Exploration of Cardiology (EC) is a new open-access journal from Open Exploration publisher. The journal aims to provide, at this moment free of charge, an open forum for scholarly research on a range of topics. There are many good cardiology journals, with excellent editors, and still, one more journal may have a unique role in promoting research and debate in the new era of environmental cardiology and the obligatory quest for economic, legal, and environmental sustainability of cardiology practice. Healthcare money shortage and energy crisis, the pandemic pressure, climate change, and increasing evidence of environmental roots of cardiovascular disease pose new challenges to clinical cardiologists, researchers, and professional societies. Based on these principles, the EC will place a special emphasis on all techniques, methods, and practices promoting the development of ‘green’ (climate-neutral) and ‘blue’ (sustainable) cardiology. EC will publish Original Articles, Reviews, Protocols, Commentaries, Perspectives, and Editorials, and will also regularly publish special exploration issues to highlight advances at the cutting edge of research. I invite you to consider publishing your next paper with us and help us put EC in a prominent place in the cardiovascular editorial domains. As editor-in-Chief, I take a commitment to respecting the Author’s rights to fast and fair review and to do this in the best possible way with an inner team of associate editors who will work to serve our submitting authors, who are the real strength of any journal.
