Aims and Scope

Editor-in-Chief: Professor Scott Fraser

Key Benefits:

  • Concise rapid reporting
  • Very fast peer review and decisions upon manuscripts
  • All areas of eye disease covered
  • Use of electronic and print media allowing publication in a range of formats

Subject areas:

  • All subspecialties within ophthalmology
  • Optometry
  • Visual science
  • Pharmacology and drug therapy in eye diseases
  • Basic Sciences . such as cell biology and genetics
  • Primary and Secondary eye care
  • Patient Safety and Quality of Care Improvements

These areas will be addressed through:

  • Original clinical research
  • Reviews of important areas and perspectives
  • Protocols for RCT’s
  • Expert opinion and commentary
  • ‘E-letters’ feature allowing comments on articles published electronically or in print
  • Quality improvement reports
  • Surgical tips and devices
  • Patient Safety Reports i.e. ideas to make ophthalmology safer
  • Patient compliance/adherence satisfaction/acceptability, patient education and literacy
  • Photo essays   
  • Book reviews
  • ‘Personal views’ – i.e. opinion and thoughts from practitioners or patients
  • Case reports submitted to Clinical Ophthalmology will be diverted to the Ophthalmology section of the International Medical Case Reports Journal (this will be explained at the point of submission).

Likely audience:

  • This is a general ophthalmology journal and is international
  • The clinical focus will make the journal of interest to all eye care practitioners
  • The presence of patient safety and quality improvement reports means the journal is of interest to policy makers and administrators
  • Basic and visual scientists are invited to submit clinically relevant articles and the output will be of some interest to them
  • Physicians working outside of eye care will also be encouraged to submit relevant work

As of 1st April 2019, Clinical Ophthalmology will no longer consider meta-analyses for publication.
