Optics Express and Applied Optics welcome submissions to a feature issue on "Light, Energy and the Environment" in conjunction with the Light, Energy and the Environment Congress in Sentosa, Singapore, on 5-8 November 2018. The journals welcome submissions only from the oral and poster papers accepted for the meeting.
This joint feature issue aims to highlight recent advances that were presented at the five collocated meetings:
Authors may choose between Applied Optics and Optics Express when submitting to the joint feature issue, but authors should recognize the differences between them and select the appropriate journal. The guest editors could recommend that the manuscript transfer to the other journal as needed. For Applied Optics, submissions will emphasize the practical applications of science and technology. All other topics will be better suited for Optics Express. Papers will appear in their respective journals. Additionally, a combined table of contents of papers from both journals will appear once all papers are published.
All submissions need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer review processes of the journals. The standard Optics Express and Applied Optics publication charges will apply to all published articles. To be eligible for publication, an expanded conference paper needs to add value to the original conference proceedings. Please see OSA's guidelines on expanded conference papers for details.
Please prepare manuscripts according to the usual guidelines for submission to Optics Express or Applied Optics and upload files through OSA's electronic submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the Feature Issue on Light, Energy and the Environment 2018.
