In order to move with the times, the Interactive CardioVascular and Thoracic Surgery (ICVTS) journal will be online only from July 2018. Most scholars already use electronic devices (laptop, tablet and/or smartphone) to read news from around the globe, to find out about the latest academic research and to share this information as well as their own work with their peers. That’s why EACTS decide to change the printed to the online version. The new version will provide market-leading functionality to all users; none of which can be offered in the print environment.
– easily search and quickly find specific articles one is interested in
– enlarge images to view more details
– play videos
– gain access to the raw data of a study, which in the medical area is increasingly requested.
ICVTS will remain free of article processing charges (APCs) for the authors, with free access for all readers. All articles will still be published in monthly issues and each article will also include a downloadable PDF for those who prefer to have something in their hands and read on paper.
For all the people who want to get a notification about new articles, please sign here via your magazine account.
