Phlebological Review is the official journal of the Polish Phlebological Society and an international journal that features peer-reviewed articles on research related to venous and lymphatic diseases. The journal also publishes papers on related topics such as molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, biophysics, medical technology and imaging dealing with disorders of the veins and lymphatic vessels.

All of the articles in Phlebological Review are published on an open access basis.

Published articles are available (full text) in PDF and HTML format.

Papers should be submitted to the Editorial Office on-line by the Editorial System:

Preparation of manuscripts

Articles must be written in English with American or British spelling used consistently throughout. Authors not entirely familiar with English are advised to have their style corrected by professional language editors or native English speakers.

• The length of original articles should not exceed 20 printed pages including text, illustrations, tables, and references.
• Each article should contain a structured abstract (200-250 words).
• The manuscript body should be organized in a standard form with separate sections: Introduction, Material and Methods, Results, Discussion, and References. Review articles should be divided into sections and subsections as appropriate without numbering.
• All dimensions and measurements must be given in the metric system.
• The source of any drug and special reagent should be identified.
• Particular attention needs to be paid to the selection of appropriate analysis of data and the results of statistical tests should be incorporated in the Results section.
• The nomenclature used should conform to the current edition of the Nomina Anatomica or Nomina Anatomica Veterinaria.
• Acknowledgements should be made in a separate sheet following Discussion and before References. These should contain a list of dedications, acknowledgements, and funding sources.
• Legends of figures and tables should be prepared as a separate file.
• The editor reserves the right to make corrections.


• Tables numbered in Roman numerals require a brief but descriptive heading.
• The major divisions of the table should be indicated by horizontal rules.
• Explanatory matter should be included in footnotes, indicated in the body of the table in order of their appearance.
• Tables must not duplicate material in the text or in illustrations.
• Tables must be prepared as a separate file.


All figures should be supplied electronically at a resolution of 300dpi in all standard formats (tiff, jpg, Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw, and EPS). Name your figure files with "Fig" and the figure number, e.g., Fig1.tif
• The maximum figure size is 84 mm or 174 mm for use in a single or double column width, respectively.
• When possible, group several illustrations in one block for reproduction. Like all other figures, the block should be prepared within a rectangular frame to fit within a single or double column width of 84 and 174 mm, respectively, and a maximum page height of 226 mm.
• Each figure should include the scale magnification bar; do not use magnification factors in the figure legends.
• All figures, whether photographs, graphs or diagrams, should be numbered using Arabic numerals and cited in the text in consecutive numerical order.


The list of references (written on a separate page) should include only those publications that are cited in the text. Avoid citation of academic books, manuals and atlases. References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they first appear in the text.. References should be given in square brackets with no space between the comma and the consecutive number, e.g. [3,4,6-12].

References should be written as follows:

Journal papers: initials and names of all authors, full title of the paper, journal abbreviation (according to Index Medicus), year of publication, volume (in Arabic numerals), first and last page (examples below):
1. Valverde F. The organization of area 18 in the monkey. Anat Embryol 1978; 154: 305-334.

Ethical requirements

When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000 (concerning the ethical principles for the medical community and forbidding releasing the name of the patient, initials or the hospital evidence number) and with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national). Information regarding the ethical committee approval for conducting the research and the informed consent of patients to participating in the studies should be included in the Methods section of those articles, in which the diagnostic intervention or the treatment result from non-routine procedures. The authors presenting case studies are obligated not to disclose patients' personal data. Regarding photographs, in case of any doubt that the picture inadequately protects the patient's anonymity his consent is required for publication.

Conflict of interest

Authors are expected to describe sources of the research funding, a role of the potential sponsor in planning, executing and analysis of the study, and the influence (bias) the funding organization had on the content of the article. Other relationships (such as employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony) providing potential sources of conflict of interest in relation to the submitted article should also be revealed.

Review process

Received manuscripts are first examined by the Phlebological Review editors. Manuscripts with insufficient priority for publication are rejected promptly. Incomplete submissions or manuscripts not prepared in the advised style will not be sent for a peer review until the correct and complete submission has been provided. The registered manuscripts are sent to 2-3 independent experts for scientific evaluation. We encourage authors to suggest the names of possible reviewers in the Editorial System, but we reserve the right of final selection. Submitted papers are accepted for publication after a positive opinion of the independent reviewers.
