Acknowledgement to scientific referees 2020

As the Editors of Documenta Ophthalmologica, we would like to sincerely thank all the referees for the time and dedication given to reviewing manuscripts for Documenta Ophthalmologica in 2020.

The greatest responsibility of a scientific journal is to ensure that all contributions submitted for publication are rigorously but fairly reviewed. Therefore, we gratefully acknowledge the valuable support of our collaborators, and we would like to take this opportunity to share some positive results and new forthcoming challenges.

Documenta Ophthalmologica has been growing over the last few years:

Submissions significantly increased since 2017. However, turnaround times are very good (27 days from submission to first decision, 12 days from acceptance to online publication).

Yearly article downloads are constantly increasing. In 2020, we had more than 80,000 downloads.

The Impact Factor slightly decreased to 1.294 (2019).

We look forward to maintaining our collaborative efforts to ensure that the impact of Documenta Ophthalmologica continues to grow and our journal continues to attract manuscripts of exceptionally high standards of research in the field of basic and clinical electrophysiology of vision.

With kind regards,

Mineo Kondo
