Optics Express articles to be indexed on National Library of Medicine's MEDLINE

March 19, 2008, Washington, DC--Optics Express, a leading technical journal published by the Optical Society of America (OSA), has been selected for indexing and inclusion in the U.S. National Library of Medicine's MEDLINE (Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online) bibliographic database.

Optics Express is the fourth OSA journal to be selected, joining the Journal of the Optical Society of America A: Optics, Image Science and Vision; Applied Optics; and Optics Letters.

The NLM's Literature Selection Technical Review Committee, composed of experts in the field of biomedicine, is responsible for reviewing and recommending the journal titles the NLM should index. MEDLINE database users include researchers, educators, health care practitioners, administrators and students who use the system to locate research findings on biomedical topics from all disciplines.

"I am delighted that Optics Express has been included in the pantheon of journals recognized by MEDLINE. More researchers and practitioners will now benefit from the short time-to-publication, open-source character of this Web-based journal," said Martijn de Sterke, editor-in-chief, Optics Express, University of Sydney, Australia. "Undoubtedly this inclusion will spur further growth of the journal, which has already benefitted tremendously from many high-quality biomedical optics papers."

Optics Express is an open access electronic journal with a rapid time–to-publication. It is the top-ranked journal in optics, based on ISI Impact Factor. Optics Express publishes results in all areas of optics, but increasingly content has been focusing on innovative developments in biomedical research, including optical coherence tomography, diffuse optical tomography, near-infrared spectroscopy, microscopy, laser scanning ophthalmoscopy, tissue optics and optical cell manipulation.

MEDLINE is expected to begin indexing Optics Express' biomedical papers by the end of the year, according to NLM's standard process. For more information on MEDLINE, click here.
