Redesigned SPIE Digital Library

Here are some of the new SPIE Digital Library features:

  • As a new edition to the conference papers SPIE presents conference presentations, videos containing the audio and slides for most new presentations. Many of them also include full-text papers.
  • You may create a free personal account that allows you to save citations and sign up for different types of e-mail alerts.
  • The mobile version of the website has been redesigned. You may access your institution’s subscription from your personal computer at home or your mobile device. Simply sign into your personal account while on your organization’s network (once every 90 days) and you will have full off-site access.

Open Access for SPIE Journals

The Max Planck Society provides the open access option of SPIE (The International Society for Optics and Photonics).
Therefor, as of now the MPS pays the voluntary page charges centrally for all articles published by Max Planck authors in SPIE journals (proceedings are not included!). So that the open access articles will be available on the publisher’s website.

The following journals are included:

  • Journal of Astronomical Telescopes, Instruments, and Systems
  • Journal of Biomedical Optics
  • Journal of Electronic Imaging
  • Journal of Medical Imaging
  • Journal of Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS, and MOEMS
  • Neurophotonics
  • Optical Engineering
  • Journal of Applied Remote Sensing
  • Journal of Nanophotonics
  • Journal of Photonics for Energy

If you would like your next SPIE article to be published in open access, here is how it works:

  • Authors are asked about their intention to publish as open access when they submit manuscripts to SPIE journals.
  • Max Planck authors will be identified and it will be indicated that the MPS bears the costs for open access publishing.
  • Then you need do nothing more to get your article published as Open Access.
