Journaux publications travaux astro:photographie/photometrie/spectro/...

Recommended Posts

Bonjour a tous,

J'aurais aime savoir s'il existait un ou des journaux de references / ou meme des conferences permettant de publier des travaux scientifiques relatifs a l'astrophotographie realisee en amateur.

La cible que j'ai en tete concerne principalement les techniques de traitement ou analyse d'images astronomiques, mais aussi pourquoi pas des techniques de prises de vue/spectroscopies, etc..

J'ai en tete:



Nom: The Astronomical Journal


Description:" The Astronomical Journal
Founded in 1849 by Benjamin A. Gould, the AJ publishes original astronomical research, with an emphasis on significant scientific results derived from observations, including descriptions of data capture, surveys, analysis techniques, and astrophysical interpretation. It takes a broad view of astronomy, extending from the solar system to observational cosmology with a tradition of papers discussing dynamical processes. The AJ serves an international community that includes authors, scientists and students through efficient and accessible communication of the science and associated techniques.
Topical Papers and Special Issues
The Astronomical Journal supports the complete presentation of astronomical observations, analysis techniques, and modeling efforts in the refereed literature. To this end, we are pleased to consider papers that describe instruments, techniques, or software that has been or can reasonably be expected to be associated with scientific research published in the AJ. Examining AJ papers from the past few years can serve as a useful guide. Because the AJ is not currently equipped to review treatments of instrumentation or techniques as research topics in their own right, we ask authors of technical papers to explain the connection to the science and discuss their plans informally with the Editors in advance of submission.
In addition, the AJ is pleased to consider special sets of papers such as those derived from a single program or large survey. A larger number of papers can be published as a separate issue or for fewer (e.g., 4�8) papers as a subsection of a regular issue. Please contact the Editors if you are interested in exploring this option.

Nom: Journal of Real-Time Image Processing

Description: "Although there are many journals addressing the subject of image processing, the Journal of Real-Time Image Processing (JRTIP) is the only one that is solely dedicated to the real-time aspect of image and video processing.
It is often the case that an image processing algorithm is developed and proven theoretically sound, presumably with a specific application in mind, but its practical applications and the detailed steps, methodology, and trade-off analysis required to achieve its real-time performance are never fully explored. JRTIP is thus intended to bridge the gap between the theory and practice of image and video processing, serving the greater community of researchers, practicing engineers, and industrial professionals who deal with designing, implementing or utilizing real-time image and video processing systems.
The real-time aspect is critical in many real-world devices or products such as mobile phones, digital still/video/cell-phone cameras, portable media players, personal digital assistants, high-definition television, video surveillance systems, industrial visual inspection systems, medical imaging devices, vision-assisted intelligent robots, spectral imaging systems, and many other embedded image or video processing systems.
Topics covered in the journal include:
Real-time image and video processing algorithms
Real-time embedded image/video processing systems
Real-time image and video processing hardware and architecture including FPGA, DSP, GPU, GPP, ASIC, System-on-Chip (SoC), and System-in-a-Package (SiP) implementations
Real-time software optimizations and related design paradigms for image/video processing
Real-time hardware/software co-design for image and video processing
Real-time image and video processing applications including digital, cell-phone, and smart cameras, machine vision, industrial inspection, surveillance and security, image and video compression for transmission and for database storage and retrieval, biomedical imaging, spectral imaging, etc.
The editorial board consist of a dedicated team of experts from academia and industry who have played a major role in promoting the area of real-time image and video processing. The Editors-in-Chief and more than half of the board members have an established track record in this area. They bring several years of experience from their previous involvement with the journal Real-Time Imaging (RTI), which preceded JRTIP publishing real-time image and video processing papers"

Nom: Astronomy and astrophysics

Description: " The current A&A sections are as follows.
Astrophysical processes
Cosmology (including clusters of galaxies)
Extragalactic astronomy
Galactic structure, stellar clusters and populations
Interstellar and circumstellar matter
Stellar structure and evolution
Stellar atmospheres
The Sun
Planets and planetary systems
Celestial mechanics and astrometry
Atomic, molecular, and nuclear data*
Astronomical instrumentation*
Catalogs and data*
Numerical methods and codes*
* Free access at no cost
Sections 12-15 of A&A have topics of potential use by a wide range of astronomers. Thanks to the generosity of our publisher, who provides free access to these sections and to A&A Letters, these important parts of our Journal are freely available to the worldwide community of astronomers.
Note concerning papers submitted for Section 13
Recognizing the importance of state-of-the-art instrumentation, the A&A Board of Directors has decided to develop the corresponding journal section, thus aiming at making A&A a reference journal also for astronomers whose main interest is instrumentation. We therefore introduce hereby the new editorial policy concerning these papers. In Section 13, we will now publish papers that describe:
new concepts and ideas that might lead to actual future instruments,
crucial instrumental developments in ongoing ground-based or space projects,
studies that are essential to the preparation of large instrumental projects,
ground-breaking data processing and mining methods,
provided these works report a significant advance on current capabilities and are of interest to a sizable fraction of the community.
Compared to our previous editorial policy for Sect. 13, the main change is that we no longer request that papers describing instruments and related studies also present astronomical results. Details on this new policy can be found in the editorial published in A&A 459, E3 (2006). "

Nom:EPJ Data Science

Description: "The 21st century is currently witnessing the establishment of data-driven science as a complementary approach to the traditional hypothesis-driven method. This (r)evolution accompanying the paradigm shift from reductionism to complex systems sciences has already largely transformed the natural sciences and is about to bring the same changes to the techno-socio-economic sciences, viewed broadly.
EPJ Data Science offers a publication platform to address this evolution by bringing together all academic disciplines concerned with the same challenges:
how to extract meaningful data from systems with ever increasing complexity
how to analyse them in a way that allows new insights
how to generate data that is needed but not yet available
how to find new empirical laws, or more fundamental theories, concerning how any natural or artificial (complex) systems work
This is accomplished through experiments and simulations, by data mining or by enriching data in a novel way. The focus of this journal is on conceptually new scientific methods for analyzing and synthesizing massive data sets, and on fresh ideas to link these insights to theory building and corresponding computer simulations. As such, articles mainly applying classical statistics tools to data sets or with a focus on programming and related software issues are outside the scope of this journal.
EPJ Data Science covers a broad range of research areas and applications and particularly encourages contributions from techno-socio-economic systems, where it comprises those research lines that now regard the digital "tracks" of human beings as first-order objects for scientific investigation. Topics include, but are not limited to, human behavior, social interaction (including animal societies), economic and financial systems, management and business networks, socio-technical infrastructure, health and environmental systems, the science of science, as well as general risk and crisis scenario forecasting up to and including policy advice."


2016 Impact factor 2.787




Nom: EPJ TI - Techniques and Instrumentation

Description: "EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation focuses on the design, implementation, and application of new techniques in all areas of the physical and applied sciences. Of particular interest to the journal are advances produced by:

Laboratory-specific custom instrumentation and diagnostics
Innovative and clever experimental techniques
Subtle refinements to established experimental setups
Novel analytical methods

Papers in the journal should summarize a novel, significant result, and provide a detailed description of the equipment, methods, or techniques used to produce the result. They may also include discussions of underlying theory, and/or potential cross-disciplinary applications.

EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation publishes regular articles, as well as short commentary articles intended to promote discussion and debate. Reviews of known techniques, or of open questions in emerging fields, are also strongly encouraged. This fully Open Access journal is devoted to the broad, timely, and public dissemination of information."
