Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology publishes high-quality, clinically relevant articles focusing on advances in the understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. This new journal reflects the rapid evolution of cardiac electrophysiology as a discipline in its own right. Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology presents critical new research on topics related to clinical applications such as devices for arrhythmia management, catheter ablation, the pathophysiology of the arrhythmia substrate, and novel biologic therapies. Commentaries and reviews on topics of special interest, editorials and opinion pieces, and additional features provide a worldwide forum for all professionals in the field. Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology is the first of 6 new journals that will be launched in 2008, in the Circulation portfolio of journals, by the American Heart Association (http://my.americanheart.org).

Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology Online contains the full content of each issue of the journal, including all figures and tables, beginning with the April 2008 issue (Volume 1, Issue 1). The full text is searchable by key word, and the cited references include hyperlinks to Medline and to the online full text of many other frequently cited journals. PDF files, abstracts, and Tables of Contents are also available beginning with the April 2008 (Volume 1, Issue 1).

Each issue will be placed online approximately on the date it is mailed to subscribers; therefore, the online site will be available prior to receipt of your paper copy. The April 2008 issue (Volume 1, Issue 1) is the inaugural issue of the journal. Online readers may want to sign up for the eTOC (electronic Table of Contents) service, which will deliver each new issue's table of contents via email. The Web site also provides access to information about the journal (eg, Instructions for Authors, contact information for the Editorial Office, and subscription information), as well as access to the AHA Web site. Beginning on April 30, articles will be published online 8 to 10 weeks ahead of print.

The inaugural issue of Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology is offered as free sample issue. Subsequent to the first issue, access to the full text of articles will be available by institutional license, which comes with all institutional subscriptions, or by individual subscription available to print subscribers or AHA members. All other access (eg, to Abstracts, eTOCs, searching, Instructions for Authors) will remain freely available. Individual articles will be available for purchase to non-subscribers, and all articles will become free 12 months after publication.

We would appreciate comments, critiques, questions, or suggestions from you; these can be sent via the Feedback link found on all pages of the site. Feedback from readers will help us decide what new features would be most valuable for the site and how well it is working for its readers.
