    We know that the Journal of Cardiovascular Disease Research (JCDR) has been indexed in SCOPUS, PubMed, and other important databases in a short span of time. It indicates our strong commitment toward publishing quality articles related to cardiovascular disease research. We are proud to inform about the inclusion of our journal in SCImago Journal Ranking [SJR] recently. SJR is one of the two major journal rating systems that exist in the world: The Journal of Citation reports by ISI-Thomson and the SCImago indexes issued by Elsevier. The SCImago Journal and Country Rank portal are developed by the SCImago Research Group working at three Spanish universities [Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), University of Granada, Extremadura, Carlos III (Madrid) and Alcalá de Henares]. It is named after the SCImago Journal Rank Indicator (SJR) developed by the group. The citation data used are derived from Scopus database and journal rankings are available for journals contained in the Scopus database.
