The European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention & Rehabilitation becomes the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology from January 2012

Risk Factors and Prevention

Sophia Antipolis, 13 January  2012 – SAGE and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) have announced that the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention & Rehabilitation will become the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology from January 2012.

The Journal is the official journal of the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (EACPR) of the European Society of Cardiology and embraces all the scientific, clinical and public health disciplines that address the causes and prevention of cardiovascular disease, as well as cardiovascular rehabilitation and exercise physiology.

It serves the interests of complementary working groups in the European Society of Cardiology and other European professional societies such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, diabetes, internal medicine, behavioural medicine and general practice. It provides an avenue for reports of the European Heart Network, national heart foundations, non-governmental and governmental organizations, and the European Union.

"We believe this will greatly help the Journal to take its position as the prime Journal in preventive cardiology and will make it even more obvious for authors of high quality research in this domain to find our editorial offices." Editor in Chief Diederick E. Grobbee, MD, PhD, FESC
