White Rose University Press is pleased to announce that the British and Irish Orthoptic Journal (BIOJ) has now joined our open access journal platform.
The BIOJ is the official journal of the British and Irish Orthoptic Society. First published in 1939, the journal has been in print for over 75 years and this February will make the transition to a fully open access free-to-read online format. This move recognises the reputation UK orthoptics holds as a leader in education and clinical practice: the new open access format will make original research, review articles, and case reports freely available to orthoptists around the world.
The BIOJ is open for submission now and invites researchers working in the areas of clinical ocular motility, visual function, amblyopia, binocular vision, and strabismus to get in touch. The journal will consider submissions from a wide variety of disciplines, including orthoptists; optometrists; ophthalmologists; and vision technicians, among others.
We are thrilled to see this journal join the growing number of journals transitioning to our open access format. We look forward to seeing the BIOJ publish its first articles in this new phase, continuing its long tradition of contribution to their field.
