CVIR applies a double-blind peer review. Referees remain anonymous for the author during the review procedure and the author’s name is removed from the manuscript under review.

Each article is first assessed by one of the editors from the editorial board and, if judged suitable for publication in CVIR, is sent to two external reviewers for a double-blind peer review. This process will take an average of 4-6 weeks. Based on their recommendations, editors then decide whether the paper should be accepted as is, revised or rejected. In case of revisions, a final decision on publication will be made after resubmission. If there is no agreement on the part of the editors, the issue editor will make the final decision.
