Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue attempts to capture, consolidate, and promote some of the very latest creative thinking around satellite data product development, algorithm design, big data image processing and applications that is being undertaken within Europe and in European Institutions. With the successful launch of many of the Sentinel missions by the European Space Agency, alongside services and consistent product development being undertaken through the Copernicus Programme, this Special Issue is incredibly timely to make sense of some of the best Earth Observation and remote sensing research. The Editors welcome papers from a wide variety of topics. To not restrict high quality papers from teams working internationally, we ask that one of the paper authors be working at a European Institute at the time of submission.

Full papers, reviews and short communications of studies making use of remote sensing data from any source (satellite, airborne, drones, field spectroscopy) are encouraged.  Papers from providers of European satellite data and products (ESA, Copernicus, EUMETSAT) are also encouraged. If you have any questions about the scope of a proposed paper or whether it would be eligible to be considered for this Special Issue, please get in touch.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
