ASPRS implements electronic access to peer-reviewed articles

SHARE

ASPRS has implemented electronic access to peer-reviewed articles published in Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing (PE&RS), thereby complementing the existing online text for non-peer-reviewed articles. This action completes the goal of making the full text of each journal issue available online and provides timely information to address the needs of the academic community and the members located overseas who often experience delays in the delivery of their printed copy. Online access of PE&RS was one of the most requested benefits in the recently completed ASPRS Membership Survey.

In addition to the abstract text, which has been routinely available electronically for a number of years, ASPRS members may now access the full text of all peer-reviewed articles that appear in PE&RS as soon as the issue is printed and prior to the actual mailing. By logging in to the ASPRS web site with their membership ID and password, any ASPRS member in good standing may read and download up to three peer-reviewed articles in a single log in session. Full text for all peer-reviewed articles from January 2003 to date is currently available on the ASPRS website. It is expected that older seminal articles will also be posted in scanned form, with searchable abstracts, by later in 2006. Founded in 1934, ASPRS is an international professional organization of 6,000 geospatial data professionals.
