Geocarto International

An Open Access Journal

Submit your research

Geocarto International is converting to Open Access from its 2023 volume.

Geocarto International is converting to an Open Access (OA) journal from its 2023 volume. The journal has seen an incredible growth in content over the past few years and this move to Open Access will ensure that going forward its content will be freely available to all. 

Geocarto International is well known in the areas of remote sensing, GIS, geoscience and environmental sciences and the move to a fully OA title will allow it to continue to publish the latest multidisciplinary research in these areas. We also believe Open Access will expand our readership and submissions from a broader range of our global scientific community as we continue to expand the array of geospatial technologies applied to understand our rapidly changing Earth.

The journal has been led by Editors Kamlesh Lulla, Bradley Rundquist, and Duane Nellis for a number of years and has recently been strengthened by the appointment of two regional editors, Prashant Srivastava (Asia) and Szilard Szabo (Europe). In keeping with the international reach of the journal, we have also recently appointed a new Editorial Board to help guide it as it converts to open access.

As part of this transition, all manuscripts received after 19 May 2022 will proceed through Geocarto International’s Open Access submission portal. Authors who submit after this date will, if their article is accepted, be required to pay an article publishing charge (APC) which can be covered by an author’s funder or institution.

Contribute to Geocarto International

Geocarto International is particularly interested in receiving contributions on the following:

  • Precise, illustrated papers on new developments, technologies and applications of remote sensing

  • Research results in remote sensing, GISciences and related disciplines

  • Reports on new and innovative applications and projects in these areas

  • Assessment and evaluation of new remote sensing and GIS equipment, software and hardware

There is a comprehensive description of the journal scope as well as a clear set of instructions for authors in the  journal website.  

Interested authors should visit the Taylor & Francis Open Access Members and Open Access Agreements pages to find out if they are based at an institution that may have funds available to authors wishing to publish in Geocarto International. Interested readers can sign up to receive  latest article alerts to keep up-to-date with the latest research published in the journal. 

We look forward to receiving your submissions and hope you join us to embrace  Geocarto International’s Open Access future.
