Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the AHA Journals’ Websites and Use on Your Devices

In the fall of 2016, AHA introduced responsive web design on all 12 journals’ websites launching a new digital experience for readers and the sites were further enhanced in July of 2018:
  • Content flows seamlessly across all devices – no app required.
    All AHA journals’ sites adjust to any screen size for a user-friendly reading experience on any of your personal devices – from your desktop computer to your smartphone and tablet – and no matter your operating system – iOS, Android, or Windows.
  • The new look is modern and simple.
    The new tabbed menu on the desktop version or drop down on your mobile and tablet devices makes navigation easier. The sites also include a rotating carrousel of images at the top of the page to highlight important news and research.
  • Research related to topics that interest you are easier to discover.
    All articles are tagged with key words that will automatically populate articles related to a particular topic when you click the keyword.
  • Special features and content collections are easier to find.
    Using the main navigation menu you can browse “Features” to find unique content, videos, and more for each AHA Journal.

I have an iPhone or Android or Windows phone and/or tablet. Does anything change for me?

No. If you have an iPhone, or Android or Windows phone or tablet, you will continue to access the AHA Journals via your preferred mobile web browser and will enjoy the ease and functionality of the site design.

We recommend you go to your preferred browser and bookmark or each individual journal sites for quick access:

I have an iPad®. Does anything change for me?

Yes. In response to changing user preferences and increased functionality of the AHA journals’ website design, content published via the AHA journals’ iPad® apps has been or will be discontinued. But, you can continue to read the AHA journals via Safari or your preferred mobile web browser.

Past issues and content you’ve downloaded on the app will continue to be available, as long as your AHA membership or personal subscription is active, but nothing new will be published beyond the dates listed above.

For offline reading, you will have to download individual articles and save them in apps like iBooks or Kindle. It is not possible to download complete journal issues at this time.

We realize AHA Journals’ users may be disappointed to find they can no longer access new content on the app, and we want you to know that we carefully considered the decision to discontinue app publication. User preferences have changed since journal apps were first launched and the change to responsive web design will help us innovate in all digital environments faster, ensuring you have access to the highest quality cardiovascular and cerebrovascular research whenever and where ever you need it.
