World-class research. Ultimate impact.
More on impact ›
The section publishes significant experimental research articles and clinical studies on all aspects related to pediatric cardiology. Particularly, papers with the following focus will be considered: 1) genetics; 2) experimental research; 3) fetal diagnosis; 4) morphology; 5) structure, metabolism and physiology; 6) non-invasive diagnostic techniques; 7) invasive diagnostic techniques; 8) interventional cardiology; 9) cardiac dysrhythmias / electrophysiology; 10) cardiac surgery; 11) intensive care management; 12) early / late outcomes; 13) pulmonary hypertension/heart transplant / mechanical assistance and 14) neurodevelopment / psycho-social aspects. While the scope of Pediatric Cardiology is primarily centred on clinical studies, experimental research projects highlighting the pathophysiology of diseases or focusing on translational aspects are also appreciated. Basic and clinical research will be stimulated by intensifying collaboration and knowledge exchange between the subspecialties of pediatric cardiology and also the broader field of pediatrics. The goal of this section is to give a sustained commitment to education and continuous improvement of knowledge across the span of pediatric cardiology.

Pediatric Cardiology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Case Report, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Study Protocol, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Pediatric Cardiology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Pediatric Cardiology 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 Pediatrics and Cardiovascular Medicine.
