This is the first issue of the World Journal of Hypertension (WJH), a bimonthly peer-reviewed, online, open-access (OA) journal. The WJH will emphasize basic and clinical research about hypertension. As the OA model provides free, full-text articles in PDF and other formats for experts and the public without registration, the WJH enhances the speed of propagation and communication of scientific research results. As Editor-in-Chief of the WJH, I and the other members of the editorial board wish to share new ideas and knowledge about basic, clinical research and epidemiology in hypertension. We believe that you will find the WJH as an important journal in which to publish your excellent works.
