The BIOJ is the official journal of the British and Irish Orthoptic Society. The BIOS was founded in 1937. BIOS is a professional and educational body for the UK and Republic of Ireland representing orthoptists. Orthoptics is a world-wide profession, and the BIOS is recognised as being a leader in both education and clinical practice.
The BIOJ invites submissions relating to original research, review articles, case reports and scientific letters to the editor in areas related to clinical ocular motility, visual function, amblyopia, binocular vision and strabismus. The journal will accept submissions from a wide variety of disciplines, including orthoptists, optometrists, ophthalmologists, and vision technicians, among others.
Dr Gemma Arblaster has taken over as editor of the BIOJ from Dr Jill Carlton.
Thank you to Jill Carlton for all her hard work and dedication to the role of editor of the BIOJ. Jill has moved the journal forward during her editorship, taking the journal online and onto several indexing services, including PubMed Central (PMC).
Gemma is a Lecturer in Orthoptics at the University of Sheffield and a Specialist Orthoptist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHSFT.
