Aims & Scope

Resuscitation is a monthly international and interdisciplinary medical journal. The papers published deal with the aetiology, pathophysiology and prevention of cardiac arrest, resuscitation training, clinical resuscitation, and experimental resuscitation research, although papers relating to animal studies will be published only if they are of exceptional interest and related directly to clinical cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Papers relating to trauma are published occasionally but the majority of these concern traumatic cardiac arrest.

Recognised by the European Resuscitation Council as its official Journal.

Special features of Resuscitation:

The only journal that is focused entirely on cardiac arrest and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

The journal content will be of interest to healthcare professionals working in critical care, emergency medicine, acute medicine, anaesthesia, cardiology, paediatrics, and neonatology.

The journal?s open access companion title, Resuscitation Plus, welcomes a range of manuscripts, including animal studies, systematic, narrative and scoping reviews, case reports and methods papers relating to cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
