Vision is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original articles, critical reviews, research notes, and short communications on all aspects of human and biological visual systems. There is no restriction on the length of papers as we encourage researchers to publish their innovative ideas and results in as much detail as possible. Additionally, we encourage authors to publish related electronic files or software along with their publication as “Supplementary Material”. To guarantee a rapid refereeing and editorial process, Vision follows standard publication practices in the natural sciences.
