Basic Information

The Boletim de Ciências Geodésicas is a trimestrial publication journal which publishes, preferably in English, original papers such as Articles, Communications / Technical papers, Thesis and Dissertation abstracts in the areas of Geodetic Sciences and correlated ones.

The Journal of Geodetic Sciences replaced the former Journal of the Federal University of Paraná - Geodesy which was published in a serial form albeit not periodically, and it did not have an editorial or advisory board until 1988 in its number 38. The former Journal was limited to the publication of just one article per fascicle, and most times it was an "invited paper" written by professors who were teaching short period courses in the graduate studies of Geodetic Sciences of the Federal University of Paraná.

In 1996, this journal was re-structured and named Journal of Geodetic Sciences - a journal which would be published yearly until 1999, when it became a semestrial journal (January-June and July-December). From then on, an Editorial Board was set up to manage the edition and printing of the Journal with the help of an external Advisory Board highly qualified in the field of Geodetic Sciences and correlated ones to analyse, assess and accept articles which had been submitted to publication.

From 1998 onwards, the Journal would be published every three months (January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December) with three sections: Articles, Communications/Technical Papers and Abstracts. Due to the high number of submitted articles, an Editorial Board with Associate Editors in each Area was set up (Geodesy and Surveys, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Cartography and Geographic Information Systems) keeping the Editorial Board for assessing and offering written analyses on the submitted papers. The Editors are entitled to accept or not the papers submitted for publication provided that they are adequate to the Bulletin editorial line

In 2005, all the numbers of the Journal of Geodetic Sciences which had been published since 1997 became available to users in PDF format through the electronic service of Journals of the Federal University of Parana (SER) in ; indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and in the Science Citation Index Expanded (Scisearch).

The Journal of Geodetic Science has a pioneering standard in Brazil, and it is part of a program of Exchange and Donation among national and international Institutions aiming at the publication of articles which would interest researchers and professionals of those Institutions.

The shortened form Bol. Ciênc. Geod. (Online) which stands for the Boletim de Ciências Geodésicas may be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references.
