New open-access journal SPIE Reviews begins publication

03 February 2010

BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA -- SPIE Reviews, a new open-access journal published by SPIE, has launched on the SPIE Digital Library. The journal is edited by William T. Rhodes, professor of electrical engineering and associate director of the Imaging Technology Center at Florida Atlantic University, and emeritus professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

The new journal publishes original, in-depth review articles on emerging and evolving fields in applied optics and photonics of use to researchers as well as industry innovators.

Topics covered in SPIE Reviews' first papers include extended depth-of-focus optical systems, Bragg grating refractive index sensors, and negatively refracting chiral metamaterials.

The journal also features links to review articles from other SPIE journals in the SPIE Digital Library, the world's largest collection of optics literature. Articles in the SPIE Digital Library incorporate features such as CrossRef-linked bibliographies, multimedia, bookmarking tools, and RSS feeds.

SPIE Reviews joins the open-access SPIE Letters virtual journal as an additional open-access offering in the SPIE Digital Library. The collection also includes articles available by subscription or pay-per-view from SPIE's other six journals and the Proceedings of SPIE.

Articles for SPIE Reviews are invited by members of the editorial board and the editor. Proposals from prospective authors also will be considered by the editor. Proposals and inquiries may be sent to journals@spie.org. Additional information is available at spie.org/reviews.

SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, was founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. Serving more than 188,000 constituents from 138 countries, the Society advances emerging technologies through interdisciplinary information exchange, continuing education, publications, patent precedent, and career and professional growth. SPIE annually organizes and sponsors approximately 25 major technical forums, exhibitions, and education programs in North America, Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific, and supports scholarships, grants, and other education programs around the world.
