Mission Statement:

Veterinary Ophthalmology is a peer-reviewed, online, international journal that welcomes submission of manuscripts whose target audience includes Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) and European College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ECVO), members of international ophthalmic societies and associations, academic researchers with interests in veterinary or comparative ophthalmology, specialists and general practitioners with an ophthalmology interest.  Veterinary Ophthalmology strives to serve as the primary journal for all articles pertaining to veterinary and comparative ophthalmology published worldwide.

Veterinary Ophthalmology publishes original material relating to all aspects of clinical and investigational veterinary and comparative ophthalmology. The following types of material will be considered for publication:

  • Original articles including clinical (prospective and retrospective clinical studies, limited to 5,000 words) and investigational studies. Studies involving animals must have the approval of the institution's animal care and use committee or other appropriate regulatory group (GERVO).     
  • Review articles (including papers which clarify, summarize and critically evaluate the current literature, limited to 5,000 words). These may be invited by the Editor or a member of the editorial board.    
  • Case Reports (limited to 2000 words, 4 figures and 18 references). In general, single case reports describing observations in an animal will not be considered unless the report makes a substantial contribution to ophthalmic knowledge (important mechanistic insights, illuminate a novel principle or technique, or describe a newly recognized disease or important variation or increased depth of understanding of a recognized disease) and is not merely additive to the existing literature.  Reporting a procedure previously established but performed for the first time in a new species generally does not add sufficient new knowledge to justify publication, unless unique aspects of the procedure or management have been adjusted.  Justifying innovation and unique aspects of the case is the responsibility of the authors.
    • Authors of case reports rejected by Veterinary Ophthalmology may be offered the option of having their manuscript, along with any related peer review comments, automatically transferred for consideration by the editorial team of Clinical Case Reports. Authors will not need to reformat or rewrite their manuscript at this stage, and publication decisions will be made a short time after the transfer takes place. Clinical Case Reports is an Open Access journal, and article publication charges apply. For more information, please visit: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/20500904
  • Viewpoint articles (papers which challenge existing concepts or present an alternative interpretation of available information, limited to 2,000 words) are usually invited by the Editor or a member of the editorial board.
  • Brief communications: Brief research and clinical communications (limited to 1500 words, 2 figures and 12 references). Brief communications are used when the extent of the investigation or the findings do not warrant a full paper, but are still considered of value to the ophthalmic community.
  • Letters to the editor will be limited to 750 words, including references, and one image / figure / table; letters may cover a variety of topics and these may include but are not restricted to:
    a. Briefly highlighting or commenting on an issue in a previously published paper.
    b. Seeking to generate discussion or awareness of a developing area.

Double-Masked Peer Review Process

Veterinary Ophthalmology uses a double-masked peer review process for all manuscripts (i.e. the reviewers and authors are masked each other's identity). Authors are required to submit BOTH masked and unmasked versions of their main document. It is crucial that authors conscientiously redact identifying information from their manuscripts for a double masked review to be successful. Responsibility for ensuring that manuscripts are adequately masked rests entirely with the authors and not with the Journal.

Please use the following instructions for uploading masked and unmasked versions of your main document:

Version 1 should be uploaded as the Masked Manuscript File. This file will be automatically converted to PDF once uploaded through the online submission system (ScholarOne) and will be made available to the reviewers. This file SHOULD NOT include the following information:
Author name
Author institution details
Author contact details
Conflicts of interest (if declared)
Ethics approval statements that refer to your institution


Version 2 should be uploaded as the UnMasked Manuscript file. This file will only be accessible to the Editorial Staff. This file SHOULD INCLUDE the following information:
Author names
Author institution details
Author contact details
Conflicts of interest (if declared)
Ethics approval statements that refer to your institution

Author Guidelines

Veterinary Ophthalmology uses the guidelines and criteria for authorship of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/browse/roles-and-responsibilities/defining-the-role-of-authors-and-contributors.html). The editorial staff is not responsible for resolving disputes between authors or potential authors of manuscripts submitted or accepted for publication.

Authorship should be based on the following criteria:

  • Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work; AND
  • Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content; AND
  • Final approval of the version to be published; AND
  • Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

Participation solely in the acquisition of funding or the collection of data (such as recruiting cases in multi-center drug trials) does not justify authorship and, except in the case of complex large-scale or multi-center research, the number of authors should usually not exceed six. Contributors who do not qualify as authors should be mentioned under Acknowledgements

Guidelines for Ethical Research in Veterinary Ophthalmology (GERVO)

We require that authors indicate during submission of their manuscript if the study required institutional or governmental approval in the jurisdiction in which it was conducted, and whether such approval was granted.

