In November 2014, JAMA will publish a theme issue on cardiovascular disease, and this will mark the fourth year the theme issue will coincide with the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions.13 In this issue, we hope to include articles about cardiovascular disease that are relevant to the broad readership of JAMA.

We will consider any manuscript that addresses cardiovascular disease in humans. This runs the gamut from first in human investigations to multicenter randomized clinical trials to population-based clinical, genetic, or biomarker epidemiological investigations. Given that JAMA also is interested in translating science into practice, we also encourage submission of studies that examine health care quality, safety, and efficiency; implementation evaluations; and other relevant health policy issues. With the timing of this theme issue, we are especially interested in late-breaking research, particularly late-breaking randomized clinical trials that will be presented at the American Heart Association meeting. We encourage authors who are involved with such studies to contact us as early as possible so that we can discuss our interest in the trial and coordinate timing for submission of the manuscript with the goal of simultaneous publication at the time of the scientific presentation. We also are interested in receiving scholarly, thought-provoking Viewpoints on important and timely clinical and policy topics in cardiovascular medicine.

Authors who are interested in submitting a manuscript for this theme issue should indicate this on the cover letter accompanying the manuscript. Manuscripts submitted before August 16, 2014, will have the best chance of consideration for the theme issue. Exception to this submission guideline can be made for late-breaking randomized clinical trials if needed.

If authors have any questions about this theme issue or any other cardiovascular-related JAMA submission issues, please feel free to contact us. Authors should consult the JAMA Instructions for Authors4 for guidelines on manuscript submission and preparation.

We look forward to receiving your manuscripts for the 2014 cardiovascular disease theme issue of JAMA.
