The International Society for Neurovascular Disease (ISNVD) board members held five meetings at the Hilton
Hotel in Orlando during the Second Annual Scientific Meeting on February 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st and 22nd,
2012. Present at the meetings, were not only the executive committee members, but also many of the board
members of the society. Many interesting topics were brought up at those meetings, mainly focusing on how
to get new members to sign up for the society, starting the journal of the ISNVD, the 2013 ISNVD Meeting in
Poland and as well as electing new board members for the 2012-2013 fiscal year.
ok, I should've kept reading, because it explained the journal possibility in more detail:
Regarding the new journal, many ideas were suggested to get some momentum in beginning a journal. The
main focus of the discussion was to get the publications from this journal to be on pubmed.gov. Dr. E. Mark
Haacke mentioned that “the first most important aspect in a society is the annual meeting and the second
most important is the journal”. Dr. Haacke continued saying “now is the right time to initiate the Society’s
journal”. Dr. Zivadinov spent some time discussing the difference between an electronic journal and a more
conventional approach. Dr. Zivadinov also proposed that he and Dr. Marian Simka would research further
how to proceed with the journal and come up with two alternate proposals.
