Article Processing Charges

APC rate

The Journal of Remote Sensing is an Open Access journal supported by article processing charges (APCs). There are no submission charges.

From 2020 through mid 2023, all APCs will be covered by Aerospace Information Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Authors whose work is accepted for publication in the Journal of Remote Sensing before July 1, 2023 will therefore not be responsible for paying APCs.


Beginning July 1, 2023, the Science Partner Journals (SPJ) Program will offer full APC waivers to authors in the developing world (Hinari A & B countries). Additionally, full or partial waivers may be available to those experiencing financial hardships. Waivers may be requested at any point in the editorial workflow (pre-submission to acceptance) but are not granted until acceptance. Contact the Science Partner Journals (SPJ) Program business office to inquire about waivers.
