From the Editor-in-Chief
We approach our venture in publishing with tremendous energy and respect. At the same time, we want the publishing process to be engaging – even fun! To that end, we are leveraging the idea of whimsical depictions of the word "Google" on the Google.com website. We have launched the “Circulation doodle", a creative depiction of the word Circulation based on a theme that changes monthly. We invite you to submit your images, and the chosen doodle will be featured on the journal cover and on our website.
Submitting a Doodle is easy!
Step 1: Take a look at our themes. For each monthly theme, we take submissions one month in advance.
Step 2: Send us a picture or a description of your idea! It can come in any form – if you are selected, you’ll work with our artist to bring your idea to life. Just email us with your ideas at email@example.com.
Doodle Themes for 2017 and 2018:
Not an artist? You can still submit an idea for a monthly theme. We are looking for ideas for December 2017 onwards.
DOODLE HALL OF FAME
July 2018: This month's doodle commemorates the July 1960 article by Kouwenhoven et al, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, which was the first report of closed-chest cardiac massage. Among 20 patients, there was an overall permanent survival rate of 70%. According to the authors, "Anyone, anywhere, can now initiate cardiac resuscitative procedures. All that is needed are two hands." (Kouwenhoven WB, Jude JR, Knickerbocker GG. Closed-chest cardiac massage. JAMA. 1960 Jul 9;173:1064-7).
