Canadian Cardiovascular Society

The idea of creating a cardiology journal first surfaced in the early 1960s. The vision came to life when the premiere issue of the Canadian Journal of Cardiology (CJC) was published in January 1985. In 1991, the CJC became the official journal of the CCS. Dr. Robert Beamish was first Editor-in-Chief, followed by Dr. Eldon Smith. In 2011, the CCS purchased the journal. Dr. Stanley Nattel was Editor-in-Chief at the time — a position he still proudly holds. Today, the CJC is a widely read and respected journal with an Impact Factor that has exceeded 5.0 since 2019. Building on this success, the CCS expanded its family of publications. It now includes CJC Open and, in early 2022, will launch its third publication, CJC Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease.
