Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing

The Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing (CJRS)

The Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing is the official journal of the Canadian Remote Sensing Society, a publication of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) and published by Taylor and Francis. The CJRS provides a forum for the publication of scientific research and review articles. The Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing is converting to a full Open Access journal starting in January 2023 with Volume 49. Open Access (OA) means your paper is free to access online as soon as it is published, meaning anyone can read and cite your work.

The journal publishes topics including sensor and algorithm development, image processing techniques and advances focused on a wide range of remote sensing applications including:



Environmental Science

Forestry and Agriculture


Hydrology and Water Resources

Urban Surveys

Oceans and Ice

Articles can cover local to global scales and can be relevant to the Canadian or international community. The international editorial board provides expertise in a wide range of remote sensing theory and applications. Articles can be published in English or French. All papers are published with an abstract in both languages.

The Editor in Chief of the journal is Prof. Dr. Monique Bernier, Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS).
