The Journal of Innovations in Cardiac Rhythm Management serves a unique function within the electrophysiology industry. As a monthly publication devoted to exploring the latest developments impacting the field of cardiac arrhythmia management, including advancements in device therapy and evolutions within electrophysiology, it brings together clinicians committed to the production and analysis of electrophysiology. Drawing on specific interests occurring in the field, we welcome real-world clinical experiences around surrounding topics affecting physicians in electrophysiology. Structured around thematic ideas, issues of the Journal of Innovations in Cardiac Rhythm Management can be developed around central themes as to invite guest editors working in consultation with the editorial board.

The authors report no conflicts of interest for the published content.

Thematic Issues and Sections

While several quality journals exist for research in electrophysiology, the Journal of Innovations in Cardiac Rhythm Management has set itself apart by providing a forum for both high caliber research in electrophysiology and in education. The journal will publish new thematic issues or thematic sections which depend on specific topics occurring within the industry. Further, this will also offer excellent opportunities for physicians to contribute manuscripts that showcase their research, from basic/translational to clinical research, as well technical procedural proficiency. These thematic issues or thematic sections will unquestionably draw talented contributors from around the world.

The prompt for these thematic issues and thematic sections came from the recent growth of some areas, and in some cases providing a forum for discussing potential controversies. The result is a comprehensive compendium of reviews and research that should give the reader in one place a summary, an update, and the real-world clinical experiences into the ongoing and future studies in these important areas of how these advancements accomplish the goal of finding its targets, and what controversies or disruptions these have on the industry.

There are key developments of technologically advanced electrophysiology devices, rapid growth in aging population with high risk of target diseases, increasing incidence of arrhythmia cases across the globe, growing focus of key market players to expand their geographic presence, and increasing demand of catheter ablation procedures. Thematic issues and thematic sections should focus on atrial fibrillation, ventricular fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, atrial tachycardia, atrial flutter and atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia.

Call for Action

We would like to invite proposals for collections of related manuscripts to be considered for publication as either a thematic issue or thematic section. These suggested topics have been developed as guidepoints:

  • Advancements in device therapy
  • Gender differences in atrial fibrillation
  • Real-world clinical experiences
  • Evolutions within electrophysiology
  • Current dynamics in AF ablation
  • Novel Oral Anticoagulant Therapy
  • Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation

Proposals should include a description of the theme and how it fits within the aims and scope. Inquiries and proposals should be submitted to the editorial office at E-mail: Once a proposal for a topic is accepted, we can work with the Guest Editor.

Papers submitted will be evaluated by the same strict criteria as regular contributed submissions. Papers will only be published if they clearly merit publication on the basis of their originality and overall importance of results. An invitation to submit a paper to a thematic issue does not imply automatic acceptance for publication. Peer review of thematic issue papers must be conducted by reviewers who are completely independent of the submissions. Reviewers cannot be selected from the list of authors. The journal expects critical evaluations by independent experts.
