Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Journal of Cardiovascular Development and Disease is planning to create a Special Issue that focuses on computational cardiology. In this Special Issue, we will highlight some of the recent developments advancing our understanding and diagnosis of cardiovascular disease. The enhancement of imaging modalities facilitated the resolution of disease initiation and progression, which until recently was only available in humans post mortem. Advances in cardiovascular computational modeling and cardiovascular informatics, together with these novel imaging modalities, engender new opportunities for earlier interventions and better outcomes in cardiovascular disease, among the most prevalent causes of human mortality. In this Special Issue, entitled “Models and Methods for Computational Cardiology”, we welcome you to contribute a research paper or review article addressing any aspect of this topic, including novel basic science or clinical approaches that better define the mechanisms of cardiovascular development and pathology. Novel models for pediatric and adult heart disease, including those that seek to improve the outcomes of surgical interventions, are also relevant topics for this Special Issue. This is an excellent opportunity for clinical and basic sciences trainees in your group to contribute to the field.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Cardiovascular Development and Disease is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
