Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Use of high-throughput genetic tools for massively parallel sequencing has revolutionized genetic diagnostic of inherited arrhythmogenic syndromes. The identification of deleterious alterations in families affected by an inherited disease associated with sudden cardiac death is crucial for diagnosis of clinically affected but also for the early identification of relatives carrying the genetic alteration and, therefore, at risk for lethal arrhythmia. One of the main current challenges is data analysis and its genotype–phenotype interpretation in order to perform a useful clinical translation. Original studies as well as reviews and case reports will help to unravel genetic basis, improving clinical diagnosis, genetic counselling, and adoption of preventive therapeutic measures in inherited arrhythmogenic syndromes associated with sudden cardiac death.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cardiogenetics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
