Scandinavian Cardiovascular Journal is a a new publication established through collaboration between the Scandinavian cardiological societies in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and the Scandinavian Association for Thoracic Surgery, which all have adopted the journal as their official organ.

The principal aim of the journal is to promote cardiovascular research that crosses disciplinary boundaries. The journal will be a forum for the entire field of cardiovascular research, including cardiology, cardiovascular surgery and clinical physiology. By creating a clinical profile based on a broad concept, the journal will endeavour to attract an international audience as well as members of the Scandinavian societies.

This unique concept will allow cross citation and international accessibility to original papers, clinical reviews, book reviews, etc., within basic research, preventive, clinical and interventional cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, central vascular surgery, transplantation, and extracorporeal technology. Doctorial theses and reports of transactions from scientific meetings maybe published as supplements.

The Journal is run by three Scandinavian Editors supported by an Editorial Board of approximately fifty distinguished Scandinavian and international cardiovascular investigators.

Scandinavian Cardiovascular Journal replaces the Scandinavian Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery and is published by the Society for the Publication of Acta Chirurgica Scandinavica, founded by Professor Axel Key in 1869 and sponsored by the Key Foundation, Sweden.

The Journal is published in English, with six issues a year, each comprising 60-70 pages. The first issue will be published in April 1997.

Thoracic surgeons, cardiologists, Specialists in vascular surgery and clinical physiology.
