Scope of Journal
The distribution of a printed journal is inherently restricted, and may
unintentionally exclude potentially interested readers who are unaware
of the publication, or are unable to obtain it within a reasonable
period of time, or cannot afford to subscribe to such a publication. The
paediatric cardiology subspeciality is easy to illustrate by means of
pictures, and the World Wide Web constitutes an ideal medium for the
dissemination of graphical information, due to the ease and low cost of
production of images on-line, rather than as formal printed images.
The scope of the Journal is therefore
... to illustrate graphically
the subspeciality of paediatric cardiology by means of on-line pictures
There are numerous web sites dealing with paediatric cardiology that
cater for non-professionals and for health care providers. This Journal
is a paediatric cardiology publication aimed at professionals only, and
is the first, exclusively on-line, paediatric cardiology journal. It is
not the aim of this site to compete with other Journals.
The contents of the Journal are meant to
be used as a teaching resource. Downloading of material is encouraged
for teaching purposes, provided that the Journal is cited or
acknowledged. Written permission must be sought before material
published in the Journal may be reused for purposes other than teaching

available on CDROM (see Journal
subscription on CDROM).
