It is with immense pleasure, I wish to share that our society women in cardiology and related sciences, has embarked on a new journey with Scientific Scholar as the New Publisher for our official publication, Indian Journal of Cardiovascular Disease in Women (IJCDW). As we were in our transition phase from our previous publisher to our current publisher, the publication of issue 2 of 2022 got significantly delayed. However, now with things settled, we look forward to bringing our issues on time and shall ensure that both the remaining two issues of 2022 are published before the end of the calendar year.
Also, I am pleasured to share that a new generation of editorial team, under the leadership of Prof. Shibha Chhabra, shall be taking over the responsibility of progressing the journal from 2023 onward. IJCDW achieved a DOAJ indexation in the past and got recognized by National Medical Council of India. Now, our aim is to compete for PubMed Central recognition. For the same, we are thankful to our authors, who have kept their interest in our journal and have consistently submitted engaging clinical content over the years, ranging from comparative studies on adolescent girls, to novel findings addressing monitoring aortic pressure and so on. As members of the Editorial Board of the journal, we have also tried to contribute toward dissemination of quality educational content for our curious readers with narrative reviews addressing several topics, the latest describing the current understanding of hypertension in woman and what the future may hold and shall continue to try our best.
Apart from publishing, we have been active on the social media keeping in line with the new generation needs and our Twitter account @ijcdw has been actively engaged in digital clinical conversations. We would encourage our readers to follow, like, and retweet posts coming from our Twitter handle as well as that our new Publisher Scientific Scholar @scientifscholar to expand our coverage. Recently, we introduced “Images in cardiology,” mainly to educate budding cardiologists and students to familiarize the common heart diseases as well as rare cases images.
Having the aim of PubMed Central recognition, we would like to encourage our authors to come forward and contribute to the best of their investigations addressing trending topics, unique cases, reviews, and analytics. The new submission site is https://editorialassist.com/#/login/ijcdw , where an author can seamlessly register oneself and submit his/her article. We shall maintain the highest standards of double-blinded peer reviews and would ensure that IJCDW continues to serve as the unique journal of choice for dissemination of quality clinical research addressing cardiovascular complications in women.
