General Information

Advances in Pulmonary Hypertension: Official Journal of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) is a quarterly publication directed by an editorial board of renowned pulmonary hypertension (PH) experts with oversight by PHA’s Scientific Leadership Council. The mission of Advances in PH is to assist physicians in their clinical decision-making by informing them of important trends affecting their practice and providing an analysis of the impact of new findings and current information in the peer-reviewed literature. Each article is reviewed and approved by members of the Editorial Advisory Board.
While most articles are invited by the editorial board, the following submissions will be considered for publication:
  • Reviews that summarize and synthesize peer-reviewed literature to date on relevant topics
  • Letters to the Editor
  • Clinical case studies
Submitted manuscripts are reviewed by the editorial board and other experts in the field. Acceptance of manuscripts is determined by factors such as quality, relevance, and perceived value to clinical decision-making.
