Journals

SPIE Journals publish peer-reviewed articles on applied research in optics and photonics. Covering topics such as optical engineering, electronic imaging, biomedical optics, microlithography, remote sensing, and nanophotonics, SPIE Journals are available by subscription. SPIE also publishes open-access articles on important emerging technology areas in SPIE Letters and SPIE Reviews.

Proceedings

The latest innovations in research and technology are captured in Proceedings of SPIE. These original research papers presented at SPIE conferences are among the most cited references in patent literature and are available two to four weeks after each event.

Subscribe

The SPIE Digital Library is available by annual subscription. Personal subscriptions are a significant savings over single-paper purchases and SPIE Members save even more. Libraries can license the complete SPIE Digital Library and eBook collection.

Books

SPIE eBooks bring valuable SPIE Press titles - monographs and reference works, field guides, and tutorial texts - to researchers' desktops. At least 15 new titles and editions are added to the collection each year.

Author Profiles

Many author links point to profiles with a full listing of the author’s SPIE publications and conference activities, as well as other professional information. Where a profile for an author does not exist, the link searches the SPIE Digital Library for other papers by that author. Authors can update or create their profiles on SPIE.org.

Open Access

In 2014 SPIE adopted a Gold Open Access author choice program applicable to new articles published in SPIE journals. Open access articles display an open access logo and are accessible to all readers. Read more information about this program.
