Sharable links for CVIR articles 

Dear readers and authors,

Explore a new sharing feature of CVIR and share articles freely with peers and general audiences across the web. This new sharing option provides authors and readers with sharable links to a read-only version of the articles. This read-only version cannot be downloaded or printed out, but it is a great opportunity to improve the visibility and impact of your work.

For Authors:

When an article is published, the corresponding author receives a sharable link that can be shared with the co-authors. Now, authors can copy the same link and share it with anyone else or post it on social media. If you are an author, you can request sharable links of other research articles that you have authored by entering the article’s DOI into the Springer author portal.


For Subscribers:

On the webpage of every article you’ll see a ‘Share’ or ‘Share article’ option. If you click on this, for every article you have subscription access to, you’ll be provided with a sharable link, which you can copy and provide to other interested parties or post anywhere.


These links can be posted anywhere, including social channels and on other highly-used sites. Additionally, the links may be posted on institutional repositories and authors' own websites as well as scholarly collaborative networks, which many researchers are using to collaborate and to share both publicly and privately.

For more information on sharable links, please visit SpringerNature.




CVIR’s Year of Innovation

A change of CVIR’s cover page was just one out of many of CVIR innovations in 2016. CVIR introduced new features this year, some of which helped improve the work of the journal’s reviewers and authors. Take a closer look at all of CVIR’s innovations.

Due to a high number of excellent manuscripts we receive, CVIR is being published every month as of January 2016. Our readers can now look forward to more high-quality content and our authors have more space to publish their work.

Our new manuscript management system, Editorial Manager, is a special feature which we have introduced to provide a more user-friendly system for our authors and reviewers.

We introduced simplified guidelines for authors that are making the submission of manuscripts faster. For example, the “Conflict of Interest form” is no longer required when submitting a paper.

We are happy to introduce a new award category for the “Best Media Performance” as one of CVIR’s “Awards for Outstanding Service to the Journal”. Alongside the traditional awards for the “Most reviews carried out”, “Most Cited” and “Most Downloaded” article. With a new award category CVIR wishes to recognise the importance of social and online media for scientific research.

The new award category will be premiered at this year’s CVIR Reception at CIRSE 2016 in Barcelona. The reception is a great opportunity for CVIR to show appreciation to Editorial Board members, authors and reviewers.

CVIR and its Editorial Office will continue to put their efforts in improving features of the Journal and strengthening cooperation between interventional radiologists from all over the world while maintaining the high quality of the work published.

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:
