It is with great pleasure that we announce that the Journal of Glaucoma (JOG) has become the official journal of the World Glaucoma Association (WGA)!
This collaboration joins together the world’s premier journal for glaucoma research and the largest international society for glaucoma, representing over 12,000 members and 89 glaucoma societies from around the world.
Journal of Glaucoma
Journal of Glaucoma is currently the only scientific journal devoted to glaucoma that is both indexed and has an impact factor, giving the Journal a unique position in the glaucoma community. In conjunction with the World Glaucoma Association, the Publisher will also be offering special rates for hard copy subscriptions.
Journal of Glaucoma has had considerable success in 2017, with a rising impact factor (2.263, representing an 8% increase from 2015), increasing submissions (>660), and decreased times from acceptance to online publication (2 weeks) and print (< 3 months).
Journal of Glaucoma now ranks among the fastest growing journals and is a leader in publication turn-around time.
Call for Editor-in-Chief Candidates
The Journal of Glaucoma is a monthly peer-reviewed journal addressing the spectrum of issues affecting definition, diagnosis, and management of glaucoma and providing a forum for lively and stimulating discussion of clinical, scientific, and socioeconomic factors affecting care of glaucoma patients. Each issue presents original articles on new approaches to diagnosis, innovations in pharmacological therapy and surgical technique, and basic science advances that impact on clinical practice.
The Editor-in-Chief’s responsibilities include developing the journal’s content on an ongoing basis; soliciting, processing and editing submissions in a timely manner; working with and further developing the Editorial Board; and collaborating with the Publisher to increase the journal’s visibility, author submissions, and readership.
