Aims and Scope

Editor-in-Chief: Professor Scott Fraser

Clinical Ophthalmology is an international, peer reviewed, open access journal covering all subspecialties within ophthalmology.

Specific topics covered by the journal include:

  • Optometry
  • Visual science
  • Basic Sciences, such as cell biology and genetics
  • Primary and Secondary eye care
  • Pharmacology and drug therapy in eye diseases
  • Patient Safety and Quality of Care Improvements
  • Patient Education, patient compliance, patient adherence/satisfaction

Authors are required to provide imaging and diagnostic studies regarding the clinical findings. Clinical Ophthalmology accepts original research, reviews, editorials, commentaries, book reviews and protocols for RCTs. Case reports/series submitted to Clinical Ophthalmology will be diverted to the Ophthalmology section of the International Medical Case Reports Journal (The International Medical Case Reports Journal is not an Impact Factor journal).

Letters to the Editor are only published in response to a paper. Please find requirements for letters here.

When considering submission of a paper utilizing publicly available data authors should ensure that such studies add significantly to the body of knowledge and that they are validated using the authors’ own data through replication in an original sample.

All meta-analyses require a pre-submission check prior to submitting to Clinical Ophthalmology. Please complete the pre-submission check form here.
