Journal of the Optical Society of Korea Added to OSA’s Optics InfoBase
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1—The Optical Society (OSA) is pleased to announce that Optics InfoBase, its online library of journals, co-published journals and conference proceedings, has added the Journal of the Optical Society of Korea (JOSK) to its content offerings. JOSK is the leading English-language optics journal in Korea, and publishes peer-reviewed, open-access content in all areas of optical science and technology.
“We are thrilled to be reaching a significantly wider community of researchers in the optics and photonics field through this partnership with Optics InfoBase,” said Byoungho Lee, editor-in-chief of JOSK. “I am confident the content of JOSK will be of added interest to those already using Optics InfoBase for their research needs.”
JOSK was launched in 1997 and is published in English by the Optical Society of Korea (OSK) four times per year. JOSK features papers in all technical fields of optics, including optical materials, optical devices, optical systems, and topics related to theoretical and experimental aspects of new principles.
“OSA has collaborated with the Optical Society of Korea for many years and we are delighted to be partnering with them in the publishing arena,” said OSA CEO Elizabeth Rogan. “By providing Optics InfoBase users with an additional open-access journal, OSA is able to offer even more diverse optics and photonics content to its global audience.”
Uniting more than 106,000 professionals from 134 countries, the Optical Society (OSA) brings together the global optics community through its programs and initiatives. Since 1916 OSA has worked to advance the common interests of the field, providing educational resources to the scientists, engineers and business leaders who work in the field by promoting the science of light and the advanced technologies made possible by optics and photonics. OSA publications, events, technical groups and programs foster optics knowledge and scientific collaboration among all those with an interest in optics and photonics.
