What types of articles are published by EIJ?

EIJ publishes peer-reviewed articles in English over the entire spectrum of diagnostics and interventions in cardiovascular medicine. In addition to clinical and translational research studies, EIJ publishes state-of-the-art reviews, Expert Reviews, meta-analyses, expert consensus documents, trial design papers, short reports, editorials and viewpoints. Case reports are not considered for publication except when they include striking images of significant educational value in and are submitted in the form of “Interventional flashlights”.

Can I submit a review article?

Review articles are generally on invitation only. If you wish to propose a review article, we kindly ask that the pre-submission enquiry form is completed detailing the intended synopsis.

Can I ask for fast-track review?

In infrequent circumstances, EIJ assigns a fast track status to submissions of timely importance or to coordinate simultaneous publication at the time of international conferences. Authors may request a rapid review using the pre-submission enquiry form or in their cover letter, detailing why they believe their manuscript is suitable for this option. The Editors will decide and communicate within 2 business days whether the manuscript is suitable for fast track or regular review. Approval for fast track review does not guarantee acceptance of the manuscript, nor does it guarantee expedited publication if the manuscript is accepted, unless the publication is intended to coincide with presentation at an international conference.
