In the article of the Editor in Chief of the Ukrainian Journal of Remote Sensing (UJRS), a corresponding member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Mykhailo POPOV, analytical data on the results of publishing activities for ten years (from March 2014 to March 2024) are demonstrated. It is emphasized that UJRS is currently the only specialized scientific journal in Ukraine fully devoted to covering new science and practice in remote sensing of the Earth.

UJRS is included in several aggregators of academic texts and indexing by Index Copernicus International and Google Scholar. The editorial board consists of scientists of the highest qualifications who are recognized experts in their research field. More than a third of the editorial board are scientists from foreign scientific institutions and universities. Every year, 25-30 doctors and candidates of sciences take an active part in reviewing articles.

The editor board's monitoring shows that during the journal's ten years of existence, three authors obtained the degree of Doctor of Sciences, 20 authors defended their candidate theses, six authors received the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, and nine were awarded scientific titles. These data confirm that UJRS is a reliable platform for disseminating research results. This number, the fortieth, is an anniversary edition. We invite specialists in remote sensing and data processing to cooperate.
