We want to thank those who were able to join our Reviewer Workshop in December!

We hope to see you at the next workshop for reviewers in May 2022! Keep an eye out for more information on this web page.

Reviewer Workshop 2021 Speakers

Presentation on the Editor Perspective


Section Editor for Embolisation Dr. Tiago Bilhim  presented on what editors look for in a good review and why reviewing is beneficial - not only for the journal or fellow researchers, but for yourself and your professional development!


The recording of his presentation will be available here, as well as on our YouTube channel, in the coming weeks.

Presentations from the Perspective of CVIR's Top Reviewers

Dr. Marco Das and Dr. Ali Alsafi were both recognised for their stellar reviewing skills as CVIR Journal Award Winners in 2021 for Outstanding Service to the Journal for Most Reviews Carried Out, and we were extremely grateful to have them as speakers for this workshop.


They presented their approaches to reviewing for CVIR, offering a helpful guide to both new and seasoned reviewers. The videos for these presentations will be shared in the coming weeks.

CVIR Reviewer Workshop at IROS 2020


Reviewing is essential for all scientific publishing. CVIR’s editorial team is therefore very grateful for the more than 400 reviewers who share their knowledge by providing review comments for the journal. To help all contributors write even more concise and meaningful reports, Prof. Klaus Hausegger, CVIR Editor-in-Chief held a workshop at IROS 2020 for existing reviewers and physicians who would like to join the team.

He guided attendees through topics such as:
• How the CVIR review process works
• How to recognise the study type
• New reviewer templates
• How to write a structured review


Thank you to all participants!


Reviewer Workshop at cirse 2019


At CIRSE 2019, Klaus Hausegger (CVIR Editor-in-Chief) and Raman Uberoi (CVIR Deputy Editor-in-Chief) held their first workshop on best reviewing practices for the journal. Both existing and those interested in reviewing were invited to join. The workshop was well attended, with more than 70 people in attendance!


A few take home messages from the workshop:

  • Read the invitation to review carefully, look at the article type of the paper and read the abstract.
  • Reply to an invitation in a timely manner.
  • If the deadline is too short, please ask for an extension.
  • Reviewers can also include in their reply the time period in which they will be away and not able to review. If you are busy or the paper is not in your area of expertise, please decline.
  • If you cannot do the review yourself, recommend another colleague who might be able to.
  • The newly implemented reviewer template in Editorial Manager, tailored to the structure of each article type, helps reviewers make structured, detailed and objective comments.


A big thank you to all participants!
