AHA Journals Subject Terms

When preparing your manuscript for submission, please select from the following list those terms that most closely describe the broad subject area of your manuscript. Combined, the selected Subject Terms should provide a general overview of your manuscript that is also specific enough to be useful to readers. If accepted for publication, your article will be included in and searchable across AHA Journal Collections and included in the appropriate Professional Heart Daily Community. The intention of this list is to broaden the reach of your manuscript and help researchers find relevant, related content. Subject Terms are grouped by category for convenience.
