Contact: Amy Murphy, firstname.lastname@example.org, 202-375-6476(Washington, D.C.) - The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) announce an exciting partnership that will offer BCS members convenient, comprehensive cardiovascular information online. The ACC-BCS partnership provides BCS members access to Cardiosource and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) Online.
Cardiosource is the ACC’s online portal for cardiovascular news, information and education. Users can access Clinical Collections, which consolidate a variety of relevant information on a given cardiovascular topic, or Expert Opinions on hot controversies from the thought leaders in cardiovascular medicine. Cardiosource provides access to key textbooks, a massive database of images, case studies, trials, clinical tools and more.
“This partnership helps to fulfill one of the ACC’s most critical goals — to disseminate cardiovascular science to practitioners worldwide and help them turn that science into practice,” said Fred Bove, M.D., F.A.C.C., editor in chief of Cardiosource.
Through this collaboration, BCS members are now able to access Cardiosource via the BCS Web site, www.bcs.com. Members will have the same outstanding member access to Cardiosource that ACC members enjoy. BCS members will also benefit from full-text, searchable access to both Heart Online, the official journal of the British Cardiovascular Society, as well as JACC, through the Cardiosource site. They’ll also receive a weekly e-newsletter update from Cardiosource highlighting the latest news and information.
“Convenient online access to clinical trials, guidelines, expert opinion, and cardiovascular news is extremely valuable,” said BCS President, Dr Nicholas Brooks. “Cardiosource provides this to our members wherever there are internet facilities.”
