The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) has now launched its long-awaited scientific journal focusing exclusively on the retina subspecialty of ophthalmology, Ophthalmology® Retina.
The first new scientific journal from the AAO in more than a century, Ophthalmology Retina is the AAO’s response to the rapid growth of high-quality research in retina-related eye diseases and conditions. The journal creates a channel through which researchers can publish retina studies results sooner and reach a greater number of retina specialists than ever before. And the publication chose to feature ultra-widefield retinal imaging (UWF™) from Optos, on it’s cover. Ophthalmology Retina is a subspecialty companion to its parent journal, the American Journal of Ophthalmology, one of the world’s most widely read medical publications.
Ophthalmology Retina is on track to become the preferred journal for research in this subspecialty. “There is a tremendous surplus of high-quality retina manuscripts that deserve exposure,” said David W. Parke II, M.D., CEO of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. “Ophthalmology Retina will provide a premier outlet for this work. It will allow the Academy to better serve the scientific and ophthalmic communities by providing what we fully expect will be a very high-impact factor journal that builds upon the stature of the Academy’s industry-leading journal, Ophthalmology.”
