Author Guidelines

Article types: We predominantly publish one of these main article types:  

  • Research articles should describe a piece of original research, with results (positive or negative) which advance the scientific field or add evidence to a proposed theory. All research articles are expected to be appropriately referenced, citing all prior research pertinent to the work being presented.  
  • Review articles are typically commissioned by the editor-in-chief, but we do welcome ad hoc submissions. Reviews should be a comprehensive overview of a segment of a field. They should be heavily referenced and include citations to the latest works. There is no maximum length for these, but anything over 50,000 words would be exceptional. 
  • Images in cardiology are detailed case reports of the symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of an individual patient. They should include as many high-res colour images as possible.
  • Lessons from the trials These are largely invited articles, however the editors welcome current trials or recent databases which have been published within the last 18 months and which are judged to be of importance to clinical practice, whether in a positive or negative way. Submissions should aim to be under 6000 words and follow the format described below:
    • Title: List trial name(s) first with a short intepretation 
    • Abstract: <150 words
    • Introduction: Summarise previous work in the field and ending with why this trial was performed.
    • Description of trial
    • Critique & discussion of trial
    • What have we learned? Summarising whether this trial will change clinical practice positively or negatively and outline what is required in the future in terms of research.
    • References. Permissive and encourage inclusion of all relevant references, with no limits on number.  
  • Editorials are usually reserved for the editor-in-chief and editorial board. However guest editorials will occasionally be commissioned. Again, if you wish to be considered for writing an editorial, please email us. 
  • Letters: We encourage readers of the journal to engage in formal communication with the journal via a Letter to the Editor. Letters should typically be short (<500 words), concise and consist of no more than 3 authors and 5 references. Letters to the Editor should be submitted via the manuscript submission system.
