Aims & Scope

Nature Reviews Cardiology's clinical, translational, and basic science content is written by internationally renowned clinicians, academics, and researchers, and targeted towards readers in the biological and medical sciences, from postgraduate level upwards. While intended to be read by practising doctors and research scientists working in the cardiovascular field, we aim to make all our articles accessible to readers working in any biological or medical discipline.

In-depth Reviews present authoritative, up-to-date information on a topic, placing it in the context of a field's history and development. Consensus Statements provide evidence-based recommendations from a task force of experts. Topical discussion and opinions are given in Perspectives and News & Views articles. In the Research Highlights section, we filter primary research from a range of cardiovascular and general medical journals.
