Welcome to Indian Heart Journal

Indian Heart Journal (IHJ) is the official open access journal of Cardiological Society of India and accepts articles for publication from across the globe.

The journal aims to promote high quality research and serve as a platform for dissemination of scientific information in cardiology with particular focus on South Asia. The journal aims to publish cutting edge research in the field of clinical as well as non-clinical cardiology - including cardiovascular medicine and surgery.

The Indian Heart Journal is the most widely read cardiology journal in the India reaching more than 27,000 hospital specialists and primary care physicians every two months.

The only bi-monthly journal which provides primary and secondary care with original research, clinical reviews, commentaries and news across a broad range of cardiovascular topics.

Exclusive original coverage of the fast developing field of cardiology written from the Indian viewpoint.

Extensive opportunities for special projects including supplements, symposia reports and practical guidelines.

The Indian Heart Journal provides reviews and discussions of current developments in cardiology and other relevant specialties to cardiologists and general practitioners with an interest in this field.
