Policy, procedures, and goals at JOSA A: Editorial

Franco Gori, P. Scott Carney

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The journals of the Optical Society (OSA) are a natural extension of the services the society provides to its members and to the larger mission of the OSA to promote the generation, application and archiving of knowledge in optics and photonics. The members particularly in JOSA A, are dedicated to archiving advances in the field, to providing content that will serve as a reference, and to enabling the work of researchers in the future. The editorial staff of JOSA A strongly discourages the resubmission to JOSA A of papers previously rejected by other OSA journals for scientific objections. Transfers of manuscripts by the editors, either from Optica after review, or from any OSA journal for reasons of scope, do not require an additional cover letter unless there are reviewer comments to be addressed.
