CVIR manuscript processing time

When you, as the author, are done submitting your manuscript, this is where our work starts.

Behind the scene and the complexity of our manuscript submission system Editorial Manager there is a whole world of reviewing, editorial processing and decision making that exists parallel to the real world. Editorial process is complex and it is different from journal to journal. Editorial office works like a bee hive, with every bee having a respective task in the organisation in order to get the work done as fast and effective as possible.

Well, our editorial bees - Section Editors, Regional Editors, Editorial Board members and the Editor in Chief - have been very hard-working in 2017, and together they managed to cut the manuscript processing time and do not let you wait for too long for a decision on your submitted paper.

We are proud to announce the new time
from manuscript submission to first Editor's decision: 26,6 days.

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:
