The MR – CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES journal is well-known to several generations of Bulgarian physicians. It is issued for 49 years so far as a specialized research medical journal for original research developments: articles, case studies, reviews; however, it publishes also concise presentations of foreign materials presenting news in this area of medical science. The journal bears a strictly scientific character. The requirements for authors follow the standards for Bulgarian periodicals in the field of medical research. The Editorial Board of the journal is made up of eminent Bulgarian cardiologists. Any material submitted for publication in the MR – CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES journal is reviewed. The ambition of the Editorial Board and of the publisher is to offer Bulgarian cardiologists a regularly issued authoritative journal meeting the standards of university medicine.
The thematic range of the journal includes materials in the field of cardiology – internal diseases, pediatric cardiology, thoracic surgery, cardiosurgery, VASCULAR SURGERY and angiology. The journal has been included with an identification code (ISSN) into an international system for registration of periodicals. The authors are required to enclose an English summary and keywords with every article; this makes possible a future incorporation of the journal into foreign information systems of reference (EMBASE/Excerpta Medica, Medline, etc.). The site of the journal provides free Internet access to the contents of printed issues, summaries of articles, requirements for the authors and other information on the journal through the web page of the Central Medical Library.
