SPIE journals are dedicated to advancing the science and application of light and light-based technologies. All published journal articles have undergone rigorous peer review as well as professional copyediting and typesetting. Papers can be read online or downloaded as a PDF. All SPIE journals feature e-first rapid online publishing. Open access articles are clearly marked by the open access symbol.

Announcement:  Both the Journal of Biomedical Optics and Neurophotonics became fully open access journals in January 2019. All content in both journals is now freely available.
