As new technologies and therapeutic interventions are continually being developed, Ophthalmology has become a field of rapid change, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, where disease patterns and health care delivery differ greatly from those seen in the West. Asian Journal of Ophthalmology was established in 1998, with the aim of disseminating information relevant to ophthalmology and glaucoma throughout Asia and to interested groups worldwide.
The objectives of Asian Journal of Ophthalmology are as follows:
Although the original focus of Asian Journal of Ophthalmology was on glaucoma, other topics relevant to the region have not been ignored, and currently submissions on all aspects of ophthalmology are welcome. The Editorial Board is keen to assist young and relatively inexperienced researchers in the region to present their research via an international platform.
Asian Journal of Ophthalmology is published four issues per year (quarterly) digitally. A selection of the best papers is published in print twice a year and distributed free of charge at congresses through Kugler Publications or partners.
Asian Journal of Ophthalmology provides immediate open access to its content, on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. There are no fees required to publish in the journal.
