Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) has announced the start of a new journal, CVIR Endovascular, which will be an offshoot of CardioVascular and Interventional Radiology (CVIR).
The journal was launched at CIRSE’s annual meeting (16–20 September, Copenhagen, Denmark). The new journal has a multidisciplinary and international Editorial Board with leading experts from the field of endovascular treatment. Jim A Reekers, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, is the editor-in-chief.
CIRSE has stated that it wants to offer a podium and publication space for high-quality endovascular papers and research that are going unnoticed through a lack of publication possibilities. “To offer a solution for this and increase the amount of published endovascular papers, CVIR Endovascular will be open access and open peer-reviewed, providing the possibility for all interested in reading the published articles to do so for free. Through open access, CVIR Endovascular will allow articles and research on the newest trends, and hot topics in endovascular treatment to be easily disseminated and have a further reach in the medical community and amongst the public,” a press release from the organisation states.
CVIR Endovascular opened for submission on 16 September when the journal’s Springer website went live. The first published articles are expected in the first quarter of 2018.
