American Heart Association to launch new journal dedicated to stroke and vascular disease

A collaboration between the American Heart Association and the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology will create a new journal titled Stroke: Vascular and Interventional Neurology, which is expected to begin publishing in early 2021. 

The peer-reviewed, open access journal will be published bi-monthly online and will be dedicated to “reporting clinical, translational and basic sciences research on interventional, endovascular, medical and surgical management of stroke and vascular disease of the brain, spinal cord, and head and neck,” the statement said. 

AHA and SVIN also issued a call for an editor-in-chief of the new journal. 

“This journal will be an important platform for researchers and clinicians focused on vascular care and innovations in new procedures and treatments to share their findings,” said David Liebeskind, MD, president of SVIN and director of the stroke center at University of California Los Angeles.
