Manuscripts must be submitted through the journal’s website http://www.journalagent.com/beyoglu/. Paper manuscript submissions are not accepted. Full-length papers comprise the major part of each issue. Reviews are accepted for publication only at the invitation of the Editors.
It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that the English used in their manuscript is correct, both grammatically and stylistically, before submission.
Beyoglu Eye Journal strives to publish papers of high quality regarding clinical research, epidemiology, anatomy, biophysics, biochemistry, developmental biology, microbiology, and immunology related to the eye and vision.
Policy of screening for plagiarism
The manuscripts are scanned by the Publisher’s Office using the iThenticate program for determination of plagiarism and non-ethical situations.
Submitted manuscripts that pass preliminary control are evaluated by editor-in-chief for their originality, methodology, the importance of the subject covered and compliance with the journal scope. For the manuscripts that are considered for publication an unbiased, double-blinded peer-review process is initiated by associate editors. The manuscripts are sent to two or more independent peer reviewers who are expert in the field. The reviewers are asked to provide detailed, constructive comments that will help the editor to make a decision, and the authors to improve their manuscript. The requested changes are made by the authors using the online manuscript submission system. Associate editor sends the original manuscript, the revised manuscript and all the reviewers’ comments together with his recommendation to the editor-in-chief.
Editor-in-chief reviews the manuscript and makes the final decision. He might accept the manuscript, reject the manuscript or request further revisions.
In case of manuscripts submitted by editors or by the editorial board members of the journal, the editorial board will invite an external and independent editor to manage the evaluation processes of these manuscripts. The reviewers are required to notify the editor of any kinds of conflicts of interest with respect to the research, the authors and/or the research funders. They must ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept as confidential and must report to the Editor-in-Chief if they are aware of copyright infringement and plagiarism on the author’s side.
Beyoglu Eye Journal takes into consideration the Committee on Publication Ethics - COPE guidelines and flow charts for peer review process.
Submissions need to be of sufficient editing quality that they will be easily interpreted by the readership of the Journal. If submitted work does not meet this standard, it will be returned to the authors. The Journal follows the AMA Manual of Style for manuscripts submitted to biomedical journals.

Title page. The first page (title page) of your manuscript file must include the following information:
Abstract. A structured abstract of no more than 350 words is to be provided, divided into the following sections: Objectives, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. Avoid abbreviations, diagrams, and reference to the text in the abstract. At least three and maximum of six key words should be identified for indexing. List the key words beneath the abstract in alphabetical order. Use terms from the Medical Subject Headings list from lndex Medicus whenever possible. A library of terms is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/meshhome.html.
Main Text. Divide the text into the following sections: Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion and Conclusion. Use commas (,) to separate thousands and full stop (.) for decimals (e.g. 12,354.55). Include tables in the manuscript file, after the references. Number all figures (graphs, charts, photographs, and illustrations) in the order of their citation in the text. Figures must be submitted as separate files and not embedded in the Word document.
Funding. List all sources of funding for the research.
Declaration of Interests. Declare any competing interests for each author. All authors must disclose any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence (bias) their work. It is the sole responsibility of authors to disclose any affiliation with any organization with a financial interest, direct or indirect, in the subject matter or materials discussed in the manuscript (such as consultancies, employment, paid expert testimony, honoraria, speakers bureaus, retainers, stock options or ownership, patents or patent applications or travel grants) that may affect the conduct or reporting of the work submitted. All sources of funding for research are to be explicitly stated. If uncertain as to what might be considered a potential conflict of interest, authors should err on the side of full disclosure.
All submissions to the journal must include full disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as presenting a potential conflict of interest. If there are no conflicts of interest, authors should state that there are none. This must be stated at the point of submission (within the manuscript after the main text under a subheading "Declaration of interest" and where available within the appropriate field on the journal’s Manuscript Central site). This may be made available to reviewers and will appear in the published article at the discretion of the Editors or Publisher.
If no conflict is declared, the following statement will be attached to all articles: Declaration of interest. The authors report no conflicts of interest. The authors alone are responsible for the content and writing of the paper.
The intent of this policy is not to prevent authors with these relationships from publishing work, but rather to adopt transparency such that readers can make objective judgments on conclusions drawn.
