We, at Vascular Specialist International (VSI), extend our sincere greetings, and we hope this message finds you well and in good health. It is with pleasure that we present the VSI 2022 annual report, which highlights the significant achievements of the journal in the past year.
Despite the challenging circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, VSI’s authors and reviewers made remarkable contributions, and we advanced a significant step forward to ESCI, for which we are immensely grateful. Our efforts continued towards making VSI the premier journal in the field of vascular surgery, and we are proud to have achieved substantial progress towards that goal.
In this year’s annual report, we review the accomplishments of VSI in 2022 and acknowledge the challenges and changes faced during this period. We also express our gratitude to the VSI editorial board and the Korean Society of Vascular Surgery for their unwavering support, which has been integral to our success.
Once again, we extend our sincere thanks to all those who have contributed to VSI’s growth and success. We remain committed to publishing high-quality research in vascular surgery and continuing our efforts towards the betterment of healthcare.

In 2022, our journal made a big step forward. As of November 2022, Vascular Specialist International has been indexed in Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). ESCI is a multidisciplinary index of the Web of Science Core Collection database. All articles published after 36(1), 2020, are now indexed and searchable on the Web of Science. To make scientific research published in VSI widely available, our editorial members have focused on making VSI visible in international citation databases during the last few years. We are now indexed in the ESCI, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Scopus, PubMed, PMC, Science Central, KoreaMed, Google Scholar, and ORCID.

3. FOCUSED SESSION ON PEER REVIEW

The VSI editors held an education program for peer review during the 75th congress of the Korean Society for Vascular Surgery on April 15th, 2022. The editors of the VSI provided lectures on six topics, including the role of peer review, how to write a peer review, and publication ethics. We provided certification to the participants who completed the course.
