OPEN CALLS FOR PAPERS
Information on upcoming publications with open paper and poster submissions for the IEEE Photonics Society.
IEEE Photonics Journal is an open access, online-only rapid publication archival journal of top-quality research at the forefront of photonics. Contributions addressing issues ranging from fundamental understanding to emerging technologies and applications are within the scope of the Journal.
IEEE Photonics Journal is published online only. This platform offers capabilities to enhance published articles; all articles are published in color. Authors have the opportunity to submit supplemental material which may include but is not limited to: multimedia presentations, simulations, webinars, etc. Authors can also store their data in IEEE DataPort, and receive a DOI for their dataset https://ieee-dataport.org. In their final form, all articles contain a cover page with a “Graphic Abstract.”
The journal offers a thorough review process that is a signature of IEEE Publications. Upon acceptance papers receive a Digital Object Identifier and are published in the Early Access section on IEEE Xplore https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/. At this stage, papers are fully citable. The final published version of the papers is copy edited by IEEE to ensure higher production quality.
Breakthroughs in the generation of light and its control and utilization have given rise to the field of Photonics; a rapidly expanding area of science and technology with major technological and economic impacts. Photonics integrates quantum electronics and optics to accelerate progress in the generation of novel photon sources and in their utilization in emerging applications at the micro- and nano-scales spanning from the far-infrared/THz to the x-ray region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
