Japanese Universities Offered Access to SPIE Digital Library in Collaboration with JUSTICE
Date:1/3/2013

BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA, and TOKYO, Japan (PRWEB) January 02, 2013

Japanese researchers in optics and photonics now have a new option for access to the world’s largest collection of literature in the field. SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and the Japanese Alliance of University Library Consortia for E-Resources (JUSTICE) recently signed an agreement allowing access by opting-in consortia members to publications in the SPIE Digital Library.

The agreement provides for reduced rates for annual subscriptions, and represents a collaborative effort on the parts of SPIE and JUSTICE to increase readily available resources on light-based technologies for university students and researchers.

Researchers whose JUSTICE-affiliated libraries choose to participate in the license will be able to view or download any of the 370,000 journal articles and conference proceedings in the SPIE Digital Library.

“This is a very significant agreement for researchers in all areas of photonics as well as related disciplines,” said Toyohiko Yatagai, a professor at the Center for Optical Research and Education at Utsunomiya University and the recently elected 2013 SPIE Vice President. “The SPIE Digital Library is a continually updated collection of the latest research reports across all areas of optics and photonics, such as lasers, astronomy, biomedical optics, imaging, illumination and displays, and sensors. These technologies have applications in medicine, food safety, sustainable energy, manufacturing, community security, transportation, and many other vital areas of life. ”

“SPIE is very pleased to be able to work with JUSTICE and thereby support the Society’s mission to disseminate optics and photonics information as widely as possible,” said SPIE CEO Eugene Arthurs. “Japanese researchers have provided strong contributions to our library since the first SPIE publications. We urge those at participating universities to encourage their librarians to connect with this new opportunity, to enable easy access to this comprehensive collection.”

About JUSTICE

JUSTICE, established in 2011, is a new consortium resulting from the alliance between the Japan Association of National University Libraries Consortium (JANUL) and the Private and Public University Libraries Consortium (PULC). Their aim is to enhance coordination among the Japanese university library community by cooperating with publishers and vendors of e-resources.

About SPIE

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. The Society serves nearly 225,000 constituents from approximately 150 countries, offering conferences, continuing education, books, journals, and a digital library in support of interdisciplinary information exchange, professional growth, and patent precedent. SPIE provided over $2.7 million in support of education and outreach programs in 2011.
