In 2016, JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology completed its first full year of publication. More than 100 new research papers, state-of-the-art reviews, and editorials were published, in addition to an ongoing series of Images in Electrophysiology and Editor’s Pages. The year included 6 focus issues on atrial fibrillation ablation, channelopathies, cardiac resynchronization, ventricular arrhythmias in structural heart disease, atrial fibrillation, and drugs and the QT interval. The Journal has greatly benefited from the participation of the international electrophysiology community, with 53% of submissions coming from outside the United States. Past and current issue content, articles ahead of print, and other features are now available on a new website (www.jacc-electrophysiology.org).
I extend my personal gratitude and admiration for the efforts of a talented and engaged editorial board: Deputy Editor Jag Singh and Associate Editors James Daubert, Sanjiv Narayan, Jeanne Poole, Atul Verma, and Katja Zeppenfeld. I also wish to express appreciation and acknowledge the contributions of our Guest Editors, including Sam Asirvatham, Angelo Aurrechio, John Camm, Greg Feld, Michael Gold, Gerhard Hindricks, Jon Kalman, Frank Marchlinski, Eric Prystowsky, and Jeremy Ruskin. The Journal has also benefited from the input and active involvement of our Editorial Advisors, listed on the front pages of this issue. We are greatly indebted to the >500 reviewers who have helped shape and assure the high quality of science and clinical impact of contributions appearing in JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology since its inception. Finally, we are grateful for the continuing support of the physician leadership of the JACC family of journals and the outstanding work of a talented editorial staff, including managing editors Maggie Donnelly and Courtney Stuntz.
Looking forward, beginning in 2017, and accommodating the expanding interest and engagement of both readers and investigators, the Journal will be published on a monthly basis. Also in 2017, Journal content, both past and future, will be available on PubMed. Over the coming year, in addition to the expansion of Journal content, we look forward to continuing our collaboration with readers and contributors to best meet their needs and interests. We welcome your feedback.
