The American Heart Journal
will consider for publication suitable articles on topics pertaining to the broad discipline of cardiovascular disease
. Our goal is to provide the reader primary investigation, scholarly review, and opinion concerning the practice of cardiovascular medicine
. We especially encourage submission
of 3 types of reports that are not frequently seen in cardiovascular journals: negative clinical studies, reports on study designs, and studies involving the organization of medical care. The Journal
does not accept individual case reports or original articles involving bench laboratory or animal research.
