Author Guidelines

Instructions to Authors

The mission of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Neurology is to promote dissemination of new information related to the field of neurovascular medicine. The scope of the journal includes basic science, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, disease prevention, epidemiology, and health care administration. Articles are published in a variety of formats: reviews, reports of original research, case reports, technical notes, letters, rebuttals, and editorials. To the extent that current technology allows, the journal is published on the Internet, and supplemental materials such as videos, 3-D renderings, software, and hypertext links are made available electronically. We welcome manuscripts from outside the United States.

We perform single-blind review  of submitted manuscripts. The authors’ identities and affiliations are known to reviewers. Making this information available to reviewers ensures that reviewers can identify any potential conflict of interest and recuse themselves if appropriate.

However authors can opt for double-blind review of manuscript on request at the time of submission of manuscript.

Please also familiarize yourself with our policies and ethics guidelines (last updated 8/16/2020).


Authors are invited to submit their materials through the submission system of the journal

Items submitted for publication will be professionally reviewed and edited, and modifications may be requested. If an item is accepted for publication, all authors must submit the copyright to the published materials. The editors have final judgment on whether the material is published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Neurology.


Original Research Article


Authors submitting papers reporting original data (for example, controlled trials and intervention studies) should ensure their articles do not exceed the stated limits. If after removing redundancy and repetition your article exceeds these limits please consider whether you are better served by writing two separate articles, but bear in mind the need to avoid duplicate publication. Reports of randomized controlled trials should follow the revised CONSORT statement (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials) published in JAMA (2001;285:1987-91) as closely as possible.

Word count: up to 3500 words
Structured abstract: up to 250 words
Tables/Illustrations: up to 4
References: up to 30

Please include the key messages of your article after your abstract using the following headings. This section should be no more than 3-5 sentences and should be distinct from the abstract; be succinct, specific, and accurate.

  • What is already known on this topic – summarise the state of scientific knowledge on this subject before you did your study and why this study needed to be done
  • What this study adds – summarise what we now know as a result of this study that we did not know before
  • How this study might affect research, practice, or policy summarise the implications of this study.

This will be published as a summary box after the abstract in the final published article.

Review Article


Reviews are balanced accounts of all aspects of a particular subject including the pros and cons of any contentious or uncertain aspect.

Word count: up to 3000 words

Case report


All JVIN case reports must be submitted on this Word template. The case report will be peer-reviewed by the JVIN editors in the usual manner, adhering to the double-blind requirements as outlined.

Case reports need to show either an unusual clinical development and/or a new insight into a well-recognized clinical problem. A case report needs to have an educational message and must provide evidence of how the case contributes to our understanding of the condition/treatment.

You will be asked for more detailed information on submission, eg, title, authors, and affiliations; you can also upload images, multimedia files, etc. Please note that Case Reports should examine between 1 and 3 individual cases; if your manuscript examines 4 or more cases, please submit as a Case Series submission type instead.

You are required to provide proof of consent for publication from each of the patients individually described in your article. We need a signed consent form from every patient (or guardian), regardless of whether or not you feel that the patient can be identified from the content (text and images). Please note that we cannot accept other consent forms (i.e. from your institution) or verbal consent. If for any reason you are absolutely unable to obtain a signed Consent Form from one or more of the patients, please contact the Editorial Office before submitting it, and our Editorial Assistant will let you know what steps need to be taken in order to ensure that we can still consider your case report.

Illustrative Teaching Cases


JVIN's online-exclusive series is tailor-made for budding neurologists, especially those in residency or fellowship stages. These articles pivot around real-life scenarios, delving deep into discussions, and culminating in teachable moments. The spotlight of this series isn't on the rare or arcane but aims to underscore and refresh knowledge on topics that young professionals frequently come across during their educational journey and in their subsequent practices.

The essence of these articles is multifaceted. Some might dissect the nuances of neuroanatomy, while others could elaborate on diagnostic tools specific to a condition or even break down the varied possible diagnoses based on symptoms. Simplified, concise, and enriched with clinical pearls and nuggets pertaining to cerebrovascular diseases, these articles offer swift yet comprehensive insights. Prospective authors are encouraged to peruse a few of the previously published Clinical Insights to fully grasp the ethos of this series.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Word Limit: Up to 2,000 words. This encompasses the title, main content, key pointers, acknowledgments, funding sources, disclosures, references, annotations for illustrations, tabulated data, and any additional content meant for publication.
  • Abstract: Optional.
  • Visual Aids: A maximum of 3, which can be diagrams, charts, or tables. Every illustration can have up to 6 segments (from parts A to F).
  • References: Should be concise, preferably limited to 10 at most.

JVIN aspires to be a wellspring of knowledge, especially for those at the onset of their careers, and this series is a testament to that commitment. We eagerly await your contributions.
