Circulation’s Newest Section: Expert Opinions
Dr Dean Kereiakes is the Section Editor for Circulation’s newest section, Expert Opinions, effective September 1, 2002. By way of a platform designed for Expert Opinions, advice and opinions will be solicited from internationally recognized thought-leaders concerning topics in cardiovascular medicine that are of interest to the cardiovascular clinician. In addition, health-care policy and patient care issues will be examined to improve clinical care and resource utilization. Expert Opinions will provide timely, useful advice on the recognition and management of important cardiovascular problems and will expand the clinically relevant format of Circulation. The new section will be available in print and via a radio button on the home page of CirculationOnline.
Circulation’s Ongoing New Features: Clinician Update and The Cardiology Patient Page
Dr Elliott Antman is Section Editor for two new sections that were introduced in the Online version of Circulation in May 2001. The sections are available as a collection through radio buttons on the home page of Circulation Online, and now each new article is published in the print journal. We are pleased to offer the new sections as a review for the clinician and as a resource for the patient.
Rapid Track for Review and Publication

If an author believes his/her work meets the criteria for the Rapid Track consideration as stated in our Instructions to Authors, the author should request Rapid Track consideration in the submission letter that accompanies the manuscript.
