REVIEW PROCESS AND MANUSCRIPT SELECTION
"OphthaTherapy. Therapies in Ophthalmology " is committed to a prompt evaluation and publication of the submitted articles. All manuscripts together with supplementary files should be submitted via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Manuscripts submitted for publication are evaluated if they present new insights into the announced topic, and are likely to contribute to progress in research or to changes in clinical practice.
The received manuscripts are initially examined by the Editors. Manuscripts that do not fall within the journals scope are rejected immediately. Incomplete submissions or manuscripts that have not been prepared in the required style are returned to the authors for completion. If a manuscript is rejected without review, the authors will be notified via e-mail about the reasons for the rejection.
Articles are evaluated by at least two external referees who are asked to return comments within 3 weeks. The review form is available on the website of the journal. All submitted manuscripts are treated as confidential documents, and reviewers are instructed to treat manuscripts as such. The peer-review process is also confidential. Referees are asked to provide a written review together with the recommendation of acceptance, requirement for revision or rejection of the article. The names of the referees of the individual articles are not disclosed. The list of referees cooperating with the journal is published on the website once a year.
The Editorial Board accepts the article for publication based on the referees opinion. Authors are notified of decisions by e-mail only. The accepted papers are edited to improve their accuracy, clarity and length.
