Remote Sensing in Ecology and Conservation provides a forum for rapid, peer-reviewed publication of novel, multidisciplinary research at the interface between remote sensing science and ecology and conservation. The journal prioritizes findings that advance the scientific basis of ecology and conservation, promoting the development of remote-sensing based methods relevant to the management of land use and biological systems at all levels, from populations and species to ecosystems and biomes. The journal defines remote sensing in its broadest sense, including data acquisition by hand-held and fixed ground-based sensors, such as camera traps and acoustic recorders, and sensors on airplanes and satellites. The intended journal’s audience includes ecologists, conservation scientists, policy makers, managers of terrestrial and aquatic systems, remote sensing scientists, and students.

Steps to Publication

  1. Submit or confirm your submission at At this stage, confirmation of the willingness to pay publication fees will be required.
  2. We will send you an email confirmation of your submission details.
  3. After review and if your paper is accepted, you will be prompted to sign the Open Access Agreement form at Wiley Author Services. Payment of the article publication charge will be required. You can then track the progress of your article through Wiley Author Services.
  4. You will receive notification that your proof is ready for review, and be able to make corrections to your article using e-annotation tools for electronic proof correction.
  5. Your article will be published on Wiley Online Library. If you have previously signed up for alerts through Wiley’s Author Services, you will be sent an email when your article is published online.


Original research articles – maximum of 5000 words, excluding acknowledgements, references and figure and table legends.

Reviews – maximum of 4000 words, excluding acknowledgements, references and figure table legends. Reviews are expected to be topical, succinct contributions that identify current gaps in knowledge; provide novel insights into future interdisciplinary challenges and ultimately guide new research. Reviews may include quantitative meta-analyses, syntheses, as well as modelling approaches.

Policy forum – maximum of 4000 words, excluding acknowledgements, references and figure and table legends. Policy forums should support transfer of information between the research and policy spheres. They should be set within a broad policy context and relevant to constrained decision making; opinions should be identified clearly as such and be grounded in evidence.

Interdisciplinary perspectives – maximum of 4000 words, excluding acknowledgements, references and figure and table legends. Interdisciplinary perspectives provide a platform for scientists and practitioners to present personal and well-argued views on current and future priorities for strong, dynamic interactions among the ecological and remote sensing communities. Perspectives also provide opportunities for authors to raise thought-provoking interdisciplinary issues that advance collective thinking.
