The European Heart Journal is a peer-reviewed medical journal of cardiology published by Oxford University Press on a weekly basis, on behalf of the European Society of Cardiology. The first issue was published in February 1980.

The medical journal publishes both clinical and scientific papers on all aspects of cardiovascular medicine. It includes articles related to research findings, technical evaluations, and reviews. In addition, the journal features reviews, clinical perspectives, podcasts, and editorial articles about recent developments in cardiology, and encourages correspondence from its readers. Another important aspect of the journal are the ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines, which cover all areas of cardiology.

In 2018, the journal had an impact factor of 24.889, ranking it first out of 136 journals in the category "Cardiac & Cardiovascular Systems".

Thomas F. Lüscher (Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital Trust and Universität Zürich) is the editor-in-chief.
