European Society of Cardiology and Oxford University Press launch new Open Access European Heart Journal – Case Reports

European Heart Journal – Case Reports (EHJ - Case Reports) is the new international, online only, fully open access (OA) journal of high quality cardiology case reports, published by Oxford University Press (OUP) for the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). 

EHJ - Case Reports' primary aim is to publish educationally valuable case reports, images, and quality improvement projects spanning all aspects of cardiology and cardiovascular medicine. The journal will promote learning of junior cardiologists by providing quality resources as well as operating a mentorship scheme designed to develop junior reviewers and editors under the close guidance of experienced senior reviewers and editors.

Editor-in-Chief Professor John Camm commented, “This journal is really for the cardiologists of tomorrow. We are very interested in providing not only a publication vehicle for them but also an educational tool. We want to work with the various young groups in the European Society of Cardiology to produce the journal they require.”

Assistant Editor Dr Fielder Camm added, “We are looking forward to seeing a range of manuscripts representing clinical practice across Europe and further abroad. A really exciting aspect for us is the opportunity to help shape the younger community of researchers and clinicians, helping them develop skills they’ll need to excel in their careers.”

Professor John Camm and Dr Fielder Camm are inviting submissions in the following formats:

Case reports which feature novel findings, new management strategies, or illustrated cases of rare classical conditions

  • Images
  • Audits and Quality Improvement Projects
  • Grand rounds which draw on extensive multidisciplinary evaluation in order to highlight a pathology with cardiac implications
  • Case Series – small selection of similar cases, or cases reaching similar conclusions

As part of the ESC Journal Family, EHJ – Case Reports will adhere to the highest of editorial standards, deliver rigorous and constructive peer review, and expose authors to a global readership.

The journal is now open for submissions, and content will launch for ESC Congress 2017. Visit the website for more information, submission guidelines, and sign up to receive content alerts by email or RSS:
