Fifteen years ago, professors Alexander Tenenbaum and Enrique Fisman conceived the idea of creating a scientific journal specifically dedicated to exploring the intersection of diabetes and heart disease. Following their initiative, the journal Cardiovascular Diabetology was launched in April 2002.
Since then, Cardiovascular Diabetology has been growing rapidly, and fortunately became a prestigious international journal that has published more than 1250 scientific articles - some of them representing a major breakthrough in their particular fields. The journal is privileged to have a high-status Editorial Board, a rigorous peer review policy, a multidisciplinary audience, high visibility, and ample global exposure.
April 2002 may also be considered as the official "birthday" of a novel medical area - cardiovascular diabetology - a discipline specifically dedicated to fight against cardio-diabetes and metabolism-related cardiovascular diseases. On this occasion, Cardiovascular Diabetology would like to express its gratitude to the worldwide recognized scientists on its Editorial Board, the authors, the publisher’s staff, the reviewers and the readership for their continuous backing and assistance.
We are pleased to present the most influential manuscripts in cardiovascular diabetology published over our 15 year history and we look forward to the prolific studies the next 15 years will bring. We believe that the rapid progress of cardiovascular diabetology will lead to even more impressive achievements in both basic and clinical science, which will be reflected in improved public health.
The future looks encouraging.
