Our Vision By listening to researchers and librarians, tracking new technologies, and seeking ways to better serve our technical communities, we have identified opportunities to enrich and enhance the SPIE Digital Library: – Educational materials – Deeper XML and taxonomic tagging for connecting information – Related content such as patents, supplemental data and images, links to other highly relevant content – Mobile access and interaction at conferences – Multimedia
SPIE’s New “Gold” Open Access Program Starting January 2013, immediate “gold” OA for journal authors paying voluntary page charges — $100/page (8 pg avg); less than most other journals — Authors can publish without paying page charges — Creative Commons CC-BY-NC license — Non-OA papers and backfile require subscription — Copyediting and typesetting included — Preprints of accepted articles coming in 2013 — Subscription prices reduced as OA adoption grows — Journals with ~80-90% OA adoption by authors become fully open access, full backfile made free.
