Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science (IOVS), published online several times a month, is an official journal of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), an international organization whose purpose is to advance research worldwide into understanding the visual system and preventing, treating and curing its disorders. Included are original contributions that emphasize clinical and laboratory hypothesis-based research with statistically valid results that clearly advance the fields of ophthalmic and vision research. IOVS de-emphasizes purely descriptive research. Subjects cover the 13 sections represented by ARVO's membership and the 3 ARVO cross-sectional groups. Short updates on notable new developments in important research areas are also published, but only by invitation. Summaries of meetings/symposia and general review articles are not considered.
Manuscripts must be submitted using the IOVS manuscript tracking
system at http://iovs.msubmit.net. Please see
http://iovs.arvojournals.org/ss/forauthors.aspx for manuscript
preparation and submission instructions.
