NRC Research Press adds a new title to collection of scientific and technical journals
Date:3/28/2013

This press release is available in French.

The Journal of Unmanned Vehicle Systems (JUVS) is a new quarterly, electronic-only publication that is now accepting papers; the inaugural issue is scheduled for release in the Fall of 2013. Developed in partnership with Unmanned Systems Canada (USC-STC) and with support from the Kenneth M Molson Foundation, JUVS is an exciting addition to the NRC Research Press journal roster.

This new title aims to provide an accessible, consolidated forum where an accumulation of peer-reviewed scientific knowledge on the design, development, testing, and applications of unmanned vehicle systems (UVS) in the air, on and under the water, and on land is published and disseminated. The journal is broadly themed into four main areas: civil, environmental, military, and engineering technology; contributions are invited from recognized researchers and practitioners in academia, government and industry from all over the world.

"Upon consultation with USC-STC, NRC Research Press agreed that there was a need for a scientific, peer-reviewed journal dedicated strictly to the rapidly expanding field of UVS (marine, terrestrial, and aerial) and aimed at communicating new information to this research community," said Bruce Dancik, Editor-in-Chief of the NRC Research Press journals. "NRC Research Press is keen to be a part of this exciting initiative and to be collaborating with the UVS research community."

"There is a great need for such a journal," explains Dr. David Bird, a professor of Wildlife Biology and Director of the Avian Science and Conservation Centre at McGill University and Founding Editor of this new publication. "The development and application of UVS is rapidly growing worldwide. While much of the media attention to date has focused on military applications, the civil and commercial sectors have grown stronger with each passing year in countries all over the world with no end in sight."

Dr. Bird has a passion for this field of study. For the last four decades his research has spanned all aspects of the biology of raptorial birds, but his main focus today is the application of unmanned vehicle systems to wildlife research and management. "David's enthusiasm for UVS and his prolific scholarly record make him an ideal Editor for this new and important scientific journal," said Dancik. "David is a welcome addition to the NRC Research Press family."

Since 1929, NRC Research Press journals have been delivering quality, peer-reviewed, international science to the world. Published by Canadian Science Publishing (CSP), an independent, not-for-profit organization, our journals are award-winning, high-impact scientific and technical publications that have an international readership in more than 175 countries. Continuing a long-standing mission to keep pace with the progress of scientific and industrial research throughout Canada, NRC Research Press is proud to bring this new journal to life in cooperation with Unmanned Systems Canada.

The inaugural 2013 volume of JUVS will be available free of charge. To enquire about subscriptions for 2014 or how to submit an article to the journal please visit the Journal of Unmanned Vehicle Systems online at http://www.nrcresearchpress.com/juvs.
