The Journal of Cardiac Failure (JCF), the official journal of the Heart Failure Society of America and the Japanese Heart Failure Society, supports and promotes Simultaneous Publications at the time of Scientific Session Presentations. JCF is committed to working with authors to support publication of high-quality science simultaneously with presentation at scientific sessions. This approach provides authors with peer-review feedback in advance of presentation to the research community, which could enhance the primary presentation itself. It also supports broader dissemination of the content in a timely manner. Opportunities for concomitant editorial commentary may also further contextualize study results for relevant stakeholders including patients.
While simultaneous publication of high-quality content cannot be guaranteed due to the timelines of the review process, the JCF is committed to expedited reviews and efficient decision times. Requisite confidentiality and embargo requirements will be rigorously maintained. Please submit via the JCF portal and include details of the target meeting for simultaneous publication in your cover letter.
