Demystifying the Publishing Process
Join OSA editors-in-chief, Miguel Alonso (Optics Letters) and Kurt Busch (Journal of the Optical Society of America B), for a comprehensive overview of the OSA publication process. Learn how to prepare your manuscript for submission and how to navigate the peer review process, as well as tips for responding to reviewers and guidelines for ethical authorship. While this session will focus on OSA journals and may be particularly relevant for new authors, the skills and information are widely applicable and will be of interest to researchers at all stages of their careers.

Miguel Alonso
Editor-in-chief, Optics Letters @OSA
Miguel A. Alonso received an Engineer in Physics degree from the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana in Mexico City and his PhD in Optics from The Institute of Optics, University of Rochester. He joined the faculty of The Institute of Optics in 2003, and since 2018 he has been based at the Institut Fresnel and the Ecole Centrale in Marseille, France, as an A*MIDEX Chair of Excellence. He was Associate Editor and then Deputy Editor for Optics Express, Chair of OSA’s Spotlight on Optics, Associate Editor for Optica, and since January he serves as the Editor in Chief for Optics Letters. Alonso is a Fellow of The Optical Society. His research focuses on mathematical aspects of wave propagation, in particular on the description and applications of beams with structured intensity and polarization distributions, optical coherence, and the connection between the ray and wave models of light.
Kurt Busch
Editor-in-chief, Journal of the Optical Society of America B @OSA
Kurt Busch is Professor of Theoretical Optics & Photonics at the Humboldt University of Berlin and Group Leader at the Max-Born-Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy. After PhD work at Universität Karlsruhe and Iowa State University, he has held positions at the University of Toronto, in the Emmy-Noether program of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft at Universität Karlsruhe, at the University of Central Florida (CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics and Department of Physics), and at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. He was Associate Editor and then Deputy Editor of JOSA B, and has served as the Journal’s Editor-in-Chief since 2019. He is a Fellow of The Optical Society. His main research interests include quantum photonics and nano-photonics, computational optics & photonics, photonic crystals, plasmonics, and random media, fluctuation-induced phenomena, and group-IV photonics.
