Welcome to Biomedical Optics Express We are very pleased to introduce the inaugural issue of Biomedical Optics Express. Published by The Optical Society, Biomedical Optics Express is a new peer-reviewed journal focusing on biomedical optics and biophotonics. Biomedical Optics Express is intended to become OSA’s principal outlet for serving the biomedical optics community with rapid, open-access publication of biomedical content. All published articles will be freely available on the Internet immediately upon publication, and archived by one of the world’s most distinguished professional societies. Many features of this new journal mirror and expand upon those of the pioneering and highly successful OSA publication, Optics Express. These include rapid, online, open-access publication and availability of free color figures, movies, animations, and live reference links. HTML with MathML (XHTML) versions of each Biomedical Optics Express article, suitable for viewing on a range of electronic devices, are published along with the formatted PDF. Additional new features of particular interest to biomedical authors will include Interactive Science Publishing (ISP) capability for online visualization of large and/or reference datasets and automated submission of published articles to PubMed Central to assist in compliance with U.S. federal open-access requirements. The journal’s web presence will include innovative features such as enhanced graphical content, author videos, links to upcoming meetings and events, and a compendium of biomedical content throughout OSA’s journals in the Virtual Journal for Biomedical Optics (VJBO). The journal scope encompasses theoretical modeling and simulations, technology development, biomedical studies and clinical applications. Please note that this scope is somewhat broader than that of OSA’s other journals, in that innovation in the applications, as well as the development, of biophotonic technologies are welcome.
