Aswan journal announces name change to Global Cardiology

11 July 2012

QScience.com is pleased to announce that its online, peer reviewed research journal, Aswan Heart Center Science & Practice Series, has officially changed its name to Global Cardiology Science & Practice.  This change is designed to more accurately describe the original mission of the journal, which is to present to its readership the latest in the areas of science, practice and global cardiology in almost equal proportions.

The journal, which published its first volume in April 2011, will carry the new name and logo for all research manuscripts published from this day forward.

Global Cardiology Science & Practice has this week published issue 3 on QScience.com, the digital publishing portal for research journals. All content in the journal is ‘open access’, meaning articles are free-to-read on the web and authors retain copyright on their works. Topics included in the issue range from cardiovascular inequalities among indigenous Australians, clinical and molecular classification of cardiomyopathies and an introduction to molecular genetics.

Sir Magdi Yacoub Editor in Chief for Global Cardiology said, “We remain fully committed to the mission of the journal and invite submissions in all three areas as well as comments on how we can improve our methods of achieving the declared objectives. We are delighted with the thought-provoking contributions from the highly distinguished authors of this edition who have demonstrated skill and originality in their analyses. The range of articles presented herein represents the international temperament of our journal, with authors from Europe, Australia, the USA, Asia and Qatar. Furthermore, the wide distribution and accessibility of this journal will maximize its readership and broaden its reach.”

Arend Küster, Managing Director of QScience, said, “The new title gives us the opportunity to reimage and expand the journal’s reach, while still providing high quality, original research from scholars in this field.”
QScience.com already hosts twelve scholarly journals covering diverse subject areas such as information & library studies, sustainable energy, education, medicine and bioscience, Middle Eastern healthcare, law, design and Islamic studies.  Many other journals are scheduled to be added in 2012.
