Purpose: To track the publication fate of rejected Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR) manuscript submissions. Materials and Methods: All manuscripts submitted to JVIR for consideration in 2004, but subsequently rejected, were retrospectively evaluated. The PubMed database was searched for subsequent manuscript publication. Manuscript type, journal type and title, publication delay, journal publication volume, journal circulation volume, and journal impact factor were evaluated. Results: Two hundred thirteen of the 366 rejected JVIR submissions (58%) were subsequently published in 72 different journals as of December 15, 2007. Fifty-five of the published manuscripts (26%) were revised resubmissions to JVIR and 45 (21%) were published in Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, with 113 manuscripts published in other journals. The mean time from manuscript rejection to subsequent publication was 15.5 months. Half of the 366 rejected manuscripts were ultimately published within 25 months. Conclusions: A majority of rejected JVIR mauscripts were ultimately published. Rejection of a manuscript by JVIR does not preclude publication.
