OPN Centennial eBooklets

These four commemorative eBooklets tell OSA’s story and where the society (as well as the ptics and photonics field) is headed.


1. OSA's Century of Optics eBook and the OPN eBooklet series have been added to the Optics InfoBase Premium package.

2. The Journal of Display Technology will cease publishing effective 31 December 2016, yet backfile content will remain in select packages (see pages 12 and 14).

3. As previously communicated, effective 1 January 2017, access to OSA's journal backfile content will become a separate product. Subscribers to any of OSA's Print + Online Combination, E-Combination, and Optics InfoBase packages will continue to receive complimentary access to the full backfile product for each title in the package.

Organizations subscribing to individual OSA titles will receive complimentary access to content from the last 10 years (2007-2017). Additionally, access to all backfile content is available via subscription or via the purchase of a single title Digital Archive.
