Date:1/26/2011

FAIRFAX, Va.The Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiologythe monthly, peer-reviewed flagship publication of the Society of Interventional Radiologyannounced several major changes for 2011all directed at highlighting the global impact of this minimally invasive medical specialty and its lead journal. JVIR, which has been published since 1989, focuses on critical and cutting-edge medical, minimally invasive, radiological, pathological and socioeconomic issues of importance to vascular and interventional radiologists.

"Changes have been made to further enhance the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology's core strengths, particularly to streamline its editorial process. My target goal is 30 days for time to first decision for new manuscripts," said new editor-in-chief Ziv J Haskal, M.D., FSIR. "JVIR is a vigorous engine for rapid peer review and delivery of the most novel and impactful, global, cutting-edge, basic science research, clinical reports and evidence-based medicineJVIR aims to build on that legacy," explained Haskal, professor of radiology and surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and vice chair of strategic development and chief of vascular and interventional radiology, image-guided therapy and interventional oncology at the University of Maryland Medical Center, both in Baltimore, Md.

JVIR's new look includes a cover design that incorporates the title's bold new logo, contemporary graphics and abstract angiographic images, while changes to the publication's text style, image treatments and layout combine to provide enhanced readability.

"At a time when there is a growing demand for high-quality, evidenced-based work, JVIR delivers," said SIR President James F. Benenati, M.D., FSIR, an interventional radiologist and medical director for the Noninvasive Vascular Laboratory at Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute in Miami, Fla. "As interventional radiology expands globally, the time is right for new initiatives that will leverage the tools, technology and experience of SIR members," Benenati continued. "Always innovative, JVIR will provide rapid and tight reviewing and early decision giving authors visibility for their research and readers increased access to more information through multiple new channels," he added.

"The combined expertise of the newly reconfigured JVIR editorial boarda smaller group of renowned associate editorsincluding a new deputy editor Tony P. Smith, M.D.will ensure uniformity, fairness and efficiency in manuscript handling, comments and revisions," said Haskal. Smith is a professor of radiology and division chief of peripheral and neurological radiology at the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C. In keeping with JVIR's vision for a stronger international focus, the new board includes interventional radiologists from the United States, Canada, India, Japan and Korea.

Haskal notes that one of the journal's new initiatives is to expand the ways in which it provides information by including new article types. "With James B. Spies, M.D., MPH, FSIR, professor and chair of the department of radiology at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, D.C., in the new role of review editor, JVIR readers will see multiple monthly focused, newly formatted, evidence-based reviews," he added. Robert Ryu, M.D., FSIR, of Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Ill., is JVIR's media editor, who will oversee the new JVIR podcast channel, a medium JVIR will use to create short, drive-time, hard-hitting interviews with authors of contemporaneous papers that will provide insight into methodology, study structure, controversy, biases, implications for practice and next directions for research. Michael S. Stecker, M.D., FSIR, assistant professor of radiology at Boston's Brigham & Women's Hospital, will serve as JVIR's new continuing medical education (CME) editor.
