ASCO’s journal Optometric Education is undergoing some changes and will emerge as a more technologically advanced and user-friendly publication with its Summer 2015 issue in July.
The journal will appear online in a new format, equipped with new digital capabilities that will make its content more easily searchable via Google Scholar and other search engines. All content will be available as a web page, eliminating the need to open or download a PDF file. The updates will simplify the finding and sharing of information for students and practitioners and improve the reading experience on all devices, including smartphones and tablets.
The updates also give ASCO corporate contributors and other supporters a new way to direct readers to their websites via a simple click-through. In addition, the new format and capabilities open opportunities for future discussions and forums online.
