The new journal Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications (CVIA) has been launched with a Special Issue on Heart Failure. CVIA was founded on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Great Wall-International Congress of Cardiology (GW-ICC) in 2014 by Professor Dayi Hu, president of the GW-ICC and past president of the Chinese Society of Cardiology, who will serve as Founding Editor.
C. Richard Conti, MD, a past president of the American College of Cardiology and former Editor of Clinical Cardiology, servers as Editor-in-Chief of the new journal, which has published its first issue to coincide with the GW-ICC meeting in October 2015 in Beijing, China.
The GW-ICC is one of the largest congresses in the Asian-Pacific region and is the most comprehensive and influential academic conference on cardiology. Held as a regular annual conference since 1990, GW-ICC has provided a platform for continuing education in cardiovascular disease diagnosis, treatment, and technology training, through events that leverage the expertise of internationally renowned cardiologists and scholars from the United States, Europe and Asia.
The CVIA Special Issue on Heart Failure has been Guest Edited by Juan M. Aranda, Jr. of the University of Florida and brings together contributions from leading cardiologists from the United States, China and Europe.

CVIA publishes focused articles and original clinical research that explore novel developments in cardiovascular disease, effective control and rehabilitation in cardiovascular disease, and promote cardiovascular innovations and applications for the betterment of public health globally. The journal publishes basic research that has clinical applicability in order to promote timely communication of the latest insights relating to coronary artery disease, heart failure, hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia, and prevention of cardiovascular disease with a heavy emphasis on risk factor modification.
As part of its mandate to help bring interesting work and knowledge from around the world to a wider audience, CVIA will actively support authors through open access publishing and through waiving author fees in its first years. Also, publication support for authors whose first language is not English will be offered in areas such as manuscript development, English language editing and artwork assistance.
