JACC: Basic to Translational Science is an open access journal that serves as a platform for accelerating the translation of new scientific discoveries into new therapies that improve clinical outcomes for patients afflicted with or at risk for cardiovascular disease. JACC: Basic to Translational Science seeks to become both a forum and a learning center for investigators in academia and industry, patients and families, the National Heart Blood and Lung Institute and the US Food and Drug Administration to help advance translation cardiovascular medicine.
We are partnering with SSRN to provide JACC: Basic to Translational Science First Look, a pre-print site on which participating research will be showcased while it undergoes the review process. This will allow researchers to have very early access to forthcoming work, as well as supporting researchers in the early distribution of their research.
JACC: Basic to Translational Science First Look is an author opt-in preview of the papers under review in our primary research journal. An invitation to submit to First Look is provided to all authors of primary research articles at the time they are first sent for peer review. First Look makes papers discoverable earlier in the publication process.
