Research on research.

The AOA Committee on Basic and Applied Research sent a questionnaire to all Oregon optometrists requesting information on their attitudes toward 1) research areas to be emphasized in the schools, 2) funding sources for research, and 3) optimum ways of reporting research results. The majority of the O.D.s responding felt that new equipment and techniques, contact lenses, and vision training should be given first priority as research areas, and felt that 5% or more of their AOA dues should be devoted to research. The Journal of the AOA was reported to be the most helpful of all the optometric journals in presenting research information and the vast majority of O.D.s responding selected a complete article with an abstract as the most appropriate report style.[1]
