CVIR's New Manuscript Management System

CVIR is dedicated to continually improving the manuscript submission and review experience for its contributors. For this reason, the journal has changed its manuscript management system to Editorial Manager – a system currently used by a vast number of other scientific, peer-reviewed journals.

To access the new submission website, please visit:

Please note that any manuscripts currently being managed within the old Manuscript Central website (i.e. all manuscripts submitted before 1st December, 2015) will complete their review process in the old website. Reviewers will also complete their reviews in the old website.

We kindly request that all authors and reviewers* visit Editorial Manager to update their information – particularly their areas of expertise – to ensure that they can be contacted when necessary.

*If you recently received an email from the CVIR Editorial Office with your log in details, then you already have an active user account in the system.

Should you have any questions regarding the new system, please contact the CVIR Editorial Office:
