SLACK Incorporated Announces Journal of Refractive Surgery Case Reports; Issues Call for Papers

April 05, 2021

[Thorofare, NJ] – SLACK Incorporated, an independent STM publisher of leading health care journals, is pleased to announce an immediate call for papers in preparation for the April 2021 launch of the open-access, digital Journal of Refractive Surgery Case Reports (JRS Case Reports). Edited by J. Bradley Randleman, MD, the quarterly, peer-reviewed Journal will include high-quality case reports that focus on research as related to the clinical practice of refractive surgery and lens-based procedures.

A companion title to the highly ranked Journal of Refractive Surgery, JRS Case Reports is the official open-access journal of the International Society of Refractive Surgery (ISRS), a partner of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. JRS Case Reports is dedicated to the exploration of individual patient cases describing complex diagnostic dilemmas and compelling surgical techniques. Detailed information for author submissions and article processing charges can be found at

In an effort to recognize early-career researchers, the Journal will also publish case reports drawn from the International Society of Refractive Surgery’s Annual Externship Program. The top papers from the program will be published free of charge in the Journal.

“The Journal of Refractive Surgery receives so many case report submissions worthy of publication that we want our readers to have access to see and learn from,” said Dr. Randleman. “The launching of this open-access journal will provide authors with the opportunity to include their work in a publication that will have their cases identified in search engines and available for any reader interested in refractive surgery.”

“Launching the Journal of Refractive Surgery Case Reports is an incredible opportunity for authors to showcase their findings and for anyone interested in refractive surgery to deepen their understanding,” said SLACK Incorporated Senior Vice President Stephanie Arasim Portnoy. “SLACK and the ISRS agree it will be a welcome addition to the collective literature.”
