Big Shout out to the OVP Journal review Board
Review board members are crucial to the workings of any successful journal. They not only review articles but help to recruit authors to submit articles. At Optometry & Visual Performance, we strive to have a diverse review board geographically and in philosophy of vision, and a mixture between academics and those in private practice. Review board members typically service two-year terms. The members are routinely rotated to ensure new viewpoints are represented. There are currently 10 countries and 20 optometric instructions represented.
