CVIR - IR research at your fingertips

CardioVascular and Interventional Radiology (CVIR) is CIRSE’s official journal. Founded in 1978 by Professors Herbert L. Abrams and Eberhard Zeitler, CVIR recently celebrated its 40th anniversary as the oldest journal in the field. The journal publishes double-blind, peer-reviewed, original research work in the field of vascular and interventional radiology.

Impact factor 2.740
I see CVIR as an independent, scientific journal content-wise, but I also see CVIR as the official voice of IR in Europe and globally.
