Scope of Journal

Home   Back

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 of

  • Patients
  • Conditions
  • X-rays
  • Electrocardiograms
  • Echocardiograms
  • Angiograms
  • Peroperative photographs
  • Post-mortem photographs
  • Other imaging techniques

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.
