Society of Interventional Radiology selects Elsevier as new publisher of official journal

November 27, 2006

Elsevier is pleased to announce that, as of January 1, 2007 it will become the publisher of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR), the official journal of the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR). Under the leadership of Editor Albert A. Nemcek, Jr., MD, Professor of Radiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago, Illinois, JVIR will continue to showcase the research that matters to the interventional radiology field.

Christine Rullo, Publishing Director at Elsevier, states, "Elsevier is delighted to be working with the Society of Interventional Radiology to help extend the dissemination of information published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology both domestically and internationally. As the journal enters its 18th year of publication, we are eager to work closely with the JVIR team and its Editor to further scientific communication and to support the translation of scientific discovery into improved patient care."

Dr. Nemcek, Editor of JVIR, adds, "We are extremely pleased and excited to be partnering with Elsevier in the publication of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology. Elsevier has a long and stellar record of high quality, innovation, and professionalism in medical publishing, and we look forward to a long and productive relationship."

Elsevier, a world-leading medical and scientific publisher, will bring the full support of its global organization to the Society. It is recognized for its numerous long-standing and successful society-publishing partnerships, as well as excellence in all aspects of the publishing process. ScienceDirect, Elsevier's world-class electronic platform with over 16 million users, will provide access to full text of current and archived issues of JVIR to institutional subscribers. SIR members and individual subscribers will continue to be able to access JVIR on the HighWire platform.

The Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology is designed to keep the reader up to date on the most significant developments in the field of minimally invasive image-guided treatments - everything from the latest state-of-the-art techniques to short technical reports that highlight novel solutions to common problems, and reviews of the cost-effectiveness of various treatment protocols. Readers will continue to find authoritative information on topics such as the use of vascular stents, dialysis access intervention, venous thromboembolic disease, uterine artery embolization, stent-grafts, carotid artery stenting, image-guided pain management, peripheral arterial disease, women's health, and ablative therapies for liver, kidney, bone and lung tumors.

In addition to peer-reviewed original articles, JVIR keeps the reader informed of advancements in the field through regular features such as editorials, review articles, standards of practice, clinical studies, laboratory investigations, brief reports, Letters to the Editor, special communications and book reviews. Every issue of JVIR is extensively illustrated with high-quality images that highlight and support key points and concepts.

Interventional radiology is a rapidly growing area of medicine. Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally-invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging for guidance. Their unique blend of skills enabled them to pioneer non-surgical treatments, such as angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, which revolutionized modern medicine in many fields. Today, interventional radiology treatments are first-line care for a wide variety of conditions and have less risk, less pain and shorter recovery time compared to open surgery.

Interventional radiology is a recognized medical specialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties and their board certification includes both Vascular and Interventional Radiology and Diagnostic Radiology. This combination creates a specialist with the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties, providing an unusual breadth of knowledge to help patients and their physicians solve medical problems.
