Special Issues - Call for Content


New Approaches to Citizen Science

Advances in technology have revolutionised "citizen science", and far more people are involved in different ways than ever before. We invite high-quality contributions about citizen science to a special issue of Remote Sensing in Ecology and Conservation. The aim is to demonstrate the diversity of citizen science, in terms of approach and research themes, and the contributions of remote-sensing techniques. High-quality submissions for this special issue will be considered on a case-to-case basis for a full fee waiver, where authors are unable to pay the Article Processing Fees.

Submission deadline 15 July 2017

Monitoring the Marine Environment: Remote Sensing Approaches and Future Perspectives

Satellite remote sensing has proven to be an invaluable tool for monitoring the world oceans, and with the launches of new Earth observation satellites, wider applicability of the ocean remote sensing can be foreseen. This special issue invites contributions on recent and novel advances on remote sensing approaches to marine environment in its broadest sense. High-quality submissions for this special issue will be considered on a case-to-case basis for a full fee waiver, where authors are unable to pay the Article Processing Fees.

Closing date for submissions 30 August 2017

Patterns, Trends, and Ecological Applications of Phenology

Phenology has been for decades a focal point of monitoring ecosystem change under climate change, species invasion, and other environmental stresses. However, the potential of using phenology to track ecosystem status and function has been limited by a lack of knowledge about the ecological processes underlying observed phenological patterns, at scales ranging from species to ecosystems. In line with this research need, we invite high-quality contributions, which depict diverse patterns, trends, and ecological applications of phenology, to a special issue of Remote Sensing in Ecology and Conservation. High-quality submissions for this special issue will be considered on a case-to-case basis for a full fee waiver, where authors are unable to pay the Article Processing Fees.

Submission deadline: 31 October 2017
