From the Editor:
November/December 2012 Issue (Volume 21, Number 6)
The content of the November-December 2012 issue of Cardiovascular Pathology again provides an interesting assembly of original articles on human cardiovascular disease and experimental studies as well as some pertinent clinical case reports, summarized as follows:
I recently attended a very informative Editors' Conference sponsored by our publisher, Elsevier. Among other things I learned a lot about metrics used to evaluate journals, including the Impact Factor. I prepared a white paper on the topic for the Editorial Board which I want to now share with the members of the Society. This document is found here. Hopefully it will give you some insight into the standing of Cardiovascular Pathology among pathology specialty journals, which in my opinion is quite good.
