As you know, cardiac rhythm disorders, i.e., arrhythmias, are a permanent focus of experimental and clinical cardiologists. This is because of high impact on mortality and morbidity worldwide, despite the progress of treatment in the last decades. Both invasive and non-invasive approaches are still not efficient enough to prevent the occurrence and/or recurrence of cardiac arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation (AF) and ventricular fibrillation (VF). AF is most frequent arrhythmia, whose incidence increases along with the high risk of stroke. VF is often the cause of sudden cardiac death and sometimes even in patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator. Taken together, it is challenging to address this topic on both bench and bedside molecular levels to understand better arrhythmogenesis, since it is conditio sine qua non to discover novel targets and approaches to fight cardiac arrhythmias.
This Special Issue “Progress in Understanding of Cardiac Arrhythmia Mechanisms and Antiarrhythmic Targets” will cover a selection of recent research topics and updated review articles based on the molecular and cellular view on cardiac arrhythmias and their possible prevention.

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 papers will be 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
