The International Journal of Remote Sensing ( IJRS) is concerned with the theory, science and technology of remote sensing and novel applications of remotely sensed data. The journal’s focus includes remote sensing of the atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere and the terrestrial earth, as well as human modifications to the earth system. Principal topics include:
• Remotely sensed data collection, analysis, interpretation and display.
• Surveying from space, air, water and ground platforms.
• Imaging and related sensors.
• Image processing.
• Use of remotely sensed data.
• Economic surveys and cost-benefit analyses.
• Drones Section: Remote sensing with unmanned aerial systems (UASs, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones).

Peer Review Statement
On submission, manuscripts are reviewed by specialist language experts. We are not looking for perfect English, but the content does have to be understandable in order for peer review to be effective. If we do not think your paper could be understood by a reviewer, then you will receive your paper back, usually within one week of submission, with a report that provides advice on how the English can be improved. This assessment is enormously valuable, because it avoids unnecessary delays in the peer-review process and and also avoids your submission being rejected purely on the basis of poor English. We want your work to be reviewed for its scientific content alone.
Thereafter, all submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees.
All peer review is single blind and submission is online via ScholarOne
. All accepted papers benefit from a review by a Technical Editor prior to publication
to ensure conformity with the journal's style and provide general scientific clarity.
