Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal

The Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal is a new peer-review, open-access journal. This new publication focuses 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.

CVDHJ Special Issue: Artificial Intelligence in Cardiology

Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal: Special Issue CoverCall for Manuscripts
Cardiovascular disease remains one of our most important public health challenges. Machine learning tools hold tremendous promise by leveraging large datasets containing disparate data sources and novel computational techniques to improve health care delivery and outcomes.

The Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal will publish a Special issue in December 2021 dedicated to showcase the best machine learning approaches for understanding and management of cardiovascular disease. Our goal is to highlight machine learning techniques that can provide novel insights for pharmacological and interventional treatment of cardiovascular disease and lead to improved cardiovascular health outcomes and reduce health utilization and cost.

The Journal seeks original research and review papers focused on big data, innovative trial design, bias, data analytic methodologies, robotics, sensor technologies, biomedical informatics, economic and health policy research concerning the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Every submission will be considered through the Journal’s peer review process.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the Guide for Authors to prepare your manuscript. When submitting your manuscript via Editorial Manager, select the “special issue” article type and indicate in your cover letter that it is for the “Artificial Intelligence in Cardiology” special issue. The Guide for Authors and submission portal can be found on the Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal homepage:

Submissions will undergo standard peer review by independent reviewers. If accepted, your article will go into production immediately and will be published in this special issue in 2021. The Article Publishing Charge for this special issue will be waived.

Submissions must be received no later than July 26, 2021.
