ISPRS Announcements

Collaboration between the ISPRS Journal and the ISPRS Open Journal

Dear ISPRS Readers, Authors, and Members,

We would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the close collaboration between the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (hybrid journal) and the ISPRS Open Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (gold Open Access journal).

Over the past years, our hybrid journal has experienced continuous success, as evidenced by the increasing number of submissions and its Impact Factor of 11.774. Given its undisputed prestige and power, this journal is proud to support its younger counterpart. The close collaboration of the two editorial teams is key to further success of the two journals.

Furthermore, we are delighted to announce that ISPRS, Elsevier, and Trimble have agreed to introduce the Ackermann award, named after Prof. Friedrich Ackermann (1929-2021). This award will be given to exceptional researchers who have published their work in the gold Open Access journal, similar to the U.V. Helava award that is given for the hybrid one. This new award will help to further promote and recognize the exceptional research that is being published in the gold Open Access journal and will also serve as testament to its growing success and influence in the field of photogrammetry and remote sensing.

We would like to emphasize the importance of submitting your high-quality research to both journals, contributing to the advancement of the field of photogrammetry and remote sensing and helping to maintain a strong community of ISPRS researchers. A limited number of waivers for APC charges are available for submissions to the Open Journal. Authors requiring support are encouraged to contact the Editor-in-Chief for details.

We look forward to seeing the outstanding research that will be published and the future recipients of the Ackermann and the U.V. Helava awards.

Thank you for your continued support and collaboration.
