About the Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal

The Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal is a new peer-review, open-access journal. This new publication will focus on the rapidly emerging field of digital medicine across all areas of cardiology. We serve the global digital health, clinical, and wider health communities in the entire field of cardiology by promoting high-quality science and supporting the ethical use of technologies and data in practice.

It publishes original, important, innovative, and practice-changing research in the areas of artificial intelligence, signal processing, monitoring, wearables, implantable devices/sensors, biometric analysis, disease detection, data analytics, and other relevant topics.

Submissions of quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, economic, and health policy research papers will be considered through a peer-review process.

The Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal will be published every other month beginning in August 2020.
