Submit Your Manuscript
Go to Editorial Manager
Submissions are examined by the editors, who decide whether to refer the manuscript for external peer review. After initial screening, manuscripts that do not receive a priority sufficient for publication will be returned to the author.
The editors will not respond to presubmission inquiries on Original Research articles. Authors should submit these through Editorial Manager for formal peer review.
Preparing Your Submission
Manuscripts must comply with the appropriate Article Type, and other submission files (diagnostic images, motion images, and graphs) must meet quality standards (see Technical Requirements).
Submissions must include all the files relevant to the article. If the submission does not pass the technical check, it will be returned to the author. This delays the review process.
Detailed instructions for preparing all submission files are in the Technical Requirements.
Use the appropriate preformatted template for your article type. Each includes tips for content and organization.
The manuscript document must be organized as follows:
The Texas Heart Institute Journal follows the guidelines for best practices in scientific publication.
The list of authors and their order should be determined before submission. Any changes will be carefully examined.

Note: Contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be acknowledged.
Protection of Human and Animal Subjects
