Call for Papers for the 2018 edition of JPEVI

Dear OMAA members,

Please see attached the Call for Papers for the 2018 edition of JPEVI. From 2018, we are aiming to extend the readership of the Journal by ensuring it is available electronically on the SPEVI website. We are also exploring other electronic database options to increase readership.

It is critical that we continue to publish high quality research and practice within the field of vision impairment. I am very happy to discuss or assist if you feel you need some assistance in how to put together a suitable paper.

For your information, the 2017 issue of JPEVI is in the final stages of publication and will be sent to all SPEVI members very shortly.

Dr Bronwen Scott

Convening Editor, JPEVI
