QScience.com’s online, peer-reviewed research journal has officially changed its name from ‘Aswan Heart Center Science & Practice Series’ to ‘Global Cardiology Science & Practice’. This change is designed to more accurately describe the original mission of the publication, which is to present to its readership the latest advancements in the areas of science, practice and global cardiology.
The journal, which produced its first volume in April 2011, will carry the new name and logo for all its research manuscripts from this day forward.
Global Cardiology Science & Practice has this weekpublished Issue 3 onQScience.com, the digital publishing portal for research journals. All content is ‘open access’, meaning that articles are free to read on the internet, and that authors retain copyright on their work. Research topics covered in the issue include a study into 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.

Furthermore, the wide distribution and accessibility of this journal will maximise its readership and broaden its reach.”
