Evolution and transformation of JVS journals

      Nothing endures but change.—Heraclitus
      As 2021 comes to an end, we are pleased to report that the state of the Journal of Vascular Surgery publications is stronger than at any time in the history of our journals. This was a year of growth and transformation. Our flagship journal, the Journal of Vascular Surgery (JVS) earned an impact factor of 4.268, an all-time high in the 38-year existence of this premier international publication (Fig). The Journal of Vascular Surgery: Venous and Lymphatic Disorders reinforced its position as the leading publication in the international venous and lymphatic field with an impact factor of 2.859 in the ninth year of its publication. The Journal of Vascular Surgery Cases, Innovations and Techniques has been growing rapidly, publishing an estimated 33% more articles in 2021 than just 2 years ago. We adjusted the name to indicate the increased the scope of this open access, online journal; we now accept articles on innovations in practice, education, outcome assessment, and techniques, in addition to case reports, vascular videos, and images. The fourth member of the JVS family, JVS-Vascular Science, has also grown well beyond expectations. Recognizing the high scientific and editorial standards of this journal, the U.S. National Library of Medicine has just accepted JVS-Vascular Science into PubMed Central; thus, all articles will be indexed retroactively starting with volume 1, 2020—quite an accomplishment for a young journal in its second year of publication. This welcome evolution of a high-quality JVS portfolio occurred in parallel with major transformations in our editorial policies, educational programs, leadership, and boards. The diversity of each journal's editorial board has significantly improved and now includes ≥25% women and underrepresented minorities.

      The second year of the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic, which has claimed >700,000 lives in the United States, has had a sustained effect on all scientific publications, including the JVS journals. The submission rates for all categories of articles remained extremely high, with an estimated 2859 new submissions in 2021, 31% higher than before the pandemic and just slightly lower than in 2020. In addition, in 2021, we published ∼70 articles on COVID-19 and vascular disease, and our online collection includes 152 articles (available at: www.jvascsurg.org).
      JVS, the “red” arterial journal in our portfolio, is a hybrid subscription and open access monthly publication, with a print circulation of 4600. It continues to be the premier international journal of medical, endovascular, and surgical care of vascular disease, publishing articles from 67 countries. Among the vascular surgery journals, JVS is second in impact factor and first in total citations, number of citable articles, the SCImago Journal Rank and the Immediacy Index, which counts citations in the year of publication (Table).

      Social media continues to be an important tool for JVS journal editors, authors, and readers. JVS has 4513 Facebook, 7037 Twitter, and 16,861 LinkedIn followers. Our social media channels regularly promote our “Special Features,” which include the monthly “Editors' Choice” summary videos, the everpopular “Visual Abstracts,” “Press Releases,” “Audible Bleeding” podcasts, “Journal Clubs,” special journal events, and more. We are happy to see that JVS content usage continues to grow, with an estimated 2,300,000 full-text downloads and 106,480 average monthly visits in 2021 to our website, www.jvascsurg.org. We hope the progress in the journal quality metrics and the increasing social media presence will translate into a better understanding of vascular disease by vascular specialists and into better care and outcomes for vascular patients, which is our ultimate goal.
      2021 was the year of major transformations in our educational programs. The JVS Journal Club, now held monthly and spearheaded by Paul DiMuzio and Misty Humphries, has had dedicated followers since its inception, with 100 to 150 trainees and practicing vascular surgeons registering for each event. The quality has been exceptional, the discussions have been lively and engaging, and we anticipate it will continue to prosper. The Journal Club represents a great opportunity to read and understand papers published in the JVS.
      Ulka Sachdev-Ost, our new associate editor with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, developed the JVS internship to teach residents and fellows about the process of reviewing vascular papers. Our goal with this educational program was both training the next generation of reviewers and improving their clinical and basic research skills. We have seven interns, and each has a mentor who works with them closely in reviewing papers and making suggestions for improvement. The interns also attend monthly presentations by the JVS faculty. These sessions will be available online in the new Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) learning system.
      Our collaboration with “Audible Bleeding,” a podcast recorded with each issue of the JVS deserves special recognition. The discussion of four highlighted papers each month has opened the journal to those who use podcasts to keep current on vascular publications, often while maintaining very busy schedules as residents and fellows. We thank Nicole Rich, Adham Elmously, Adam Johnson, Sharif Ellozy, Jacob Schwartzman, and other founders and collaborators of Audible Bleeding, who have created a great learning tool for our journal.

