Molecular Vision is a peer-reviewed Web journal dedicated to the
dissemination of research results in molecular and cell biology and
genetics of the visual system (ocular and cortical). We accept regular
research articles, short reports, technical briefs (which need not involve
vision science), and invited reviews.
The journal is being reviewed by Current Contents and Cambridge Scientific
Abstracts for possible inclusion in their database services.
As opposed to other scientific journals on the Web, Molecular Vision has
no print counterpart. Molecular Vision is edited and published by
scientists in the academic community. There is no affiliation with the
established scientific publishing houses. Because of these factors,
Molecular Vision is not a ³beta² version of a product that will eventually
require a subscription fee: It is free to all. Period.
As with print journals, submissions to Molecular Vision are vigorously
reviewed. Molecular Vision is NOT a preprint journal. Except for review
articles, manuscripts should present original, unpublished material not
being considered for publication elsewhere.
Please visit the journal. Feel free to make suggestions.
