-the-art knowledge from across the spectrum of cardiovascular medicine

"Cardiovascular Medicine" is the official publication of the the Swiss Society for Angiology, the Swiss Society of Cardiac Surgery, the Swiss Society of Hypertension and the Swiss Paediatric Cardiology Society.  

The open access journal “Cardiovascular Medicine” is an international clinical practice journal.

The journal publishes reviews from recognized experts in the field, covering current topics and news pertaining to cardiology, angiology, hypertension, cardiovascular surgery, as well as other related disciplines, and selected reports of original research. These articles are rounded off with in-depth guidelines, the latest developments in the scientific community, as well as clinical case reports.

There are also special editions that focus on hot topic issues, as well as summary reports of national conferences.

As a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), "Cardiovascular Medicine" adheres in all respects to the criteria of the "Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing".

"Cardiovascular Medicine" is listed in the "Directory of Open Access Journals" (DOAJ) and thus meets the SIWF's requirements for a peer reviewed journal (see SIWF leaflet [PDF] and information on the title of specialist in cardiology]).
