The Hellenic Society of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery leads the effort to re-publish and upgrade the Society's official scientific journal. The journal, entitled "Hellenic Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery", will be published in English to have a greater scientific impact and reach beyond the borders of Greece. HJVES is aimed at any specialty dealing with patients with arterial, venous and lymphatic diseases. Thus, contribution from the fields of vascular surgery, interventional radiology, anesthesiology, angiology, diabetology, cardiology and any other that involves some kind of vascular pathology is welcomed. We therefore invite everyone that is interested to submit his/her scientific work, including original studies, systematic reviews, interesting cases, technical aspects and other interesting articles in the field of vascular surgery, vascular imaging, intravascular techniques as well as in the prevention and treatment of vascular diseases. In particular, endovascular techniques and reports on the emerging technology are also encouraged.

The journal will be published by the Publisher Press "ROTONDA PUBLICATIONS", based in Thessaloniki, and will be available free of charge in electronic form (pdf), through its’ website. Submission and publication of articles will be also free of charge. All articles will be subjected to "peer review" by external peer reviewers who are specialized in the field of the subject in order to improve and harmonize them with the structure of the journal. The thematic and lead publishers will make the final decision for publication, while the Journal is committed decisions not to delay more than 40 days from submission. The process of "peer review" is considered necessary both to ensure the quality of the magazine and its possible future acceptance by international databases and PubMed in particular.
