Optical Engineering • Open AccessCall for Special Sections and Some Good Paper Writing Guidance
Optical Engineering has had some outstanding special sections over the past few years and some that were not so great. To me, the key is the guest editors who provide the energy behind the special section. A good solid special section has around 10 to 20 papers all within the scope of a single subject. The subject must be interesting, timely, and important. We have had special sections with upwards of 30 thoroughly reviewed papers, and these specials have provided a great reference to scientist and engineers working in a particular field.
