Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of ophthalmic pathology is confined to the work of a select number of ophthalmologists and pathologists worldwide. Nevertheless, structures as diverse as the eyelids, conjunctiva, orbit, and the diverse tissues of the globe, cornea, sclera, uvea, retina, lens, and optic nerve can give rise to a host of different diseases but even significant advances in the knowledge of anatomy, histology, diagnostic histopathology, pathophysiology, or (epi) genetics prove to be difficult to publish. This Special Issue, with its focus on molecular-level investigations, invites authors to submit tissue-based translational research that aims to elucidate the molecular pathophysiology of diseases of the eye and orbit. Rare as these may be, a better understanding of molecular histopathology and pathophysiology is essential for improving the diagnosis and, ultimately, treatment of patients.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
