Aims and Scope

 

       

 International Journal of Image and Data Fusion provides a single source of information for all aspects of image and data fusion methodologies, developments, techniques and applications. Image and data fusion techniques are important for combining the many sources of satellite, airborne and ground based imaging systems, and integrating these with other related data sets for enhanced information extraction and decision making.

Image and data fusion aims at the integration of multi-sensor, multi-temporal, multi-resolution and multi-platform image data, together with geospatial data, GIS, in-situ, and other statistical data sets for improved information extraction, as well as to increase the reliability of the information. This leads to more accurate information that provides for robust operational performance, i.e., increased confidence, reduced ambiguity and improved classification enabling evidence based management.

This journal focuses on the theory, methodology and applications of image and data fusion, and encourages submission on a broad range of topics such as concept studies, new fusion techniques at different processing level, image and data fusion architectures, algorithms, and novel applications. Papers addressing fusion needs for data from new or planned platforms and sensors are specifically invited.

The journal publishes original research papers, occasional review papers and shorter Letters technical articles in all areas of image and data fusion including, but not limited to the following aspects and topics:

§        Automatic registration/geometric aspects of  fusing images with different spatial, spectral, temporal resolutions; phase information; or acquired in different modes;

§        Pixel, feature and decision level fusion algorithms and methodologies

§        Data Assimilation: Fusing data with models

§        Multi-source classification and information extraction

§        Integration of satellite, airborne and terrestrial sensor systems

§        Fusing temporal data sets for change detection studies (e.g. for Global Change studies)

§        Data fusion applications in fields such as mapping, natural hazard monitoring, environmental security, etc. 

§        Image and data mining from multi-platform, multi-source, multi-scale, multi-temporal data sets. (e.g., geometric information, topological information, statistical information, etc.)

Instructions For Authors

 

 Manuscript preparation

1. General guidelines

  • Papers are accepted in English.  Either British or American English spelling and punctuation may be used.
  • A typical Research Paper will typically be between 5,000-8,000 words. Papers that greatly exceed this will be critically reviewed with respect to length. Image and Data Fusion Letters offers authors a route for rapid communication of advance results of research and application, and may later become the subject of a full paper. Authors submitting Letters for consideration should treat requests for revision as a matter of priority: in turn, both the Letters Editor and the Publishers will fast-track the handling of Letters. Letters must not exceed 8 printed pages of the Journal (the equivalent of 2,000 words including tables, figures and references) and will normally be published within four months of acceptance.
  • Authors should include a word count with their manuscript.
  • Manuscripts should be compiled in the following order: title page; abstract; keywords; main text; acknowledgments; appendixes (as appropriate); references; table(s) with caption(s) (on individual pages); figure caption(s) (as a list). 
  • Abstracts of up to 200 words are required for all papers submitted.
  • Each paper should have three to six keywords
  • Section headings should be concise and numbered sequentially, using a decimal system for subsections.
  • All the authors of a paper should include their full names, affiliations, postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and email addresses on the cover page of the manuscript. One author should be identified as the Corresponding Author.
  • For all manuscripts non-discriminatory language is mandatory. Sexist or racist terms should not be used.
  • Authors must adhere to SI units . Units are not italicised.
  • When using a word which is or is asserted to be a proprietary term or trade mark, authors must use the symbol ® or TM. 

2. Style guidelines 

3. Figures

  • It is in the author's interest to provide the highest quality figure format possible. Please be sure that all imported scanned material is scanned at the appropriate resolution: 1200 dpi for line art, 600 dpi for greyscale and 300 dpi for colour.
  • Figures must be saved separate to text. Please do not embed figures in the paper file. 
  • Files should be saved as one of the following formats: TIFF (tagged image file format), PostScript or EPS (encapsulated PostScript), and should contain all the necessary font information and the source file of the application (e.g. CorelDraw/Mac, CorelDraw/PC). 
  • All figures must be numbered in the order in which they appear in the paper (e.g. figure 1, figure 2). In multi-part figures, each part should be labelled (e.g. figure 1(a), figure 1(b)). 
  • Figure captions must be saved separately, as part of the file containing the complete text of the paper, and numbered correspondingly. 
  • The filename for a graphic should be descriptive of the graphic, e.g. Figure1, Figure2a. 

4. Colour
There are a limited number of colour pages within the annual page allowance. Authors should restrict their use of colour to situations where it is necessary on scientific, and not merely cosmetic, grounds. Authors of accepted

papers who propose publishing figures in colour in the print version should consult Taylor & Francis at proof stage to agree on an appropriate number of colour pages. If the colour page budget is exceeded, authors will be given the option to provide a financial contribution to additional colour reproduction costs. Figures that appear in black-and-white in the print edition of the Journal will appear in colour in the online edition, assuming colour originals are supplied.
5. Reproduction of copyright material
Contributors are required to secure permission for the reproduction of any figure, table or extensive extract (more than fifty words) from the text of a source that is copyrighted or owned  by a party other than Taylor & Francis or the contributor. This applies to direct reproduction as well as ‘derivative reproduction’, where the contributor has created a new figure or table that derives substantially from a copyrighted source. Authors are themselves responsible for the payment of any permission fees required by the copyright owner. Copies of permission letters should be sent with the manuscript upon submission to the Editor(s).

 

6. Supplementary online material
Authors are welcome to submit animations, movie files, sound files or any additional information for online publication.

 

Manuscript submission
Papers for consideration should be sent to the Editorial Office, at IJIDF@casm.ac.cn
Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts electronically. Electronic submissions should be sent as email attachments using a standard word processing program. If email submission is not possible, please send an electronic version on disk.
This journal does not accept Microsoft Word 2007 documents. Please use Word's "Save As" option to save your document as an older (.doc) file type.

 

Copyright and authors’ rights

It is a condition of publication that authors vest or license copyright in their articles, including abstracts, in Taylor & Francis Ltd. This enables us to ensure full copyright protection and to disseminate the article, and the Journal, to the widest possible readership in print and electronic formats as appropriate. Authors may, of course, use the material elsewhere after publication providing that prior permission is obtained from Taylor & Francis Ltd. 

Exceptions are made for authors of Crown or US Government employees whose policies require that copyright cannot be transferred to other parties.  We ask that a signed statement to this effect is submitted when returning proofs for accepted papers.

 

Reprints

Corresponding authors will receive free online access to their article through our website (www.informaworld.com). Reprints of articles published in the Journalcan be purchased through Rightslink® when proofs are received. If you have any queries, please contact our reprints department at reprints@tandf.co.uk .

 

Page charges

There are no page charges to individuals or institutions.
