Institutional Open Access Agreements

Optica Publishing Group has agreements with various institutions to cover open access Article Processing Charges (APCs) for their authors. Find out if your institution will cover your APC below.

In addition, authors from qualifying low- and middle-income countries may be eligible for a discount or waiver.

The corresponding author must have an accurate mailing address and/or eligible institution in our database for the system to apply any waiver. This is the person who submits the manuscript and will handle correspondence throughout the peer review and publication process. They will have the authority to act on behalf of all authors and the responsibility for keeping all co-authors informed as to the status of the submission, as well as being noted on the article as the primary contact for any inquiries after the paper is published. The corresponding author designation does not indicate the contribution made to the article. Contributor statements and contact information for other authors can be provided separately.
