Since September 2022, Hong Kong Journal of Ophthalmology has changed the mode of publication to 'continuous publication mode'. Once approved, articles are published online first before they are published in print. This helps to speed up the dissemination of ophthalmic knowledge through the Journal. Fellows and trainees of the College of Ophthalmologists of Hong Kong are advised to set up your login accounts in the website so that you can receive notifications for publication of new issue in future. We have applied to be indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals. We look forward to your continuous support of our Journal on reviewing and submitting articles.Read more about Continuous publication mode

- Original articles (including, but not limited to, prospective or retrospective clinical studies, observational studies, epidemiological studies, basic science studies, meta-analysis, etc) published in the HKJO during the year will automatically enter the selection process.
