The Annals of Vascular Surgery peer-review journal has announced an upcoming special issue dedicated to original work by women that is set to be guest edited by Caitlin W. Hicks, MD, the associate fellowship program director for vascular surgery and endovascular therapy and associate professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland.
“We encourage all women to submit your best original scientific work related to vascular surgery for peer review and possible publication in our special issue,” Hicks said. “Please note that we will not accept review articles, case reports, or commentaries given the high volume of competitive original scientific works that we anticipate.”
Interested researchers are being encouraged to submit an abstract for review by the editorial team, with those selected then offered the opportunity to submit a full manuscript. Issue editors note that abstracts may have been presented at or submitted to a meeting, but should be free from embargo by September 2023.
They should be uploaded by Monday, Dec. 5, with all authors notified of their abstract’s selection or rejection by Monday, Dec. 19. Selected manuscript submissions will be due by Feb. 1, 2023. “Annals of Vascular Surgery is excited about the opportunity to highlight the amazing research being performed by women in our specialty,” added Hicks.
Questions about the process, should be directed to Hicks directly at [email protected] or Annals of Vascular Surgery managing editor Camilla Davies at [email protected] The full abstract link is: www.surveymonkey.com/r/AVSWomen.
