More Issues. More Impact. More Opportunity.


Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology has increased its frequency! It is now published monthly.


The journal is continuously published, which means that articles are available online sooner. Twelve issues per year means that articles will be deposited more rapidly into the Science Citation Index. As a monthly publication, more issues mean more content. Editorials and reviews will highlight opinions, put articles into context, and summarize topics of contemporary interest to the clinician.

New Expedited Review and Publication Track from Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions


Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions is pleased to announce the addition of an expedited review and publication option for authors of high-impact research.


Expedited Publication: The purpose of this section is to provide authors an avenue through which to rapidly publish original work that communicates novel, influential, and clinically impactful research. Submissions of standard-length original research will be considered.

In order to be considered for this expedited track, authors must send a request for consideration via email to circ@circulationjournal.orghref>; this request must include a cover letter that details why expedited review and publication are warranted, as well as a draft of the manuscript. The editors will decide whether the manuscript is appropriate for expedited processing within 48 hours of receipt. If approved, the paper should be submitted to the journal's submission site, http://circinterventions-submit.aha-journals.orghref>; an initial decision regarding publication will be made within 7 days of formal submission. If revisions are required, authors will have 5 days to resubmit the paper. If accepted, the paper will publish within 16 business days of acceptance.

Authors of manuscripts not offered expedited consideration may still submit their work via the standard review process.
