Special Issue in Remote Sensing on Archaeological Detection

 A Special Issue of the journal Remote Sensing, under the Guest Editorship of Ken Kvamme (University of Arkansas, USA), will be devoted entirely to archaeological prospecting and remote sensing, with a focus on archaeological detection. Remote Sensing is an open access journal free to readers on the internet with an Impact Factor of 3.180 and a 5-Year Impact Factor of 3.257 in 2014.
  Authors are urged to submit to this Special Issue. It will offer high exposure to a wide audience of the many results and techniques employed in contemporary archaeological work. Papers are requested from regions throughout the world that explore remote sensing techniques and technologies for locating archaeological sites and features, including ground-based or marine geophysics, aerial imaging through aircraft or drones, lidar, multispectral imaging from air or space, thermal infrared imaging, or air or space radar. Papers might also be of a methodological nature that examine the integration of multi-sensor data (from ground, air, or space), automatic archaeological feature detection, or even GIS-based or other computer models of archaeological location. Review articles covering one or more of these topics are also welcome. While a number of Special Issues in archaeological topics have appeared before in this journal, none have focused on archaeological detection as a problem and few have had a focus that includes ground-based methods, such as geophysics.
Authors are asked to pay a fee of 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs) per processed paper, but only if the article is accepted for publication in this journal after peer-review and possible revisions (see for further details). Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website, with a final submission date of 30 September, 2016. Complete details about the Special Issue can be found at: .
