PULSE for March 31, 2016: JVSVL Now on PubMed

Venous & Lymphatic Disorders on PubMed

Publication is fully searchable

The Journal of Vascular Surgery:Venous and Lymphatic Disorders is now indexed on PubMed, from Issue 1 Volume 1. PubMed is often the first stop for researchers because it comprises more than 25 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals and online books. 

Not only does this accomplishment increase the visibility of the Journal, it confirms the Journal of Vascular Surgery: Venous and Lymphatic Disorders as the premier international journal of medical, endovascular and surgical care of venous and lymphatic disorders.
Only 12 to 15 percent of the journals reviewed are recommended for inclusion in MEDLINE, so it is clear that this accomplishment is due in great part to the fact that every issues of JVSVL includes high-quality and rigorously peer-reviewed articles.
