OSA Continuum is OSA's new, Gold Open-Access journal. This broad-scope, rapid-publication journal assesses submissions for accuracy, scientific rigor, and quality of presentation. In an effort to accelerate scientific discovery, the Journal encourages the submission of negative results and reproducibility studies, and provides a transparent peer review option for authors and reviewers.
