Journal of the American Heart Association — New Open Access Journal Now Live

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association continues to set the gold standard for publishing cardiology and stroke research with the introduction of the Journal of the American Heart Association, a new online-only, peer-reviewed, Open Access publication, to its portfolio of 11 scientific journals.

JAHA provides a global forum for basic and clinical research articles and timely reviews on cardiovascular disease and stroke. As an Open Access journal, its content is rapidly and freely available, accelerating the translation of strong science into effective practice.

The journal has launched with five original research articles and three editorials that are free for you to read, download, and share. Of particular note,  ‘Relationship of National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale to 30-Day Mortality in Medicare Beneficiaries With Acute Ischemic Stroke’ by Gregg C. Fonarow and colleagues offers an important insight and will be part of the AHA Emerging Science Series webinar on February 29th.