      The progress JVS journals made resulted from the outstanding manuscripts our authors submitted from around the world, and we are grateful for these contributions. Success, however, would not have been achieved without the hard work and expertise of an exceptional JVS team. We greatly appreciate the contributions of our Associate Editors, Thomas L. Forbes, Fred A. Weaver, Ulka Sachdev-Ost, and Alan Dardik, and our Assistant Editors, Keith D. Calligaro, Paul DiMuzio, Audra Duncan, and Daniel K. Han. We also express our deepest gratitude to the dedicated members of our editorial board and our many reviewers, listed below, who have read, reviewed, and reviewed again an increasing number of submissions. In recognition of a most successful year, we are pleased to extend the current positions of all our editors and editorial board members for the next 6 months. Thus, the new editorial leadership, who will start in July 2022, will have an opportunity to select new editors and editorial board members from the many outstanding individuals who wish to contribute to the JVS journals.
      Finally, we are particularly thankful to our dedicated JVS staff: Senior Managing Editor, Jessica McEwan; Managing Editors, Alexandria Sese and Tyler Cosgrove; Senior Editorial Assistant, Carlee Green; and Editorial Assistant, Emily Sachs. We are also grateful to the SVS and our sponsoring societies who support our journal and enable us to publish great articles from their annual meetings. As we welcome a new year in 2022, we continue to be thankful for the honor and opportunity to serve you as editors of the great family of JVS journals.

      Acknowledgment of reviewers

      We are extremely grateful for our expert reviewers for their valuable contributions. Peer reviewers work without compensation and unselfishly provide their time and expertise to our journals. Peer review is essential to validate the credibility of scientific research by others working in the same field. The goal is to maintain the integrity of science, improve the quality of the manuscripts, and provide valuable input to the editors who decide the fate of the manuscripts.

      Acknowledgment of associate and assistant editors

      We are blessed to have excellent Associate and Assistant Editors, who helped us in 2021 to manage the increasing number of submissions, without compromising the high quality of the articles published in the JVS. Drs Thomas L. Forbes and Fred A. Weaver served as Associate Editors for Clinical Studies and managed an overwhelming number of submissions in 2021. They were joined by Dr Ulka Sachdev-Ost, who reviewed both clinical and research papers, led our efforts to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in our editorial system, and directed the JVS internship program—a great job by a dedicated surgeon. We are also thankful for the contributions of our Associate Editor for Basic Science, Dr Alan Dardik, who excels now in his new role as Editor of JVS-Vascular Science. We are indebted to Dr Keith Calligaro for his insightful commentaries and astute summaries of key non-JVS publications on vascular disease management in our Vascular Vantage Point and for his book reviews. We are thankful to our new Assistant Editor for Reviews, Dr Audra Duncan, for her expertise and hard work.
      Special thanks to Dr Paul J. DiMuzio, Editor for Social Media, director of the JVS Journal Clubs, and author of JVS Press Releases, and Dr Daniel Han, who has become a master editor producing “Visual Abstracts” and has helped us tremendously to increase our social media presence on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other platforms.

      Acknowledgment of the editorial board

      We are thankful for the valuable contributions made by our excellent Editorial Board in 2021. In addition to the review and repeated review of a large number of original articles, our Editorial Board Members frequently contributed to JVS with commentaries and editorials. Members of the Editorial Board perform an average of 12 reviews each year, and, during 2021, this accounted for 33% of all the reviews performed.
      The Editors would like to recognize all the board members who will who continue their assignments in 2022.

      Distinguished reviewers

      The Editors would like to recognize the Distinguished Reviewers of the JVS, who have performed more than five reviews during the review period between January and September 2021 and who consistently performed the highest rated and timely reviews. These Distinguished Reviewers contributed 28% of all reviews. We thank them for their efforts to ensure a high-quality peer-review process.
