BEIJING, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) — An institute under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has partnered with the renowned Science Magazine to launch an English-language journal offering research in the field of remote sensing, which will publish its first issue online in early 2021.

The Journal of Remote Sensing, in an open-access format, will publish the latest research results of global scientists and academic articles that solve major scientific puzzles in remote sensing, according to the joint sponsor Aerospace Information Research Institute of the CAS on Monday.

The editorial board is composed of 30 experts from countries including China, the United States, France, Canada, and Spain.
