Endovascular treatment is a multidisciplinary profession which is producing a constant stream of new technologies and scientific publications. Interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, cardiologists and angiologists are all active in this field.
The developments in endovascular treatment are presented at an exceptional pace, whether that be through modifications of existing technologies or completely new pathways. Fast communication without borders and hurdles is therefore needed, and open access is the way forward.
Therefore, we created CVIR Endovascular as a platform to publish papers focused on endovascular treatment and to communicate to the endovascular community through a constant stream of publications.
Discussions among peers have been fundamental to the development of endovascular treatment. We would like to keep this tradition alive by opening a discussion platform for the whole endovascular community.
The open access model of the journal will offer a fast and reliable way to disseminate knowledge and can be supported with several funding schemes in case authors are in need of resources for article publication.
A fast and effective open peer-review process, in line with the characteristics of the endovascular attitude, will ensure a rapid appraisal of manuscripts.
CVIR Endovascular seeks to facilitate an environment of engaging with, learning from, and questioning your peers, and we are confident CVIR Endovascular will actively contribute to creating a bridge between different modalities that are in charge of endovascular treatment and will facilitate their use in the scientific community.
