During the last decade, China has made rapid progress towards making more of its research publications publicly accessible. Recognizing the contribution of Open Access (OA) to the advancement of global knowledge production, the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) has been helping to develop government-funded models of OA publication and open research policies to make knowledge produced by public investment in China public to the maximum benefit of all.
Today, we are happy to announce that one of CAS’ flagship Open Access journals, Journal of Radars, is now indexed on ScienceOpen. We’re very excited by this new partnership, as it meets our commitment to bring together the latest results from different fields, and cultural and geographical regions.
Shouxin Jia, Managing Editor of Journal of Radars said:
ScienceOpen is a high-end academic exchange platform, promoting and leading the science and technology and our co-operation will bring better visibility to developments in the radar field.
The journal is jointly run by the Institute of Electronics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IECAS) and China Radar Industry Association (CRIA). Being a high-level academic exchange platform in China’s radar research, the journal covers the most important developments in radar technology in recent years and gives us a picture on the highly diverse modern uses of radars. These include:
- Synthetic aperture radar technology (SAR) and other imaging techniques
- Passive radar systems
- Laser radar (ladar) technology
- Advancements in signal and information processing such as conversion of analog radar signals to digital information or real-time information processing;
- Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) optimization
- The manifold applications of radar technology in aircraft detection, marine and ocean surveillance systems, meteorological monitoring or missile target locating systems.