The Journal reserves the right to decline to publish manuscripts that do not comply with the Guidelines for Ethical Research in Veterinary Ophthalmology (GERVO), such as the appropriate regulatory approval is not reported, the Journal has concerns about the welfare or treatment of animals used in the study, there is reason to believe that animals have been subjected to unnecessary or avoidable pain or distress or the Journal has concerns about involvement of people in the study.

The Journal is not obliged to reveal the basis for such a decision.

The Journal may request further information about care and use of animals, or involvement of people, including evidence of regulatory approval or compliance with local regulations.

Ethical approval for studies involving animals

Authors are requested to follow Guidelines for Ethical Research in Veterinary Ophthalmology (GERVO), specifically for:
- Research involving experimental animals
- Disposition of the experimental animals after study completion
- Zoo and wildlife
- Studies using archived tissues or samples or medical records/retrospective studies
- Use of cadavers
- Client-owned Animals/Clinical Trials

Prior Publication, Plagiarism and self-plagiarism

Manuscripts submitted to Veterinary Ophthalmology may be screened electronically for plagiarism. Veterinary Ophthalmology is a member of CrossCheck, a service offered by CrossRef and powered by iThenticate software. iThenticate is a plagiarism screening service that verifies the originality of content submitted before publication. iThenticate checks submissions against millions of published research papers, and billions of web content.

Manuscripts are accepted for consideration on the understanding that they are being considered for publication solely in Veterinary Ophthalmology and that they have been neither published nor are under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts will be considered for publication with the clear understanding that their contents have not been previously published (abstracts ≤ 250 words presented at scientific meetings are excepted) and have not been submitted or published elsewhere while acceptance by Veterinary Ophthalmology is under consideration.  Authors should not include entire paragraphs from their previous publications in a new submission. For example, sections related to the significance of a condition or background knowledge about the topic should be unique to each publication.

Veterinary Ophthalmology is published in online-only format. This is a proactive step towards reducing the environmental impact caused by the production and distribution of printed journal copies and will allow the journal to invest in further digital development. Published articles will continue to be disseminated quickly through the journal's broad network of indexing in the Web of Science, MEDLINE and Scopus. Articles will also continue to be discoverable through popular search engines such as Google.

Author Contributions 

For all articles, this journal mandates the CRediT (Contribution Roles Taxonomy)—more information is available on our Author Services site. 

Artificial Intelligence Generated Content

Artificial Intelligence Generated Content (AIGC) tools—such as ChatGPT and others based on large language models (LLMs)—cannot be considered capable of initiating an original piece of research without direction by human authors. They also cannot be accountable for a published work or for research design, which is a generally held requirement of authorship (as discussed in the previous section), nor do they have legal standing or the ability to hold or assign copyright. Therefore—in accordance with COPE’s position statement on AI tools—these tools cannot fulfill the role of, nor be listed as, an author of an article. If an author has used this kind of tool to develop any portion of their manuscript for Veterinary Ophthalmology, its use must be described, transparently and in detail, in the Materials and Methods section. The author is fully responsible for the accuracy of any information provided by the tool and for correctly referencing any supporting work on which that information depends. Tools that are used to improve spelling, grammar, and general editing are not included in the scope of these guidelines. The final decision about whether use of an AIGC tool is appropriate or permissible in the circumstances of a submitted manuscript or a published article lies with the journal’s editor.


Veterinary Ophthalmology is part of Wiley’s Early View service. All articles are published online in Early View. These articles are fully peer reviewed, edited and complete – lacking only page numbers and volume/issue – and are considered fully published from the date they first appear online. This date is shown with the article in the online table of contents. Because Early View articles are considered fully complete, changes cannot be made to an article after the online publication date, even if it has not yet appeared in an Issue. Early View articles are given a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which allows the article to be cited and tracked before it is allocated to an issue. After issue publication, the DOI remains valid and can continue to be used to cite and access the article.

Manuscript Style

The manuscripts must be in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx). The manuscript (including footnotes, references, figure legends, and tables) must be double-space typed, using 12-point Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins, and left justification. Original Research papers and Review Articles should usually not be longer than 5000 words. Viewpoint articles and Case reports will not normally exceed 2000 words, and Brief communications 1500 words.

Title Page
The title page should include a descriptive title for the article, the names [first name, initials of middle name(s), surnames], qualifications and affiliations of all authors, and the full postal address, e-mail and telephone number of the author to whom correspondence should be addressed. A suggested running title of not more than 50 characters including spaces should be included.

Abstract and Keywords
The abstract should be on a separate page and should not exceed 250 words. Where possible, the abstract should be structured. Suggested headings for abstracts of primary research are: Objective; Animal studied, Procedure(s), Results, and Conclusions.

Key words are used by indexes and electronic search engines, and should appear after the abstract. Use the heading ‘Key words’, typed in bold and followed by a colon, and then the key words separated by commas. Please provide six key words that are not included in the manuscript title. Also enter the key words where prompted during the submission process.

