(28 April 2014, Bellingham, Washington, USA) Research articles by authors at Max Planck Society institutes that are published in SPIE journals will be open access under a new agreement with SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. Under the agreement, the Max Planck Society will pay open access fees for articles submitted by researchers at its institutes to any of the ten SPIE journals.
SPIE journals are part of the SPIE Digital Library, which contains more than 400,000 articles from SPIE peer-reviewed journals, conference proceedings, and books, with approximately 18,000 new research articles added each year. Abstracts are freely searchable, and a rapidly increasing number of full journal articles are published with open access.
