This journal is the official publication of the Indian Association of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons. It disseminates current clinical practices and developments in the area of cardiovascular surgery. This includes information on cardiovascular epidemiology, etiopathogenesis, clinical manifestation, and other topics.
Indian Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery features broad coverage of the topic, including cardiovascular anesthesia, cardiothoracic and vascular nursing and technology development, and new or innovative products.
Indian Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery follows a double blind peer review process with a minimum of 2 reviews for each article type. All original articles will undergo double blind peer reviews by two subject experts and one expert in statistics. Reviewer selection is carried out by the Editor-in-Chief either from author’s suggested list or from a classified list of invited and consented reviewers who are widely acclaimed, national and international authorities on the subject and registered in the database through the Editorial manager. In case of a split verdict, additional reviews are sought.
For those articles which sustain the detailed scrutiny by reviewers and editors, a provisional decision of acceptance is made and after thorough pre-acceptance checking, the decision of final acceptance is made and communicated to the author immediately. Both initial and pre-acceptance checking ensures that ethical requirements are complete, to produce a high-quality article. Turn-around time is generally 1-2 months for rejection and 3-4 months for acceptance
Associate Editors assist the Editor in Chief by handling assigned manuscripts and are totally independent and unbiased in their decision making with no conflict of interests. They ensure timely publication of the journal, besides overlooking ethical issues and scientific contents of the journal.

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
