Journal of Vascular Anomalies (JoVA)

The Journal of Vascular Anomalies (JoVA), an online-only open access journal dedicated to the scientific investigation, diagnosis, and treatment of congenital and acquired human vascular lesions, will support ISSVA's mission to spread education to physicians, researchers, allied health, and other professionals interested in the field of Vascular Anomalies.

The journal’s focus includes novel approaches, evidence-based research, critical reviews and emerging science from a broad array of medical, surgical, radiologic, and scientific disciplines. As a peer-reviewed journal, we cannot guarantee acceptance, however strongly encourage you to consider submission to further share your knowledge with the vascular anomalies community.

We are currently accepting submissions of original scientific research (molecular, genetic, histologic); original clinical studies (prospective, retrospective, case series); contemporary reviews; evidence based reviews; how I do it?; case reports; and letters to the editor.
