The Journal of Big Earth Data

The journal of Big Earth Data was launched in December 2017. This journal is an interdisciplinary, open access and peer-review academic journal. It is published by the International Society for Digital Earth jointly with the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Strategic Priority Research Program of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Taylor & Francis Group and the Science Press. The Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Huadong Guo is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. Aiming to provide an efficient and high-quality platform for promoting ‘big data’ sharing, processing and analyses, thereby revolutionizing the cognition of the Earth’s systems, the journal Big Earth Data was inaugurated. To showcase the benefits of data-driven research, submissions on the applications of ‘big Earth data’ in exploring the Earth’s history and its future evolution are highly encouraged. Big Earth Data supports an open data policy and serves as a direct link between the published manuscript and its relevant supporting data in the advancement of data sharing and reuse. The journal publishes research topics on ‘big data’ studies across the entire spectrum of Earth sciences, including but not limited to Earth Observation, Geography, Geology, Atmospheric Science, Marine Science, Geophysics, Geochemistry and so on. It accepts original research articles, review articles, data papers, technical notes and letters. Along with research papers and data papers describing data sets, the journal also publishes paper-related data sets deposited in the public repositories.

Big Earth Data is an Open Access electronic online journal. Papers published in the inauguration issue of Big Earth Data have been listed below for your refer:
