Open Access Publication and Creative Commons Licensing

This is an open access journal, and articles are distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 License, which allows others to remix, tweak, and build upon the work non-commercially, as long as appropriate credit is given and the new creations are licensed under the identical terms.

Digital Archiving

Wolters Kluwer Medknow provides for long-term digital preservation through two primary partnerships, Portico and CLOCKSS.

Portico is a leading digital preservation service worldwide. The content is preserved as an archival version and is not publically accessible via Portico, but is provided when required under specific conditions, such as discontinuation of the collection or catastrophic failure of the website.

CLOCKSS will enable any library to maintain their own archive of content from Wolters Kluwer Medknow and other publishers, with minimal technical effort and using cheaply available hardware.

Ahead of Print policy

Articles published online under the Ahead of Print model are considered published and can be cited and quoted using the DOI as the reference source. Wolters Kluwer Medknow has a policy that changes will not be made after publication of an article without following accepted procedures for making corrections to the scientific record.


While advertisements are crucial to this journal to be able to keep all content free for everyone, ethical considerations are in place to ensure the integrity of the journal and its content:

  • "Pop-up" and "banner" ads appear on a random, rotating basis. The advertiser has no control or input over the pages where their ads appear.
  • The Editorial Board has full and final approval over the content of all advertisements.
  • Advertisers will never be shown any manuscripts or other content prior to publication.

  Scope of the journal

Some subjects of interest to the editorial board are as follows. This list should not be taken to be comprehensive. It is intended merely a rough guide to the advisability of submission according to content: 1) bio-behavioral connections between cardiovascular disease, depression, anxiety, rage, and other mental states; 2) the psychological manifestations of cardiovascular disease; 3) the cardiovascular manifestations of mental disorders;  4) the relevance of psychological risk factors in the development of further disease, such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and sleep disorders; 5) drug interactions in cardiovascular and psychiatric disease; 6) emotional distress secondary to cardiac arrest and cardioverter-defibrillator implantation; and 7) the clinical outcomes and impacts of psychological intervention on cardiovascular diseases.