Example of a manuscript title and a suboptimal example set of key words followed by a better example set:

Title: Cataract surgery in young dogs without other ocular diseases: glaucoma and other complications encountered during a 3-year follow up of 100 cases.

Keywords (suboptimal example because the keywords are already included in the title): cataract, cataract surgery, dog, cataract complication, cataract surgery follow-up, glaucoma

Keywords (potentially better examples for search engine optimization): intraocular surgery, canine, postoperative hypertension, postoperative uveitis, retinal detachment.

Main Text
This should begin on a separate page. Sections within the main text should be appropriately sub-headed: Introduction; Materials and methods, Results, and Discussion. Abbreviations and footnotes should be avoided where possible.


References should be in the AMA style.  For more information about AMA reference style - AMA Manual of Style

All references should be numbered consecutively in order of appearance and should be as complete as possible. In text citations should cite references in consecutive order using Arabic superscript numerals. Sample references follow:

Journal article:

  1. King VM, Armstrong DM, Apps R, Trott JR. Numerical aspects of pontine, lateral reticular, and inferior olivary projections to two paravermal cortical zones of the cat cerebellum. J Comp Neurol 1998;390:537-551.


  1. Voet D, Voet JG. Biochemistry. New York: John Wiley & Sons; 1990. 1223 p.

Please note that journal title abbreviations should conform to the practices of Chemical Abstracts.

Please note that work that has not been accepted for publication and personal communications should not appear in the reference list, but may be referred to in the text (e.g. M. van der Burgh, personal communication). Also, it is the authors’ responsibility to obtain permission from colleagues to include their work as a personal communication.

Search Engine Optimization

Follow the link to view our SEO Author Fact Sheet: https://authorservices.wiley.com/asset/photos/promote.html/SEOforAuthorsLINKS.pdf

Electronic Artwork
Authors must review and follow the figure guidelines with regards to format, size and resolution (TIFF and 300 dpi preferred). Images that fail to adhere to these guidelines or are of insufficient quality will be rejected.  Figures must be uploaded as separate files and not be embedded in the main text file. Please save vector graphics (e.g. line artwork) in Encapsulated Postscript Format (EPS), and bitmap files (e.g. half-tones) in Tagged Image File format (TIFF). Detailed information on our digital illustration standards is available on the Wiley Homepage at: https://authorservices.wiley.com/asset/photos/electronic_artwork_guidelines.pdf

The figures should be referred to as ‘Fig.’ and numbered consecutively in the order in which they are referred to in the text. Captions to figures, giving the appropriate figure number, should be typed on a separate page at the end of the manuscript; captions should not be written on the original drawing or photograph. In the full text online edition of the journal, figure legends may be truncated in abbreviated links to the full screen version. Therefore, the first 100 characters of any legend should inform the reader of key aspects of the figure. Further guidelines regarding the submission of artwork can be found at https://authorservices.wiley.com/asset/photos/electronic_artwork_guidelines.pdf

Image Screening 
Veterinary Ophthalmology utilises Wiley’s Image Screening service. All figures submitted with manuscripts will undergo an integrity check to identify any inappropriately edited or manipulated images. In case of any doubt, raw data will be requested from the authors. Manuscripts will only proceed on the condition that all files comply with the integrity checks. If any file does not comply with our integrity checks, the journal reserves the right to rescind the decision, or, alternatively, you may be contacted to resolve any concerns raised by these checks.

Embedded Rich Media 
Veterinary Ophthalmology has the option for authors to embed rich media (i.e. video and audio) within their final article. These files should be submitted with the manuscript files online, using either the “Embedded Video” or “Embedded Audio” file designation. If the video/audio includes dialogue, a transcript should be included as a separate file. The combined manuscript files, including video, audio, tables, figures, and text must not exceed 350 MB. For full guidance on accepted file types and resolution please see here. 

Ensure each file is numbered (e.g. Video 1, Video 2, etc.). Legends for the rich media files should be placed at the end of the article. 

The content of the video should not display overt product advertising. Educational presentations are encouraged. 

Any narration should be in English, if possible. A typed transcript of any speech within the video/audio should be provided. An English translation of any non-English speech should be provided in the transcript.  

All embedded rich media will be subject to peer review. Editors reserve the right to request edits to rich media files as a condition of acceptance. Contributors are asked to be succinct, and the Editors reserve the right to require shorter video/audio duration. The video/audio should be high quality (both in content and visibility/audibility). The video/audio should make a specific point; particularly, it should demonstrate the features described in the text of the manuscript. 

Participant Consent: It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to seek informed consent from any identifiable participant in the rich media files. Masking a participant’s eyes, or excluded head and shoulders is not sufficient. Please ensure that a consent form (https://authorservices.wiley.com/author-resources/Journal-Authors/licensing/licensing-info-faqs.html) is provided for each participant.  

