We recognize that the mission of our readers is the application of new knowledge to the treatment of eye disease. The acquisition of this new knowledge is the mission of our authors. And getting that information to you quickly and accurately is the mission of the Archives. With this issue,1 we initiate the online ahead of print publication of time-sensitive studies. These are studies that we believe are important enough to be of immediate benefit to your patients and/or of immediate significance to vision scientists. In doing this, we will not compromise our commitment to excellent peer review and copy-editing services for each manuscript. Articles selected for the online ahead of print option will appear 2 months prior to print publication in the journal.
