Announcing Advanced Optical Materials: The new journal section from Wiley-VCH’s Advanced Materials collection
Wiley-VCH, an imprint of John Wiley & Sons, announced the launch of Advanced Optical Materials, the new section in Advanced Materials collection, publishing high-impact papers on all aspects of light-matter interactions.
Advanced Optical Materials will cover breakthrough discoveries and fundamental research in photonics, plasmonics, metamaterials, and all important aspects of this burgeoning research field.
"I have been missing a journal of intermediate-high impact because we photonics people have a hard time publishing highly interesting work not qualifying for the 'big' generic journals," says Editorial Board member Prof. Cefe López (Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid). "This means that much excellent research goes unheeded because there isn't the right channel to reach the reader. I am sure Advanced Optical Materials will be welcomed by many researchers."
Advanced Optical Materials will publish communications, full papers, and reviews. All papers will be free-to-access for the first two years to maximize their visibility. Authors can already submit papers now for consideration in Advanced Optical Materials by visiting http://www.advopticalmat.de/call-for-papers.
"Like Advanced Materials, the new Advanced Optical Materials will provide our authors and readers with the best combination of quality, speed, and service," says Dr. Peter Gregory, Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Materials. "Our goal is to provide a high-impact forum for researchers working at the intersection of materials science and optical physics."
Dr. Tim Adams, Editor of Advanced Optical Materials, explained, "We've watched the growth of this field, and now we think the time is right for a journal that publishes the best papers on photonics, plasmonics, optoelectronics, and more. Our goal is to make Advanced Optical Materials a must-read journal for both materials scientists and physicists."
The first issue of Advanced Optical Materials will appear in March 2012 as a section in Advanced Materials (2010 ISI Impact Factor: 10.880). To be informed when the first issue is published, sign up for alerts at http://www.advopticalmat.de/.
