Academic journals represent a key resource for persons interested in applications of geospatial technologies to human rights. While many individual articles are referenced on the Papers and Documents portion of this site, a comprehensive list of relevant journals is also provided below.

Computers and Geosciences

Describes new computation methods for the geosciences using standard scientific article format; includes a range of methods such as those for geoscience information infrastructure, collection, representation, management, analysis, visualization, as well as for software development and scientific and social use of geoscience information. This also includes new educational methods as well as comparison of significant computational methods for the geosciences using well-defined benchmarks to reveal new understanding about the nature or use of the methods.

Health and Place

The journal is an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the study of all aspects of health and health care in which place or location matters. Recent years have seen closer links evolving between medical geography, medical sociology, health policy, public health and epidemiology. The journal reflects these convergences, which emphasise differences in health and health care between places, the experience of health and care in specific places, the development of health care for places, and the methodologies and theories underpinning the study of these issues.The journal brings together international contributors from geography, sociology, social policy and public health. It offers readers comparative (more)

International Journal of Geographic Information Science

The aim of this interdisciplinary and international journal is to provide a forum for the exchange of original ideas, techniques, approaches and experiences in the rapidly growing fields of geographical information science (GISc) and geocomputation. It is intended to interest those who design, implement and use systems for monitoring, modeling, planning and policy-making. Published research covers innovative applications of geographic information in natural resources, social systems and the built environment, and developments in computer science, cartography, surveying, geography and engineering in both developed and developing countries.

International Journal of Health Geographics

International Journal of Health Geographics is an Open Access, peer-reviewed, online journal fully dedicated to publishing quality manuscripts on all aspects of geospatial information systems and science applications in health and healthcare. International Journal of Health Geographics aims to cover a wide range of interdisciplinary geospatial topics in a health/healthcare context, from spatial data infrastructure and Web geospatial interoperability research, to research into real-time Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-enabled surveillance services, remote sensing applications, spatial epidemiology, spatio-temporal statistics, and even cyberspace mapping. The journal is thus of interest to audiences from many different fields.

International Journal of Remote Sensing

The International Journal of Remote Sensing is concerned with the science and technology of remote sensing and the applications of remotely sensed data in all major disciplines. Principal topics are: data collection, analysis, interpretation and display; surveying from space, air and water platforms; sensors; image processing; use of remotely sensed data; economic surveys and cost-benefit analyses. The journal contains primary papers on basic science, techniques and applications, and a section of Remote Sensing Letters containing material that merits fast publication. The journal incorporates Remote Sensing Reviews and we positively welcome the submission of review articles.

ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing

ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (P&RS) is the official journal of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS). The journal is to provide a channel of communication for scientists and professionals in all countries working in the many disciplines employing photogrammetry, remote sensing, spatial information systems, computer vision, and other related fields. The Journal is designed to serve as a source reference and archive of advancements in these disciplines.

Remote Sensing of the Environment

Remote Sensing of Environment serves the remote sensing community with the publication of results on theory, science, applications and technology of remote sensing of Earth resources and environment. Thoroughly interdisciplinary, this journal publishes on terrestrial, oceanic, and atmospheric sensing. The emphasis of the journal is on biophysical and quantitative approaches to remote sensing at local to global scales.

Transactions in GIS

Transactions in GIS is an international journal which provides a forum for high quality, original research articles, review articles, short notes and book reviews that focus on: practical and theoretical issues influencing the development of GIS; the collection, analysis, modelling, interpretation and display of spatial data within GIS; the connections between GIS and related technologies; new GIS applications which help to solve problems affecting the natural or built environments, or business.

URISA Journal

The URISA Journal is the flagship publication of the Urban and Regional Information Association and is published both in print and online. Members of URISA receive copies of the URISA Journal as a member benefit while libraries and other institutions may receive the Journal only by subscribing. Each issue of the Journal contains refereed articles and reports as well as book reviews, software reviews and current literature reviews. The URISA Journal is a must for any library, reference center, research facility, or for anyone who is interested in the latest advancements happening within the IT/GIS academic and professional communities.
