NRC Research Press is a division of Canadian Science Publishing - a not-for-profit publisher


The NRC Research Press journals are Canadian Science Publishing’s flagship suite of award-winning international publications. We publish 20 titles under this imprint, many in continuous publication since 1929.


The journals cover a broad range of scientific disciplines and feature more than 2000 articles each year published on a state-of-the-art electronic platform. These award-winning, high-impact scientific and technical journals have an international readership in more than 175 countries.


In September 2010, the Press transitioned out of the National Research Council of Canada into an independent not-for-profit organization operating under the name Canadian Science Publishing. The new company retained its highly skilled staff and its editorial team comprising some of the world’s leading researchers, and today continues a long tradition of quality and innovation.


Canadian Science Publishing is an independent, not-for-profit scholarly publisher dedicated to serving the needs of researchers and their communities.Visit the Canadian Science Publishing website for more information about our organization, publishing services, support for societies, and other initiatives.

As part of the development of the 2011 National Land Cover Database (NLCD) tree canopy cover layer, a pilot project was launched to test the use of high-resolution photography coupled with extensive ancillary data to map the distribution of tree canopy cover over four study regions in the conterminous US. Two stochastic modeling techniques, random forests (RF) and stochastic gradient boosting (SGB), are compared.

Resource development can have significant consequences for the distribution of vegetation cover and for species persistence. Modelling changes to anthropogenic disturbance regimes over time can provide profound insights into the mechanisms that drive land cover change. We analyzed the spatial patterns of anthropogenic disturbance before and after a period of significant oil and gas extraction in two boreal forest subregions in Alberta, Canada.

We investigated recent ecotone dynamics in the forest–grassland mosaics of southwestern Yukon. Our objectives were to determine (i) if forests are encroaching into grasslands, (ii) if rate and extent of encroachment varies by region or with topographic setting, and (iii) if encroachment is related to climate change and variability.

The economic and ecological damages caused by wildfires are alarming. Because such damages are expected to increase with changes in wildfire regimes, this calls for more effective wildfire mitigation and adaptation strategies. Wildfire adaptation options for forestland owners include purchasing wildfire insurance, which provides compensation to those insured if a wildfire damages their properties.
