"2019 has been another great year for Pulmonary Circulation. We continue to see increasing numbers of articles submitted and now receive many good quality papers. We have been able to raise the bar for acceptance and we are pleased to say that it is now becoming more difficult to get published in Pulmonary Circulation!"

Our research platform is the world.

Through worldwide collaboration, we can begin to answer the question of a global disease.
