Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal

Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal - Aug 2021 CoverThe 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.

Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal publishes original, important, innovative, and practice-changing research on any topic connected with digital health and technology in the field of cardiology. Submissions of quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, economic and health policy research papers will be considered through a peer-review process.

Special Issue Call for Manuscripts: Preventive Digital Medicine

The Cardiovascular Digital Health Journal will focus its June 2022 issue on preventive digital medicine. The Journal is issuing a call for submissions of empirical research papers, reviews (systematic; meta-analyses), and perspectives related to behavioral and preventive medicine in the area of cardiovascular disease. The intersection of these fields is of high interest to patients, researchers, and clinicians, and the impact of ongoing research in this area is high.

Submissions focusing on digital health interventions (e.g., physical activity, mood management, smoking cessation, etc.) to improve cardiovascular fitness, recovery, or disease prevention are welcome. Similarly, submissions that examine associations of behavioral health measures from mobile health or electronic health sources with cardiovascular outcomes are also of interest.
