Paper Publication in JEOS:RP

Presenters at EOSAM are kindly invited to consider the submission of a manuscript of their research to the EOS open-access on-line journal JEOS: RP (Journal of the European Optical Society, Rapid Publications)
JEOS:RP publishes articles about recent scientific research and technological innovation as well as review papers about a topic in science or innovation from the recent past. A contribution should be original and will be subjected to the journal’s standard anonymous peer review process for scientific quality. The average time-to-publication of the journal is of the order of 75 days.


For maximizing visibility during the event, we offer companies and other organizations sponsoring and advertising opportunities. Several options provide your company with versatile possibilities for publicity, not only onsite but online and in printed marketing materials before and during the event.
