Abstract

I was Optics Express’ Editor-in-Chief from 2007 to 2012. During this period, the number of yearly submissions almost doubled from 3,385 (in 2007) to 6,207 (in 2012). Here, I reflect on some of the more detailed data, outline the response to this rapid growth, and point to some of the issues that arose during my tenure.
