JCA aims to publish clinical, translational, and basic science discoveries that pertain to all aspects of aging and cardiovascular disease. All aspects of basic and clinical sciences relating to aging in the context of cardiovascular disease are considered to be within the scope of the journal. Examples include clinical trials, diet, treatment, genetics, epigenetics, genomics, stem cells, immunology, inflammation, cell cycle regulation, senescence, signaling pathways, and pharmacology, among others. The primary focus of the journal is to publish original research articles that provide novel insights into cardiovascular aging. Studies confirming and validating previous findings, whenever providing unequivocal findings, are also within the scope of the journal.
