Journal of Biomedical Optics • Open AccessNew Open Access Option for JBO
The Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO) has a new benefit for authors who support the journal through payment of voluntary page charges. Starting in January 2013, research articles for which such page charges are paid will gain open access immediately at publication. All review and tutorial articles will continue to enjoy unconditional open access. Open access will enable anyone to read your article online at no charge and should lead to more awareness of your research and may result in more citations. In addition, authors will retain copyright for open access articles through a Creative Commons attribution license (CC-BY "gold open access"; see http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/). This is the type of license that many employers and research-funding agencies prefer or require.
