SPIE and CLP publish inaugural issue of Advanced Photonics Nexus
BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA — Advanced Photonics Nexus, a new international, Gold Open Access journal co-published by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and Chinese Laser Press (CLP), has published its inaugural issue.
Advanced Photonics Nexus, accessible online in the SPIE Digital Library, as well as on CLP's Researching platform, publishes novel results of high significance and broad interest in all areas of optics and photonics. The journal's focus is on original papers, letters, and review articles that reflect important advances in fundamental and applied aspects of optics and photonics. Advanced Photonics Nexus is a sibling journal of the highly selective international journal Advanced Photonics; like its sibling publication, Advanced Photonics Nexus ensures fast-track publication of high-quality submissions. Research areas include but are not limited to imaging systems, metamaterials, nanophotonics, optical fibers, quantum optics, ultrafast optics, biophotonics, and lasers.
The journal's Co-Editors-in-Chief are Xiao-Cong (Larry) Yuan, of Shenzhen University, Anatoly Zayats of King's College London, and Weibiao Chen, of the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics.
“One of the meanings of ‘nexus’ is a central or focal point,” Zayats noted regarding this new co-publishing venture. “We hope that this new journal will be a focal point for our existing as well as new authors and readers across all fields of optics.”
Advanced Photonics Nexus represents the third publication partnership between SPIE and CLP. In addition to the co-published sibling journal Advanced Photonics, the two organizations earlier this year also launched Photonics Insights, an invite-only, Diamond Open Access journal, featuring review articles that present and evaluate recent advances in the core subjects of photonics.
“Advanced Photonics Nexus will provide a valuable complement to the highly selective Advanced Photonics journal,” said SPIE Journals Manager Gwen Weerts. “We’re happy to be partnering with Chinese Laser Press on these journals in service to the community of photonics researchers.”
The SPIE Digital Library, the world's largest collection of optics and photonics applied research, comprises more than 565,000 publications.
SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, brings engineers, scientists, students, and business professionals together to advance light-based science and technology. The Society, founded in 1955, connects and engages with our global constituency through industry-leading conferences and exhibitions; publications of conference proceedings, books, and journals in the SPIE Digital Library; and career-building opportunities. Over the past five years, SPIE has contributed more than $22 million to the international optics community through our advocacy and support, including scholarships, educational resources, travel grants, endowed gifts, and public-policy development. www.spie.org.
