- The Editorial Board of the journal “Angiology and Vascular Surgery” adheres to the norms and standards of the Declaration of Helsinki of the World Medical Association (WMA) “Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects" adopted at the 18th General Assembly in June 1964 and revised at the 64th Congress of the General WMS Assembly in 2013,, and the recommendations developed by the Council of International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOIMS) “International Guiding Principles for Biomedical Research Involving Animals” in 2012, and considers that all studies involving humans and animals as subjects of study should be carried out in correspondence to the principles laid down in these documents. In the section “Materials and methods”, the authors should indicate that all patients or volunteers undergoing scientific studies signed a written informed consent.

- Such information as surnames, initials, numbers of case histories of patients should not be published in ether the text, illustrations (e. g., roentgenograms), or captions thereto, except cases when such information is important for scientific purposes. Such being the case, a written volunteer consent of the patient (his/her relatives or caretakers custodians) is required. The same applies to photographs of patients. The authors should have informed the patient of whether his/her data (including photos) would be published in printed editions or Internet. The informed consent requires that a patient giving his/her agreement for publication of his/her data has seen the manuscript and illustrative material prior to publication.

- If study objects were animals, the text of the manuscript should mention that the authors ensured human attitude towards them. In the section “Materials and methods” the authors should indicate that the researches acted in accordance with the “Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals ( or according to local or national guidelines concerned.

- Each author’s contribution to the study performed should be substantial. Each author should have taken direct participation in the research and writing of the manuscript, being responsible for its content. Other participants of the study not meeting the criteria for authorship should advisably be mentioned in the section “Acknowledgements” at the end of the manuscript. More detailed information on authorship can be found at the site of the International Committee on Medical Journal Editors via the link.

- When using citations in the text of the manuscript (in quotation marks), it is necessary to indicate in the footnote the source of the citation (author’s full name, title of the edition, its impressum, page number). Citations given in the article should be thoroughly checked by the authors.

- Manuscripts prepared not in accordance with the requirements will not be accepted to consideration. If a manuscript was considered by peer-reviewers but rejected for publication, a justified refusal is e-mailed to the authors. In some cases, the manuscript can be sent to the authors with proposals to make a series of changes and additions and to re-submit the corrected manuscript for re-consideration by the Editorial Board.

- Peer-reviewers have the right for confidentiality strictly observed by the Editorial Board. The data and comments of the peer-reviewer are neither published nor disclosed without the consent of the peer-reviewer and editor.

- Articles dedicated to jubilee events should be sent not later than 3 months prior to the anniversary date.

Reprints of the articles published in the Journal are freely available to the authors.

Dear authors,

Each author of our Journal is encouraged to register at the site ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID), with the registration being free of charge.

Instead of entring personal data in innumerable electronic forms related to publishing articles or receiving grants, a researcher may simply enter his/her ORCID number, with various fields being filled in automatically, using the data from bases of articles, citations, grants and contact information.

The OCHID helps distinguish authors with similar names.

The ORCID solves the author name ambiguity problem, i. e., your data can always be specified by the ORCID, thus increasing your individual citation index.

The Editorial Board reserves the right to peer-review and edit the manuscripts submitted. There is no fee for publishing articles.

Articles should be sent to:
