New EP Journal Premiers

Seems the "Journal Wars" are heating up between the Heart Rhythm Society (which publishes HeartRhythm) and the American Heart Association:
Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology is the first of the new "Circulation portfolio" of journals, designed to meet the growing demand for tightly focused information in areas at the cutting edge of cardiology. Circulation: Heart Failure will be the second journal to premier in coming weeks. The remaining four titles - Circulation: Cardiovascular Genetics; Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging; Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes (Eds note: Can you say CMS and JCAHO??); and Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions - are scheduled for launch later in 2008.

Each bimonthly issue of Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology and the other new journals will be available in both print and online formats. The journal Web site, will also present "Publish Ahead of Print" articles and other online features.
William Stevenson, MD, director of the clinical cardiac electrophysiology program at Brigham and Women's Hospital and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, will serve as editor of the AHA's new EP journal.

I look forward to seeing the new issue, but damn, it seems there's just too many journals to keep up with these days!

Can you say "information overload?"
