BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA — SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, today announced an extension of its recent 10% price reduction for SPIE Digital Library and SPIE journal institutional subscriptions.
The discount was originally implemented last year in recognition of the challenges facing the library and research communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The SPIE Digital Library, the world's largest collection of optics and photonics applied research, comprises more than 540,000 publications. SPIE is committed to enabling the broadest possible dissemination of information to researchers, engineers, and academics worldwide.
"Part of the Society's mission is to support the global optics and photonics community," said SPIE CEO Kent Rochford. "We are always happy to be able to contribute in a way that will help ensure the sharing and dissemination of research, and particularly so during the ongoing pandemic situation."
The discount applies to both new and renewing SPIE Digital Library institutional subscriptions as well as institutional subscriptions to individual SPIE journals invoicing before 1 July 2022. Pricing for all other SPIE publications will remain flat for 2022.
SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, an educational not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based science, engineering, and technology. The Society serves more than 258,000 constituents from 184 countries, offering conferences and their published proceedings, continuing education, books, journals, and the SPIE Digital Library. In 2020, SPIE provided over $5 million in community support including scholarships and awards, outreach and advocacy programs, travel grants, public policy, and educational resources. www.spie.org.
