With this issue Optics Express begins Volume 5 of publication, and continues to set international standards for electronic publishing.

Authors around the world are learning about, and then taking advantage of, our exceptionally rapid turn-around. The average time-to-publication in Optics Express, including two peer reviews, is many months shorter than normal scientific journals and approximately two months shorter than what is available in familiar letters journals.

Articles in Optics Express are being cited in the highest-impact journals of physical science; and for the past 3 volumes of publication authors have been assured that citations of their articles in Optics Express have been recorded in the standard citation database maintained and distributed by the Institute for Scientific Information (Science Citation Index).

For approximately 6 months now OSA has been able to guarantee authors publication of accepted, peer-reviewed manuscripts within 8 weeks of receipt and as usual provides free distribution around the world via the Internet. In return, authors pay a low publication fee of $300 for all standard articles. I invite you to join this new wave of scientific publishing. Manuscripts submitted this week will be on schedule for publication before the end of August. To obtain author information try the link:
