TOOLS & TIPS
The American College of Cardiology (ACC)—along with collaborative societies—create Clinical Practice Guidelines, which become ACC policy at the time of publication. All Clinical Practice Guidelines undergo rigorous peer review that is independent of the Editors/editorial processes of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC). JACC Editors receive no compensation from the publication of the guidelines nor other ACC clinical/policy documents.
