Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts that use the special features of Biomedical Optics Express that are particularly germane to the biomedical content, such as inclusion of external high-resolution image files, movies, and interactive science publishing (ISP).
OSA ISP is an image viewing application developed by OSA in cooperation with Kitware, Inc., and the National Library of Medicine. The software allows interactive viewing of a wide range of 2D and 3D image data formats including DICOM, TIFF, and JPEG images. Authors can use the tool to build custom views of image data that can be saved, integrated with peer-reviewed articles, and shared with readers through the OSA journals.
Questions about the OSA ISP software can be directed to ISPHelp@osa.org or (202) 416-1938.