Clear tables which contain essential data are welcome, however, a complete list of all data and/or case information is discouraged, except to be considered as supplementary data available online only.  Tables should be formatted with the table function in a word processor, such as MS Word, on a separate page with the legend typed above. Column headings should be brief, with units of measurement in parentheses. All abbreviations must be defined in footnotes to the table. Number tables consecutively in the order they occur in the text, with Arabic numerals.

Acknowledgements should be brief and must include reference to sources of financial and logistical support. Author(s) should clear the copyright of material they wish to reproduce from other sources, and this should be acknowledged.

Conflict of Interest

Veterinary Ophthalmology requires that all authors include a conflict of interest statement in their manuscript (in a Conflict of Interest section). Any interest or relationship, financial or otherwise, that might be perceived as influencing an author’s objectivity is considered a potential source of conflict of interest. These must be disclosed when directly relevant or indirectly related to the work that the authors describe in their manuscript. Potential sources of conflict of interest include but are not limited to patent or stock ownership, membership of a company board of directors, membership of an advisory board or committee for a company, and consultancy for or receipt of speaker’s fees from a company. If authors are unsure whether a past or present affiliation or relationship should be disclosed in the manuscript, they can query the editorial office at [email protected]. The existence of a conflict of interest does not preclude publication in this journal. If the authors have no conflict of interest to declare, they must also state this in the manuscript and at submission. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to review this policy with all authors and collectively to list in the manuscript, and in the online submission system ALL pertinent commercial and other relationships.

The above policies are in accordance with the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals produced by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (http://www.icmje.org/).

Peer Review

A peer review process involving at least 2 reviewers who are members of the editorial review board or other veterinarians or scientists with disciplinary expertise is used. Up to one reviewer may be selected based on authors’ recommendations. Authors may suggest potential reviewers that have expertise in the field and can provide an unbiased evaluation. Previous or current mentors, mentees, collaborators, colleagues, or personal relations are not suitable recommendations. Authors can also oppose reviewers who would have a conflict of interest in reviewing their manuscripts. 

The reviewers’ comments are reviewed by an Editorial Board Member who makes a recommendation on the suitability of the report for publication to the editor-in-chief, who makes the final decision. The editors reserve the right to seek consultation on appropriateness of study design, survey instruments, and methods used for statistical analysis of data.

Manuscripts that report studies that are otherwise scientifically sound may be rejected before or after peer review because they lack breadth of appeal, impact, or are outside the interest area of the journal. Likewise, studies that are simply additive to the literature and do not provide substantial discovery, mechanistic insight, challenge dogma, or highlight novel understanding are not likely to be considered suitable for publication.     

Manuscripts that are poorly prepared or written or do not follow ethical guidelines will be returned without peer review. It is the authors’ responsibility to submit manuscripts that are written in a style that enhances readability (clear, direct, concise, with appropriate grammar and spelling). Authors with limited experience in scientific writing in English are encouraged to seek assistance from professional editing services.

Appeals and Complaints 

Authors may appeal an editorial decision if they feel that the decision to reject was based on either a significant misunderstanding of a core aspect of the manuscript, a failure to understand how the manuscript advances the literature or concerns regarding the manuscript-handling process. Differences in opinion regarding the novelty or significance of the reported findings are not considered as grounds for appeal. To raise an appeal, please contact the journal by email, quoting your manuscript ID number and explaining your rationale for the appeal. The editor’s decision following an appeal consideration is final.  

To raise a complaint regarding editorial staff, policy or process please contact the journal in the first instance. If you believe further support outside the journal’s management is necessary, please refer to Wiley’s Best Practice Guidelines on Research Integrity and Publishing Ethics. 

Refer and Transfer Program 

Wiley believes that no valuable research should go unshared. This journal participates in Wiley’s Refer & Transfer program. If your manuscript is not accepted, you may receive a recommendation to transfer your manuscript to another suitable Wiley journal, either through a referral from the journal’s editor or through our Transfer Desk Assistant.

NIH Policy

Wiley supports authors by posting the accepted version of articles by NIH grant-holders to PubMed Central. The accepted version is the version that incorporates all amendments made during peer review, but prior to the publisher's copyediting and typesetting. This accepted version will be made publicly available 12 months after publication in the journal. The NIH mandate applies to all articles based on research that has been wholly or partially funded by the NIH and that are accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008. For more information about the NIH's Public Access Policy, visit http://publicaccess.nih.gov

Open Access

Available to authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article available to non-subscribers upon publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article. With open access, the author, the author's funding agency, or the author's institution pays a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Hybrid Open Access, as well as deposited in the funding agency's preferred archive.

Prior to acceptance there is no requirement to inform an Editorial Office that you intend to publish your paper open access if you do not wish to. All open access articles are treated in the same way as any other article. They go through the journal's standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit.
