Journal of Lightwave Technology

Since its inception in 1983, this semi-monthly journal, co-sponsored by seven IEEE technical societies and Optica Publishing Group, has published leading work in optical waveguide technologies and their applications, from integrated photonics to optical networks.

Many of the highest cited papers in these fields have been published in this journal. The Journal of Lightwave Technology strives for the fastest possible publication speed without sacrificing the high quality of its technical review process.

Our editorial board is comprised of leaders in their respective fields, who ensure that each paper gets detailed technical reviews by experts on the specific topic of each submitted paper.

We give authors the opportunity to perform two rounds of revisions in order to address reviewer concerns and polish papers to the highest technical standards.

The average response time of the journal (from submission to decision) is currently about 40 days, with an acceptance rate below 50%.
