13. Is the journal peer-reviewed?

Yes, CVIR uses a double-blinded peer-review. It means that both the authors and reviewer identities are unknown to each other throughout the review process. To ensure the best possible practice of double-blinded peer-review, authors are asked to submit a title page with all author names and affiliations as a separate document from the main text. The main text needs to be blinded so that it does not mention any details about authors or their institutions. 


14. Who are the peer-reviewers?

Over the years, CVIR has established a reviewer database of over 500 reviewers, comprising of experts who are deemed qualified to review manuscripts based on their educational background and experience, and who have applied to act as reviewers. The reviewers are invited to review submissions which match their expertise and interest and based on the information reviewers provide in their user profiles in Editorial Manager - CVIR manuscript submission and peer-review website.

CVIR strives to invite the most qualified, suitable reviewers for all submissions which undergo a peer-review process. The aim is to ensure a high standard of objective, unbiased and timely peer review.


CVIR applies principles of publication ethics outlined in the core practices of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
