Keeping in pace with the fast development of technology and the media, the Brazilian Archives of Cardiology have definitely entered the digital age from this issue onward. Available in pdf format since 2011, the Archives now have a format compatible with all major "tablets" and "smartphones", enabling access to the journal in full through the main systems of electronic media access. The new format also allows the incorporation of video, as well as the expansion of the information provided by published articles. Moreover, the creation of the Archives virtual library will allow readers to have quick access to published studies and disclosed information.

With a new design, following the trend of major international journals, the new version of the Brazilian Archives of Cardiology emphasizes quick access to published articles. This new achievement represents the continuity of a process started in the current journal management, which included the improvement of editorial review procedures and publication quality.

The improvement in editorial review procedures included the redesign and standardization of recommendations made during the review process, with emphasis on originality and relevance of the themes addressed in the papers, the validity and reliability of demonstrated results, and the information level of relevance for the advancement of science. The reformulation of the final review and editing processes after approval of the texts allowed the decrease in the time required for publication of articles. Currently, with an average of only ten months between the initial article submission and its final publication, and less than nine months for its availability in PubMed in English, the Brazilian Archives of Cardiology can guarantee researchers the rapid inclusion of their work in the international literature.

Aiming to consolidate our position internationally, we still have much work to do, always relying on the close collaboration of our Associate Editors, Editorial Board and all Reviewers who bring us their dedication and scientific knowledge. Furthermore, we believe that the results in fact represent the effort of all members of the Brazilian Society of Cardiology. In this sense, we hope to continue counting with the cooperation of all of you, for the improvement of our journal.
