Call for Papers: Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Aging – New Mechanisms and Insights
Guest Editors Drs. Edward Lakatta and Zoltan Ungvari and the Editors of AJP-Heart and Circulatory Physiology invite submission of original research articles related to aging and cardiovascular physiology in health and disease. Recent research using a variety of experimental approaches has provided important and unexpected insights into aging-induced changes in cardiac and vascular function. We welcome submission of studies using a variety of experimental approaches, from non-mammalian or cell based systems to studies in humans in health and disease. We are especially interested in manuscripts addressing the relationship between the cerebrovasculature and age-related neurological disorders (including Alzheimer’s disease and vascular cognitive impairment), concurrent age-associated changes in the heart and arterial tree and the establishment of links between traditional physiologic measures of CV aging and longevity-associated molecular signaling, e.g. links between AngII signaling and SIRT-1, AMPK, PPARs and IGF. All manuscripts accepted from this Call for Papers will be included in a unique online article collection to further highlight this important topic. The article collection will also include specially commissioned Review articles.
All manuscripts should be submitted online here: http://ajpheart.msubmit.net/cgi-bin/main.plex
During the online submission process, under the "Keywords & Special Sections" tab, please use the "Category" drop-down menu and select “Aging and Cardiovascular Function – New Mechanisms and Insights."
Manuscripts will undergo normal peer review as they are received. Accepted manuscripts will be published online as they are accepted. Articles published from this Call for Papers will be highlighted with a special “Call for Papers” banner on the article PDF, as well as included in the Aging and Cardiovascular Function – New Mechanisms and Insights online article collection at time of publication.
Manuscripts can be submitted anytime but must be submitted by January 15, 2014 to be eligible for inclusion in this Call for Papers. If you have any questions please contact Kara Hansell Keehan, Executive Editor, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
