SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, signs the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA)

“SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, today announced that it has signed the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).

Developed during the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology in San Francisco, DORA commits to improve the ways in which the outputs of scholarly research are evaluated. Under the agreement, participating publishers agree to provide a range of article-level metrics to encourage assessment based on the scientific content of the article rather than the journal in which it was published; encourage responsible authorship practices; remove reuse limitations on reference lists; and reduce the constraints on the number of references in research articles. To date, more than 21,000 individuals and organizations in nearly 160 countries have signed DORA.

SPIE currently publishes the Proceedings of SPIE and 14 peer-reviewed journals through its SPIE Digital Library platform. The SPIE Digital Library, the world’s largest collection of optics and photonics applied research, comprises more than 560,000 publications covering topical areas ranging from biomedical optics and neuroscience to physics and astronomy-related technology….”
