Journal of Perceptual ImagingTM

Peer-reviewed   •   Open Access   •   Multidisciplinary

IS&T's new journal sits at the intersection of perception and imaging. JPI focuses on the role of the human in imaging and visualization systems, in a wide range of application areas. The goal is to promote research that explores how principles of perception and cognition support and inspire new technologies, and how emerging technologies drive new questions for perceptual research. >>View Press Release

This Special Issue highlights contemporary research on multisensory and crossmodal interactions, and to advance our current understanding of scientific methods, findings, and theoretical ideas in these fields. We invite contributions of both empirical research studies and review articles that feature basic multisensory or crossmodal science, such as behavioral, brain imaging, and neuroplasticity investigations, as well as multisensory research that is inspired by or advances technological innovation in areas such as optical and MRI imaging, multimedia, and virtual and augmented reality.


The Journal of Perceptual Imaging has a broad scope, welcoming research from a wide range of disciplines, technologies, and application areas. Experimental, theoretical, and survey papers are welcome. Topics include:

Perception and Cognition for Imaging and Visualization

  • Vision, audition, touch, and multisensory interactions
  • Color perception
  • Texture, lighting, and material appearance
  • Visual attention and saliency
  • Human decision making and problem solving
  • Memory, perceptual organization, and semantics
  • Depth, stereo, and movement
  • Psychophysical and experimental methods
  • Art, aesthetics, and emotion
  • Brain plasticity and crossmodal interactions

Perceptually inspired Algorithms and Approaches for:

  • Image quality and quality of experience
  • Image and video search, analysis, coding, synthesis, and understanding
  • Visualization, computer graphics, and visual analytics
  • Stereoscopic and immersive environments
  • Machine learning, AI, and computer vision
  • Computational aesthetics
  • Design and evaluation

Application Areas

The world of imaging is expanding. The Journal of Perceptual Imaging welcomes papers in new and emerging applications and technologies, including:

  • Novel user interface
  • Virtual and augmented reality
  • Surveillance, autonomous vehicles, and other sensor-based technologies
  • Medical imaging and bioinformatics
  • Digital humanities
  • Computational photography and light-wave cameras
  • Mobile and high dynamic range systems
  • Gaming and robotics

Why Publish in JPI?

  • You are inspired by technology innovation and also by a deep understanding of fundamental principles of human perception, cognition, and expression.
  • Your research is multidisciplinary and does not fit neatly into other journals’ scope.
  • There is a significant computational, psychological, neurophysiological, and/or artistic component to your imaging research.
  • There are important practical implications of your perceptual and cognitive research for imaging technologies and/or applications.
  • You want your research to be seen as soon as you approve the proofs for publication. JPI papers are posted online as soon as final approval is given by the author(s) and editors.
  • JPI is indexed by Ebsco, Portico, Crossref, CNPIEC, OCLC, and others. Published articles appear in GoogleScholar and secured in perpetuity by Portico.


The world of imaging is exploding, from its earliest roots in image processing, printing, and display technology to its vibrant branches in visualization, image search, internet applications, and art. Some of the biggest advances in this field have been driven by insights and advances in psychology and vision science, including JPEG and MPEG coding, image quality metrics, high dynamic range imaging, and color guidance for visual analytics. Recent advances in computational capability and sophistication have opened the door to new approaches and application areas that will enable and require deeper understanding of the “human in the loop.”

The Journal of Perceptual Imaging springs from the IS&T Conference on Human Vision and Electronic Imaging (HVEI)—a conference within the Electronic Imaging Sympsosium—which has been driving the research agenda in this multidisciplinary field for 30 years. JPI builds on this foundation to provide an open-source, peer-reviewed academic journal to serve perceptual, imaging, and visualization scientists in the greater intellectual community.
