SPIE's Journal of Applied Remote Sensing now included in Science Citation, Current Content indexes

13 February 2009

BELLINGHAM, Wash., USA -- SPIE's Journal of Applied Remote Sensing (JARS) is now included in Thomson Reuters databases including the Science Citation Index Expanded, SPIE has announced.

JARS papers are included beginning with Volume 1 (2007) in Science Citation Index Expanded, including the Web of Science; Current Contents/Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences; and Current Contents/Agriculture, Biology & Environmental Sciences.

JARS is an online-only journal that covers the concepts, information, and progress of the remote-sensing community.

"The Journal of Applied Remote Sensing strives to become a leading international journal in the rapidly advancing field of remote sensing," said Wei Gao, Editor-in-Chief. "JARS is an e-journal, and features rapid publication of peer-reviewed remote sensing research and multimedia presentations. JARS has been recognized as representing high-quality, innovative, and progressive research, and extends an invitation to discerning researchers for participation. JARS is honored to be included in the Science Citation Index and looks forward to continuing to serve the remote sensing community."

Dr. Gao is the Director and Senior Research Scientist for the USDA UV-B Monitoring and Research Program and Center of Remote Sensing and Modeling for Agricultural Sustainability, Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory, at Colorado State University.

JARS features multimedia (video and audio) content, rapid article-at-a-time publication, and reference linking via CrossRef, and is published in the SPIE Digital Library.
