WHO WE ARE
Barcaray International Publishing is run by academics for academics, bringing the best of modern publishing to cardiology. Our first journal (ICFJ) was launched in 2013.
We build on decades of experience in publishing, editing and creating research and have served in senior commercial and academic roles in a number of disciplines.
Our journal is led by expert Co-Editors-in-Chief
We believe in an efficient publishing experience for each and every user: the researcher, the editor, the reviewer, the reader and the consumer. We are large enough to publish the best research findings in an efficient and timely manner, and small enough to care. We deliver efficient accurate and insightful peer-review, rapid publication and top-quality author support.
We are global in reach and international in outlook, with colleagues, contributors, staff and offices in UK, Europe, Australia, Hong Kong, Dubai and the Americas.
