Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

 

Policy statement – Human and Animal Rights

All studies submitted to SA Heart for publication must be in compliance with institutional and international regulations for human and animal studies such as the Helsinki declaration (2008) (http://www.wma.net/en/30 publications/10policies/b3/17c.pdf) and the South African MRC ethics guidelines (http://www.sahealthinfo.org/ethics/index.htm). Human studies require ethics committee approval and informed consent which must be documented in your manuscript. Animal studies require ethics committee approval and must conform to international guidelines for animal research. Compliance with these requirements must be documented in your manuscript.
