Peer-review policy

Peer-review is the system used to assess the quality of a manuscript before it is published. Independent researchers in the relevant research area assess submitted manuscripts for originality, validity and significance to help editors determine whether the manuscript should be published in their journal. You can read more about the peer-review process here.

After an initial screening for general suitability, the Editors will assign submissions for external peer review. The journal will operate a 'closed' peer-review policy, and will aim to reach a first decision within six weeks.

Edited by Jay S Duker and Eduardo B Rodrigues, International Journal of Retina and Vitreous is supported by an expert Editorial Board.

Authors will be able to check the progress of their manuscript at any time by logging into the journal's submission system.
