From the Editor:
September 1, 2018
Dear SCVP Member
I want to make you aware of two recent significant developments for our journal, Cardiovascular Pathology. In September, CVP is publishing our first ever special issue devoted to a compilation of all of the consensus documents that have been published in CVP. This is a result of the initiative of our Editorial Board member, Dr. Michael Seidman, and the facilitation by our Elsevier publisher, Jason Winkler. The special issue with the consensus documents is available at https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/cardiovascular-pathology/special-issue/10W77NHMBBL. Click on the link to Special Issues. The intent of this special issue is to promulgate the work of our consensus groups so that pathologists from diverse backgrounds and with varying experience can readily find and utilize the material in the current and future consensus statements.
Elsevier is starting a new initiative for Cardiovascular Pathology called Data In Brief. At the end of September, CVP will be giving authors the opportunity to co-submit a data article alongside their research article. This data article is later published in the journal Data in Brief. Details about this innovative initiative from Elsevier are provided in the Attachment. I think Data In Brief will provide an added incentive for authors to submit their work for publication in Cardiovascular Pathology.
I am very excited about these two developments which I think will enhance the status of our journal. I welcome your comments and input regarding our Special Issue and Data In Brief.
