Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, welcomes Professor Paolo G. Camici, MD, as the new Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Cardiology ('IJC'), a leading publication in the field of cardiac and cardiovascular systems.
Launched in 1981, IJC is a global journal of cardiology, cardio-metabolic and vascular sciences. IJC publishes articles of major scientific importance and clinical relevance, covering clinical observations and interventions, experimental studies and theoretical concepts.
Professor Camici will take over from Professor Andrew J.S. Coats (Joint Academic Vice-President, Monash University, Australia and University of Warwick, United Kingdom) on September 1, 2016. Having worked for many years in prestigious universities and hospitals both in the UK and Italy, with a wealth of experience as Consultant, Clinician Scientist, Program Director, Lecturer, Examiner, Society Fellow, Working Group Chairman and member of multiple Editorial Boards, Professor Camici's current position is Professor of Cardiology and Consultant Cardiologist at the Vita-Salute University San Raffaele, in Milan, Italy. He is also Director of the University's Cardiology Training program.
"The goal of this new team is to create a unique forum for international investigators that can offer an exciting alternative to the main journals of the European and American Cardiology Societies," commented Professor Camici. "In addition to original papers, we are launching a new range of new manuscript types, including Consensus and Position Papers, Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses and Brief Reports."
Koos Admiraal, Executive Publisher at Elsevier, added, "We are fully confident that Professor Camici will continue the excellent work carried out by Professor Coats over nearly two decades, and that the International Journal of Cardiology will continue to prosper as one of the world's foremost publications in the field. We offer our sincere thanks to the outgoing Editor-in-Chief as we welcome Professor Camici to this exciting new role."
