Journal of Imaging Science & Technology
In 1990, IS&T merged the Journal of Imaging Science (1985-1989) with the Journal of Imaging Technology (1984-1989) to form the JIST. Articles from JIST since 1997 are available online through the absract search database. Prior to that, IS&T also published the Photographic Science and Engineering (1957-1984) and the Journal of Applied Photographic Engineering (1975-1983). While copies of articles from these older journals are not available online from, they may be accessed by contacting IS&T directly. All JIST articles published since January 1996 (Volume 40, No.1) are available from our digital library.
To provide the imaging community documentation on a broad range of imaging research, development, and applications as a way to promote communication and understanding across the boundaries of the many disciplines involved in modern imaging.
Typical issues include research papers and/or comprehensive reviews from a variety of topical areas. In the spirit of fostering constructive scientific dialog, the Journal accepts Letters to the Editor commenting on previously published articles. Periodically the Journal features a Special Section containing a group of related— usually invited—papers introduced by a Guest Editor. Imaging research topics that have coverage in JIST include:
- Digital printing technologies, including ink jet and thermal printing
- Digital fabrication
- Materials and processes of electrophotography
- Prepress and printing technologies
- Image capture media and technologies including digital cameras
- Image analysis, interpretation, and quality
- Color image science
- Hard and soft displays
- Image archiving and image permanence
- Chemistry of photosensitive materials including silver halides
JIST is indexed by SCI, EI, and other agencies.
Original manuscripts not previously published and not currently submitted for publication elsewhere may be submitted for peer-review. Prior publication does not refer to conference abstracts, paper summaries, or non-reviewed proceedings.
