"Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine provides unrestricted access to the most current and clinically relevant information to clinicians, health professionals, and medical educators, reaching every country in the world. I am confident that the journal will become a key knowledge resource for cardiovascular medicine," says Chief Editor Matthias Barton, MD, of the University of Z-rich in Switzerland. "With each discipline led by renowned clinician-scientists as Chief Editors with their own editorial board of experts, we can ensure independent, high-quality and fast review of every manuscript received," adds Barton.

Reviewer names are disclosed on articles to enhance transparency. Frontiers advanced article impact metrics track the reach and impact of articles, and the community can engage in post-publication review.
