Optics and Lasers in Engineering - ISSN 0143-8166
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 2.175 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.112 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 4.273 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Optics and Lasers in Engineering aims at providing an international forum for the interchange of information on the development of optical techniques and laser technology in engineering. Emphasis is placed on contributions targeted at the practical use of methods and devices, the development and enhancement of solutions and new theoretical concepts for experimental methods.

Optics and Lasers in Engineering reflects the main areas in which optical methods are being used and developed for an engineering environment. Manuscripts should offer clear evidence of novelty and significance. Papers focusing on parameter optimization or computational issues are not suitable. Similarly, papers focussed on an application rather than the optical method fall outside the journal's scope. The scope of the journal is defined to include the following:

Optical Metrology
Optical Methods for 3D visualization and virtual engineering
Optical Techniques for Microsystems
Imaging, Microscopy and Adaptive Optics
Computational Imaging
Laser methods in manufacturing
Integrated optical and photonic sensors
Optics and Photonics in Life Science
Hyperspectral and spectroscopic methods
Infrared and Terahertz techniques
