ACM Transactions on Graphics
Is the foremost peer-reviewed journal in graphics field. In the colorful pages of TOG, leading researchers discuss breakthroughs in computer-aided design, synthetic image generation, rendering, solid modeling and other areas. "Research," the largest regular section, is necessary intellectual nourishment for anyone implementing graphics systems.
Advances in Engineering Software
The objective of this journal is to communicate recent and projected advances in computer-based engineering techniques. The fields covered include mechanical, aerospace, civil and environmental engineering, with an emphasis on research and development leading to practical problem-solving.
Annals of the Association of American Geographers
The Annals of the American Association of Geographers was first published in 1911. It is recognized as the Association's premier journal for major research articles for all fields of geography.
Computational Geometry -- Theory and Applications
Computational Geometry is a forum for research in theoretical and applied aspects of computational geometry. The journal publishes fundamental research in all areas of the subject, as well as disseminating information on the applications, techniques, and use of computational geometry
Computer Graphics Forum
Computer Graphics Forum is the leading journal for in-depth technical articles on computer graphics. The rapid publication of articles allows readers to keep up to date with new debates and topics of research. The journal features a lively mix of original research, computer graphics applications, conference reports, state-of-the-art surveys and workshops.
Computer-Aided Design (CAD)
Computer-Aided Design and Applications (CAD&A) is a world-leading journal in the field of CAD, publishing papers in both traditional areas as well as in new and emerging fields of the discipline, including theoretical papers but with special focus on the applied.
Computers & Geosciences
Computers & Geosciences publishes high impact, original research at the interface between Computer Sciences and Geosciences. Publications should apply modern computer science paradigms, whether computational or informatics-based, to address problems in the geosciences.
Computers & Graphics
Provides a medium to communicate information concerning interactive CG and CG applications. The journal focuses on interactive computer graphics, visualization and novel input modalities including virtual environments, and, within this scope, on graphical models, data structures, languages, picture manipulation algorithms and related software.
GIScience & Remote Sensing
GIScience & Remote Sensing publishes original, peer-reviewed articles associated with geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing of the environment (including digital image processing), geocomputation, spatial data mining, and geographic environmental modelling. Papers reflecting both basic and applied research are published.
The Photogrammetric Record
An international journal containing original, independently and rapidly refereed articles that reflect modern advancements in photogrammetry, 3D imaging, computer vision, and other related non-contact fields. All aspects of the measurement workflow are relevant, from sensor characterisation and modelling, data acquisition, processing algorithms and product generation, to novel applications. The journal provides a record of new research which will contribute both to the advancement of photogrammetric knowledge and to the application of techniques in novel ways. It also seeks to stimulate debate though correspondence, and carries reviews of recent literature from the wider geomatics discipline.
RefWorks -- an online research management, writing and collaboration tool -- is designed to help researchers easily gather, manage, store and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies."
