The European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery (EJVES) is aimed primarily at vascular surgeons dealing with patients with arterial, venous, and lymphatic diseases. Contributions are included on the diagnosis, investigation, and management of these vascular disorders. Papers that consider the technical aspects of vascular surgery are encouraged, and the journal includes invited state-of-the-art articles. Articles describing endovascular method and their critical evaluation are included, as well as reports on the emerging technology associated with this field. Discover here the editorial board of the journal.

Impact factor

The Journal Impact Factor (IF) measures the number of times an average paper from a journal has been cited during the preceding two years.

With a 2020 IF of 7.069, EJVES is once againg the leading journal in vascular surgery. We continue to develop new initiatives and ideas with the goal of further enhancing the quality of the Journal, and hope that as many of you as possible will continue to submit your best clinical and scientific research papers to the EJVES.
