Publisher of the most cited open-access journals in their fields.
Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine is a global, peer-reviewed open access medical journal providing unrestricted, online access to publications on diagnostic and therapeutic advances in cardiology and cardiovascular disease. Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine publishes peer-reviewed scientific investigations of the highest quality that are of relevance for the diagnosis, treatment, or pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease and related disorders with the goal to understand disease processes and to improve medical practice and patient care.
The section Cardiac Rhythmology aims to advance the understanding of underlying mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias and conduction disturbances. The latter includes sinus node disease, inter- and intra-atrial blocks, AV block, and bundle branch block. Among the former are included premature atrial and ventricular beats, atrial tachycardias, supra-ventricular tachycardias, and ventricular arrhythmias. Other specific subjects covered by EP specialists like syncope and sudden cardiac death will also be covered.
The Editors of Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine encourage submission of Original Research Articles (clinical or preclinical), Reviews, Mini Reviews and Case Reports. Original research articles include manuscripts reporting results from clinical investigations, including Phase I-III trials and population studies. Reports from experimental studies from related areas such as physiology, pathophysiology, cellular and molecular biology, genetics, or pharmacology may be considered as as long as they relate to new understandings of pathogenic mechanisms or novel therapeutic approaches relevant to human disease. Articles related to medical education or the future development of medicine may also be considered.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Cardiac Rhythmology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Case Report, Clinical Study Protocol, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis & Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective and Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Cardiac Rhythmology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Cardiac Rhythmology will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Cardiovascular Medicine.
