Journal of Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS, and MOEMS • Open AccessNew Open Access Option for SPIE Journals
Like most peer-reviewed scientific journals, subscriptions and download fees cover only a portion of the costs of publishing the Journal of Microlithography, MEMS, and MOEMS (JM3). And also like most journals, JM3 has covered some of these costs by asking its authors to voluntarily pay page charges. A large fraction of our authors accept these charges and receive just one benefit-the knowledge that they are supporting a journal that is important to their work and their scientific community. For every author who has supported us in that way over the years, I thank you. I am both grateful and encouraged to see so many in our community take a global, long-term view that a publication such as JM3 is worth supporting.
