New: Template for Reviewers

CVIR is pleased to announce that it has introduced a template for reviewers in Editorial Manager. Each article type has a template which addresses the most important points that peers should include in their review reports.

 

The editors' aim with this new initiative is to improve the overall quality of review reports and to make the assessment of manuscripts easier.

New impact Factor

The 2018 Journal Citation Reports (JCR) published by Clarivate Analytics have been released, announcing CVIR's new impact factor (IF): 1.928. The IF reflects the average of citations received in 2018 of articles that were published in 2016 and 2017.

 

The IF is one of the factors that researchers consider in deciding where to publish their research. Journal reputation, readership and community, as well as speed of publication are also among these factors.

 

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

 


ethical compliance

As a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), CVIR is obliged to follow international ethical codes for publication. Ethical standards for publication exist to ensure high-quality scientific publications and public trust in scientific findings.

Therefore, it is crucial that authors who submit their paper to CVIR include a “Compliance with Ethical Standards” section in the title page. This section contains five statements: funding, conflict of interest, ethical approval, informed consent and consent to publish.

For all manuscripts (including case reports) that include written details or images relating to individual participants, consent to publish must be obtained from the participants (or their parent or legal guardian in the case of children under 16) and a statement should be included in the manuscript. If your manuscript does not contain data from any individual person, please write “not applicable” in this section.

Please read all details on publishing ethics before submitting your research.
