Publishing in journals is crucial for the advancement of science. Scientists publish frequently to make other people in the field aware of the research they have conducted. Other people may read and benefit from their work.
Recently, predatory publishers are growing in numbers. We regularly read stories and warning posts about the proliferation of predatory journals among scientific communities. Predatory journals are the ones who imitate to be a legitimate, high valued journal; but they do not adhere to strict rules of peer-review and quality control standards.
Publishing in such fake journals could be devastating for the career of a scientist. Therefore, it is important to be aware of fake/predatory publishers and their journals lists.
JUST SPATIAL mainly promote GIS and Remote Sensing related knowledge. So confining to the scope of Remote Sensing, we are posting the top 10 journals of Remote Sensing below. Hope the research students and teachers will find it useful.
