Change in OSA Backfile Policy Effective 1 January 2017

Under a new policy, institutions subscribing to any of OSA’s package products in 2017, including any Print plus Online Combo package, E-combination package, Optics InfoBase or Optics InfoBase Premium package, will continue to receive complimentary access to the full backfile for those journal titles included in the package subscribed to. For those institutions who subscribe to an individual title or titles, OSA will provide complimentary access to the last 10 years of content as part of that year’s subscription. In addition, we will provide several options for individual title subscribers to continue to offer their patrons with complete access to the backfile for that title. (25/9/15)
