About us

Radcliffe Cardiology

Radcliffe Cardiology is an innovative media and publishing company that aims to assist in the continuous education of physicians within the cardiology fraternity, generating a range of clinical content through collaboration with leading cardiologists from around the globe.

Providing a free access platform for peer-reviewed content from industry-leading review journals Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Review (AER), Cardiac Failure Review (CFR)European Cardiology Review (ECR), Interventional Cardiology Review (ICR) and US Cardiology Review (USC) alongside other digital and multimedia content– radcliffecardiology.com aims to support physicians, clinicians and leading industry professionals in continuously developing their knowledge, effectiveness and productivity.

Radcliffe Cardiology also has a dedicated eLearning platform, RC Academy, which uses innovative platforms for digital webinars, live case broadcasting and video round table discussions which help our community of 58,000 cardiologists keep up-to-date with the latest opinion, guidance and innovation in cardiovascular medicine.

Our journals are tri or bi-annual and comprise review articles, editorials, expert opinion pieces and in some cases meta-analyses. To ensure accuracy of published content within our journals, all articles are subject to double-blind peer review. Reviewers are selected on the basis of their clinical expertise, and are recognised authorities within the field. Following review, a reviewer either advises that an article is accepted without revision, or that either minor or major revisions are required to ensure an article presents a balanced, accurate and clinically-robust overview of the topic in question. An article may be rejected outright if it is deemed structurally flawed. Any revisions requested by the review are communicated to the author, and once incorporated, the article is sent to the journal’s Editor-in-Chief for secondary review. Where there are any points of contention between author and primary reviewer, the Editor-in-Chief will adjudicate. An article is only accepted for publication following approval by the Editor-in-Chief.

Each of Radcliffe Cardiology’s journals are supported by a Peer Review Board of over 100 leading physicians and healthcare professionals from across the cardiology fraternity. Comprehensive bibliographies for each article mean that all issues are informative and can be used as valuable reference tools.

Radcliffe Cardiology is an independent publisher and limited company. We are not affiliated or an agent of the Oxford Heart Centre, John Radcliffe Hospital or Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust group.
