As I spent countless hours pouring over hundreds of manuscripts to select those that rose to the top over the past year, I became incredibly excited about being part of a Journal that produces such wonderfully rich and diverse content each year. I have personally selected the papers (both original investigations and review articles) from 13 distinct specialties for your review. There are approximately 150 articles selected across this 2-part series, which represents less than 3% of the papers submitted to JACC in 2014. In order to present the full breadth of this important research in a consumable fashion, we will present these manuscripts over the course of 2 issues of JACC. Part One includes the sections: Congenital Heart Disease, Coronary Disease & Interventions, Genetics, Omics, & Tissue Regeneration, CV Prevention & Health Promotion, Cardiac Failure, and Cardiomyopathies (1–70). Part Two includes the sections: Hypertension, Imaging, Metabolic Disorders & Lipids, Neurovascular & Neurodegenerative Disorders, Rhythm Disorders, Valvular Heart Disease, and Vascular Medicine.
