Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Journals launches Aswan Heart Centre Science and Practice Series - in collaboration with Editor-in-Chief Sir Magdi Yacoub
Doha, Qatar -- April 24, 2011 Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Journals (BQFJ) today announced the launch of Aswan Heart Centre Science and Practice Series on QScience.com, its digital publishing portal for research journals. Aswan Heart Centre Science and Practice Series is a new, peer-reviewed international cardiology journal that is dedicated to keeping cardiologists abreast of advances in the influence of basic science on clinical practice. All content in the journal will be 'open access', meaning they are free-to-read on the web and authors retain copyright on their works.
Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives than any other disease whether in high or low-income countries. Research in Qatar has shown that one in 100 babies is born with heart disease, the most common forms of congenital problems being holes in heart, lack of valve formation, narrow arteries. This journal will provide a much-needed authoritative source and central forum on research and clinical practice.
Aswan Heart Centre Science and Practice Series encompasses, but is not limited to, the following areas; clinical cardiology, ischemic, valvular, congenital and myocardial disease, arrhythmias and pacing, heart failure, imaging,epidemiology, decision analysis, primary and secondary prevention and associated translational research.
Sir Magdi Yacoub, Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS), Editor-in-Chief of Aswan Heart Centre Science and Practice Series and Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London, said, "Aswan Heart Centre Science and Practice Series is the official publication of QAL Advanced Cardiovascular Network and a high quality, peer-reviewed journal that every researcher can access for free."
Arend Küster, Managing Director of BQFJ, said, "We are very proud to be launching Aswan Heart Centre Science and Practice Series and to be working Sir Magdi Yacoub and a team of extremely distinguished scientists.
