Meet the Editors

Watch the Editors-in-Chief of Heart and Open Heart discuss the scope of the journals, their special features, and how to get your paper published.

Heart Asia

Open Heart's sister journal Heart Asia has just relaunched! It welcomes manuscripts with a focus on the Asia Pacific or other developing regions of the world.

New! Faster Submissions

We know that authors can find the manuscript submission process time-consuming, so we are pleased to report that we have implemented a streamlined submission process for original research articles. By asking fewer questions at initial submission we hope to minimise the time that authors spend uploading their manuscripts and responding to post-submission queries, resulting in a faster time to first decision.
