Aims and scope

Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research (JCTR) is a premier journal in cardiovascular translational research.

JCTR is the journal of choice for authors seeking the broadest audience for emerging technologies, therapies and diagnostics, pre-clinical research, and first-in-man clinical trials.

JCTR's intent is to provide a forum for critical evaluation of the novel cardiovascular science, to showcase important and clinically relevant aspects of the new research, as well as to discuss the impediments that may need to be overcome during the translation to patient care.

JCTR encourages submission of original articles, reports on study designs, and review articles.
