The Cardiovascular Metabolism section welcomes papers concerned with unravelling the homeostatic and pathological roles of metabolic processes in the cardiovascular system and in the development of cardiovascular diseases. Metabolic processes and their regulatory mechanisms are tightly and intricately linked to many other biological processes and mechanisms at the cell, tissue and systemic levels. The broad impact of obesity on cardiovascular disease exemplifies the interconnection between the cardiovascular and metabolic systems. Our goal is to accelerate studies that aim to unravel the biological mechanisms at the interface of multiple disciplines, including cardiovascular and metabolic fields and related fields, such as immunology.
The section will consider papers that examine the roles of cellular metabolic networks and systemic metabolism in cardiovascular homeostasis and disease. Consideration will be given to basic and translational research studies focusing on metabolism at all levels as long as they foster new understanding of pathogenic mechanisms or novel therapeutic approaches relevant to human cardiovascular disease: cellular and molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology and endocrinology.

PMCID: coming soon for all published articles
Cardiovascular Metabolism welcomes submissions of the following article types: Case Report, Clinical Study Protocol, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Cardiovascular Metabolism, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Cardiovascular Metabolism will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Cardiovascular Medicine.
