EIJ uses highly rigorous standards of editorial, peer, and statistical review to evaluate manuscripts for scientific accuracy, originality, and impact.
After the review process is complete and a decision of final acceptance by the Editorial Board is sent to the Corresponding Author, the manuscript will be published in a forthcoming issue of the Journal. Currently, EIJ releases 18 issues per year (10 Print issues and 8 Online issues).
If your manuscript is accepted for publication, the Authors will be fully responsible for the content of their article as it is submitted and will accept all the conditions including transfer of copyright of publication of the article to the Publisher of EuroIntervention (Europa Digital & Publishing).
Accepted papers will be sent to the Production Department for grammar and clarity checking, and for proofing preparation. Galley proofs will be sent to the Corresponding Author.
It is the responsibility of the corresponding author, on behalf of the co-authors, to check the comments of the Production Department carefully, address the points and queries highlighted, and return the revised galley proofs promptly. If an article is accepted for Fast Track publication, the same steps will be taken with a condensed schedule requiring a shorter time for the Corresponding Author.
The manuscript will not be modified after acceptance (except for grammar, spelling or typographic errors). If the Authors request substantial changes to the text, tables or figures, the manuscript will re-enter the review process.
Just Accepted Articles
As a public service to our Authors and Readers, accepted articles will be rapidly published online (normally within days from final acceptance) in the format of Just Accepted Article (JAA). Accepted manuscripts will be published online prior to any technical editing, formatting for publication or further author proofreading. In this format no Moving images will be available. At this stage, the content of the article is the sole responsibility of the Authors, and not that of the Journal or its Publisher. Only after the Editors allocate the manuscript to a specific issue of the Journal will the proofing process will begin.
Upon opening the webpage of an accepted article the authors will be able to view and track the papers metrics, including:
- Total and recent citations
- Where an article has been cited since publication
- Mentions on Social Media, news outlets and other sources of attentions
Retraction and Editorial Expression of Concern
If scientific misconduct is alleged, or concerns are otherwise raised about the conduct or integrity of work described in submitted or published papers, the Editorial Board of EIJ will follow the recommendation of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) and will conduct an investigation.
The Board of EuroIntervention will consult the members of the Ethics Committee and contact the authors with their concerns. Should the Journal find evidence of a misconduct, the article will be retracted or an Editorial Expression of Concern will be published. The Authors and their Superiors will be contacted along with their Institution, and the Reviewers and the Readers will be informed.
