JSCAI Approved for Indexing in PubMed Central: A Milestone for Interventional Cardiology Research | SCAI

WASHINGTON–The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions (SCAI) is pleased to announce that its official journal, JSCAI, has been approved for indexing in PubMed Central, a database of biomedical literature maintained by the National Library of Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health. PubMed indexing elevates the visibility and impact of JSCAI, as articles are more easily accessible and better positioned for more frequent citations. The repository also provides a stable and permanent archive for articles. 

"This accomplishment is a testament to JSCAI’s high-quality content and its importance to the interventional cardiology community. Indexing will enhance the discoverability and citation of cutting-edge research and clinical practice published in JSCAI, and it will also attract more submissions from authors around the world," said Alexandra J. Lansky, MD, MSCAI, founding editor-in-chief of JSCAI and professor of medicine and director of Heart and Vascular clinical research at the Yale School of Medicine. “I would like to thank our editors, peer reviewers, and authors who have contributed to this achievement, as well as our publishing partner, Elsevier. We look forward to continuing to grow JSCAI and serve the field.” 

Since its launch in 2022, JSCAI has become an essential resource for the interventional cardiology community. The Journal publishes original research, review articles, case reports, and editorials on topics such as coronary, peripheral, structural, and congenital heart disease interventions. 

“This is a significant milestone for JSCAI, its contributors, SCAI members, and the entire interventional cardiology field. As a technical and procedure-based subspecialty, sharing experience is crucial for learning and enhancing patient outcomes. The indexing in PubMed Central reflects our collective dedication as a society to the exchange and dissemination of high-quality science and practical expertise in interventional cardiology,” said SCAI President James B. Hermiller, MD, MSCAI

Over its brief history, JSCAI has launched initiatives unique to its publishing peers. From the journal's first issue, JSCAI has regularly posted the “Conversations in Interventional Cardiology” video series, which allows editors and authors to highlight important research and discuss the clinical implications in a panel format. JSCAI regularly publishes a Pearls in Hemodynamics column and numerous high-quality case studies. Later this year, JSCAI will publish its second special issue on unique topics within the field. 

“In the future, we look forward to continuing and growing our Conversations series as well as extending JSCAI content to expand our reach and make it more easily accessible to the busy practicing clinician,” Lansky said. “We will continue to emphasize interactions between early career and master clinicians, and we will continue to address disparities in care and be a platform to introduce novel techniques and devices.”
