The Editors of Circulation Research are pleased to announce three new Compendia.

The April 25, 2014 issue of Circulation Research included a Compendium focused on Atrial Fibrillation, edited by Stanley Nattel. In addition, a Compendium on Acute Coronary Syndromes, edited by Valentin Fuster and Jason Kovacic, will be published in the June 6, 2014 issue, followed by a Compendium on Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, edited by Evangelos Michelakis, in the June 20, 2014 issue.

Special Preview: Read the introduction by Valentin Fuster and Jason Kovacic to the Acute Coronary Syndromes Compendium now!

Each Compendium is a collection of articles with a strong thematic focus on specific cardiovascular diseases or pathological conditions, discussing the major issues related to specific disease conditions, how these issues are being addressed in the laboratory and in the clinic, which important questions remain unanswered, and which pressing issues need urgent attention. The goal is to provide a state-of-the-art summary of both basic and clinical aspects of a disease. We view the Compendium as a one-stop shop for basic, translational, and clinical investigators who wish to gather a comprehensive assessment of a problem. Accordingly, we hope that Compendia will provide a valuable resource not only to experts and investigators in the field, but also to nontraditional readers of the journal, such as physicians, cardiology fellows, residents, and medical students.
