The Reviewed Journals list is subject to regular (five year) review by the Resident Credentialing Committee (RCC). Journals will be assessed using the criteria to add a publication to the list as detailed in the Residency Training Standards and Requirements:

The journal must be listed on MEDLINE.
Previously published articles in the journal must reflect the scientific method and report hypothesis- or objective-driven research.
The impact factor (as determined by Research Gate should be ≥ 0.8.
The h5-index (as determined by Google Scholar metrics:) should be ≥15.Residents who wish to petition the RCC to add a journal to the list should refer to the current Residency Training Standards and Requirements.

Manuscripts must meet requirements outlined in the Residency Training Standards and Requirements. View a sample ACVS Manuscript Evaluation Form, which is used by the Resident Credentialing Committee to see if the manuscript meets ACVS requirements. Residents may request an early review of their accepted manuscript. The deadlines for early manuscript reviews are February 1 and August 1 each year. Please refer to the "Optional Early Review of Publication Accepted in an Approved Journal" section of the Residency Training Standards and Requirements document for more information.
