Call for Papers for on the Topic of Dry Eye Disease for Optometry and Vision Science

Submission window: August 1, 2014 to February 1, 2015

Publication July/August 2015.

Dry eye is one of the most frequently encountered ocular disorders that affect millions of people worldwide, and dry-eye symptoms are among the most common reasons for patients to visit eye-care professionals. In the past decade, there has been a noticeable increase in interest and attempts to elucidate underlying mechanisms of dry eye. Perhaps the most publicized efforts have come from two reports: International Dry Eye Workshop (2007) and International Workshop on Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (2011).1-2 The field has attracted considerable research interest since these landmark reports, and there have been changes and advances in our understanding of this enigmatic ocular condition in the past 5 years.

Optometry and Vision Science (OVS) intends to bring recent study results and clinical perspectives together in a single publication in 2015, with an esteemed team of guest editors (Penny A. Asbell, Todd P. Margolis, Nancy A. McNamara, Jason J. Nichols, Kelly K. Nichols, and Kenneth A. Polse, with Meng C. Lin as the lead guest editor). We anticipate that there will be great interest in this publication among clinicians and both basic and clinical scientists.

Among the topics of interest:

• Definitions of dry eye and changes in recent years

• Natural history of dry eye

• Mechanisms of tear-film stability and dry eye

• Effects of contact lenses on ocular surface integrity and dry eye

• Genetic and environmental factors in dry eye

• Dysfunctional corneal pain system and dry eye

• Sjögren Syndrome: dry eye and beyond

• Aqueous deficiency and evaporation, and mebomian gland dysfunction as mechanisms in dry eye

• Recent breakthroughs in dry-eye diagnosis, management, and treatment

• Post DEWS (2007)1 and Meibomian Gland Workshop (2011)2 advances in understanding dry eye

• Systemic and ocular drug impacts with the ocular surface that produce dry eyes

Call for Papers for a Feature Issue of Optometry and Vision Science: Revolutionary Future Uses of Contact Lenses

Submission window: August 1, 2014 to February 1, 2015

Publication July/August 2015.

Currently, contact lenses are almost exclusively used to correct focusing errors of the eye and provide clear vision. However, the recent availability of new materials and new technologies has resulted in some revolutionary proposals for uses of contact lenses, going well beyond correcting vision. This OVS Feature Issue, "Revolutionary Future Uses of Contact Lenses" will highlight the advances in the prescribing of contact lenses far beyond their traditional uses. Contact lenses promise new ways to deliver topical ocular and systemic drugs, and to detect, treat and monitor systemic conditions such as diabetes (e.g. Google contact lens). Technology is even promising that contact lenses could be used to deliver displays of information. And perhaps most exciting for clinicians is the use of contact lenses to control the advancement of myopia in young people, with some even suggesting they may be able to prevent the onset of myopia. Technology advances in many fields of expertise, suggest creative applications for future uses of contact lenses.

This OVS Feature issue intends to bring many of these ideas and advances together in a single publication.

OVS invites Original Articles, Invited Reviews, Case & Clinical Reports and Technical Reports that highlight the latest clinical and basic research.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

• Drug delivery for diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of ocular and systemic conditions

• Disease detection (glaucoma; cancer biomarkers; diabetes/glucose) (e.g. Google CL)

• Novel visual displays, messaging and entertainment (e.g. heads-up displays; visual screens)

• Myopia control (available CL methods, orthokeratology, CL bifocals, peripheral focus strategies)

• Other creative uses

Call for Papers by Anesthesiology: Major Trials Session

Call for Papers by Anesthesiology: Major Trials Session

Anesthesiology will sponsor a Major Trials Session at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists. The purpose is to provide a high-profile, large-audience forum for initial presentation of major randomized clinical trial results. The session is designed for substantial trials, usually randomized and blinded, with a clinically important primary outcome. Articles selected for the Trials Session will be featured in ASA press releases.

Presentation at the Major Trials Session will be restricted to results that have not presented anywhere outside the authors home institution (s), and priority will be given to results that have not been presented in any public forum.

All results presented at the Trials Session will be based on manuscripts that have been accepted for publication in the Journal, with the full papers being simultaneously published.

Full manuscripts for the 2015 Trials Session must be submitted by March 1, 2015 and will undergo an accelerated (but normally stringent) review process. During the Journal submission process, authors will have the opportunity to designate manuscripts for the Trials Session, which will require agreeing not to present the results publicly while the work is under consideration. If a designated manuscript is not deemed acceptable, authors will be notified early enough to allow submission to the Annual Meeting late-breaking abstract session.

In summary, we encourage investigators to take advantage of the Journal’s Major Trials Session, a high-profile forum for presentation of substantial clinical trial results.
