ARVO + Silverchair

ARVO is globally-recognized and respected as the leading network of eye and vision researchers worldwide. ARVO’s extensive membership relies on ARVO’s digital content for groundbreaking technologies and industry trends that advance their areas of research.

Among ARVO's esteemed offerings are three peer-reviewed, open-access journals. Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science (IOVS) is one of the most comprehensive and respected journals in eye and vision research. Its scope encompasses clinical and laboratory hypothesis-based research with statistically valid results that clearly advance knowledge of the normal and abnormal processes impacting vision. The Journal of Vision (JOV) is devoted to all aspects of visual function in humans and other organisms. JOV is widely respected for hands-on datasets and models that users can easily manipulate online. Finally is ARVO’s newest journal, Translational Vision Science & Technology (TVST), which emphasizes multidisciplinary research that bridges the gap between research and clinical care.

"We are excited to extend our long-running partnership with ARVO. We look forward to continuing to support their mission of providing ongoing support for innovative vision research worldwide,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO.
