Therefore, we searched the Web of Science database and proposed 35 journals which are not mapping sciences journals but suitable for publishing mapping sciences topics. We proposed five GIScience journals, two journals in the field of remote sensing, 13 geographic journals, 13 journals in the field of metrology, civil engineering, transport, forestry and environmental sciences, as well as two computer journals. Eight of the proposed 35 journal are open access journals and full-text articles of 21 other journals are available to members of the Croatian academic and research community via the PERO online search engine.
