Call for Papers: Sex and Gender Differences in Hypertension

Special Issue Editors: Paul Connelly & Christian Delles

Pathogenesis, diagnosis, management and outcome of hypertension is different between men and women. These differences are not restricted to biological sex but extend to gender where more complex social factors contribute to gender differences.

JHH therefore announces a call for a special issue on the topic of sex and gender differences in hypertension. This broad title hopes to capture the latest preclinical and clinical research on areas that include, but are not restricted to: preclinical models of hypertension; pathogenesis of hypertension; sex hormones; clinical trials; guidelines; transgender health; and hypertension-associated organ damage – all with a focus on differences between males and females.

Interested authors must email the editors a draft abstract or ideas page that also highlights the novelty of the manuscript. This crucial step will determine suitability and save time all around. The editors welcome the submission of original articles, reviews/systematic reviews, perspectives and comments. We will endeavour to fast-tracked all submitted paper, but they will still undergo JHH’s peer review process. The editor’s decision is final.

Deadline for submission: 30th April 2022.
