The Laser Institute of America has announced that beginning with the February 2007 issue, the Journal of Laser Applications (JLA) will post each accepted paper online as soon as it is copy edited, composed, and approved for publication. This process, known as e-First publishing, is designed to speed online publication of some papers by up to three months. e-First publication makes all display formats available immediately, including full-text HTML. Print publication will follow the completion of the online volume. JLA is hosted on Scitation, an online platform owned and operated by the American Institute of Physics.
