American Journal of Cardiology

The American Journal of Cardiology is a peer-reviewed scientific journal in the field of cardiology and general cardiovascular disease. It is independent from the American College of Cardiology.

The journal's editor-in-chief is William C. Roberts, MD. It is published 24 times per year. The journal prides itself on having one of the shortest lags between acceptance and publication in the field of cardiology: less than 5 months. It is situated in the second half of the top 20 cardiovascular disease journals ranked by impact factor. Its impact factor in 2007 was 3.603.

It supersedes the Transactions of the American College of Cardiology which was published from 1951 to 1957 and the Bulletin of the American College of Cardiology, but it should not be confused with the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
