Court of Appeals

Authors may submit manuscripts that went through peer review but were ultimately rejected from other cardiology journals as part of the JCF Court of Appeals process. The comments from previous reviewers (and the authors’ responses to these comments) must be included in the initial submission as supplemental materials. The previous review will be considered by the editors in their initial review of the paper. 

The JCF Court of Appeals process allows for an expedited review of most manuscripts. Authors should indicate in their cover letter their request to use JCF Court of Appeals and select it as the Article Type when submitting their manuscript.
