I'm new to publications, so I could use some advice.
I study in the area of agricultural remote sensing, and for a graduate degree, I have developed a method of extracting data from research plots and processing it, with the ultimate goal of looking for statistical differences between breeding plots. This was done in order to create a process for people to follow who are looking to use remote sensing to enhance crop breeding.
As this would be considered a multiple-step 'framework' for data extraction that others could follow, can this be published in a peer-reviewed journal? Using this framework, I have extracted data and have found significant relationships with ground-measured data, indicating that remotely-sensed data can potentially be used to identify certain plant traits. My concern is that since this isn't a traditional "method-based" publication, it might not get published. However, I do have many statistics that were generated as a result of using my newly-developed framework, so there is a lot of statistical analysis that can be included.
Bottom line: Can such a manuscript be published?
