Journal of VitreoRetinal Diseases

In August of 2016, the American Society of Retina Specialists launched its official peer-reviewed scientific journal -- the Journal of VitreoRetinal Diseases (JVRD).

With this world-class online and print publication, ASRS, along with partner SAGE Publishing, provides a trusted resource for the highest-quality research and clinical information in the rapidly evolving field of retina.

Led by Editor-in-Chief Donald J. D’Amico, MD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Ophthalmology, Weil Cornell Medical College/New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and a stellar international editorial board, JVRD focuses exclusively on publishing original basic, translational and clinical research papers across the spectrum of vitreoretinal diseases.

The ASRS and its publishing partner SAGE plan to submit an application to PubMed with a request for retroactive indexing once a requisite number of manuscripts have been published. 

In the meantime, ASRS and SAGE are taking steps to ensure that submitted articles are easily discoverable. In addition to the ASRS member distribution: 

  • For the first full year, SAGE will make all articles freely available on the journal site immediately with no embargo, further increasing exposure and citation potential for these articles.
  • Authors can submit accepted manuscripts directly to PubMed Central. 

Submissions categories include:  

  • Original Manuscripts
  • Reviews
  • Letters to the Editor
  • Case Series
  • Clinical Trials
