Optometry and Vision Science is soliciting papers for a Feature issue
scheduled for late Spring 2005.

"Vision and Driving"

The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2004.

A feature issue provides the opportunity for your work to be published
alongside similar subject matter. Past feature issues of OVS have included a
number of important and highly-cited papers. For example, the 20 or so papers
published in the 1999 feature issues on myopia have been cited 300 times.

This feature issue will focus on recent research activity directed at
developing more appropriate means of assessing driving performance related to
vision through:

* Epidemiology of driver safety and vision impairment/eye disease
* On-the-road assessments of vision and driving behavior
* Sophisticated driving simulator performance and vision

This research is part of overall attempts to better characterize the
relationship between driver characteristics (age, vision cognition,
self-perception and insight and risk taking) and driver behavior.

Manuscripts must be submitted online at ovs.edmgr.com and should be prepared
according to the instructions to authors at this web site. Indicate that your
paper is being submitted for this feature issue. Manuscripts will be
subjected to peer review under the editorial guidance of Joanna Wood and
Cynthia Owsley, who will work with the Editor-in-Chief and the Managing

Thank you for your consideration.
