welcoming SIRS to Cvir

We are happy to announce that the the international CVIR community continues to grow. This month (January 2019) we warmly welcomed the Serbian Society of Interventional Radiology (SIRS), who has endorsed CVIR as their official journal.


More than 20 national societies have endorsed CVIR as their official journal, take a sneak peak of the complete list here.

New Impact Factor

CVIR is delighted to announce its new impact factor (IF) of 2.210 – the highest in the journal’s history!


The first data about CVIR's IF is available from 1997, being 0.865. Two years later in 1999 the IF increased to 1.178. Since then the IF increased steadily over the years, reaching an all-time high of 2.210 in the year 2017.


Special thanks go to our valued authors, without them this success wouldn't be possible. We hope you continue to view CVIR as your journal of choice.

40th Anniversary special online issue

Four decades have gone by since CVIR was established. Back in 1978 Herbert L. Abrams and Eberhard Zeitler founded the journal with the goal of having a platform for scientific communication from all over the world in the field of cardiovascular and interventional radiology.


On this occassion Prof. Hausegger has prepared an anniversary issue of CVIR; a selection of key articles from CVIR’s previous issues, including historical papers, cornerstone papers and other popular articles.


Enjoy the read! 

Manuscript Processing Time

When you as the author are done submitting your manuscript, this is where our work starts.

Behind the scenes and the complexity of our manuscript submission system, Editorial Manager there is a whole world of reviewing, editorial processing and decision-making that exists parallel to the real world. The editorial process is complex and different from journal to journal. Editorial office works like a bee hive, with every bee having a respective task in the organisation in order to get the work done as fast and effectively as possible.

Well, our editorial bees - Section Editors, Regional Editors, Editorial Board Members and the Editor-in-Chief - have been very hard-working in 2017 and together they managed to cut the manuscript processing time so you don't have to wait long for a decision on your submitted paper.

We are proud to announce the new time
from manuscript submission to first Editor's decision: 26 days.

New Editor-in-Chief

Prof. Klaus Hausegger (Klagenfurt/AT) was chosen as the new Editor-in-Chief of CVIR in 2016 and took officially the helm of the journal on 1st September, 2017. He took over the Editorial Office of CVIR from the Prof. Dierk Vorwerk, who led the journal since 2003.
