The International Society for Heart Research is the only truly global organisation supporting and promoting the interests of cardiovascular research scientists worldwide. It was set up in 1968, and its community is made up of over 3,000 members in 7 international Sections: Australasian, Chinese, European, Indian, Japanese, Latin American and North American. The mission of the ISHR is to promote the discovery and dissemination of knowledge in the cardiovascular sciences. The society runs two journals, the established Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology (JMCC), with a current impact factor of 5.763, and a new open access journal JMCC Plus. Dr Pavlovic has recently taken over as Editor-in-Chief of JMCC Plus from Professor Rong Tian, University of Washington, US.
