INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

 

Scope and Policy

The Bulletin of Geodetic Sciences publishes original papers in Geodetic Sciences and correlated ones (Geodesy, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Cartography and Geographic Information Systems), submitted by researches from national and international institutions.

Submitted manuscripts must be unpublished, and should not be under consideration for publication in any other journal. Previous publication of the paper in conference proceedings would not violate the originality requirements. Manuscripts must be written in English language.

Analysis of manuscripts for Publication

The Editor-in-chief and an Associate Editor, chosen by the Editor-in-Chief based upon the manuscript's thematic, verify its relevance, its adequacy for the journal's editorial scope, and other aspects including originality and contribution to the area of submission. Only the manuscripts which the editors consider relevant to the academic community, and to the journal's audience, will proceed to further stages of evaluation. The manuscripts that are accepted during this first stage of analysis will be double-blind reviewed for at least two reviewers indicated by the Associate Editor. The Advisory Board of the journal consist of professors and research scientists from different regions and countries.

Neither BCG or its Editors are responsible for the opinions, ideas and concepts emitted in the published manuscripts, these being the full responsibility of the author(s).

The Editorial Board will decide about the manuscript publication, considering the manuscript originally sent, the reviewer's opinions and the modifications made by the author. In the modified version (corrected) by the author (due in 60 days after having received the evaluation result), the authors should include a letter to the Associate Editor, specifying the changes and justifying the ones they did not consider applicable (pertinent). Small changes could be made by the Editorial Board to make the evaluation and publication viable and quick.

The submitted manuscripts which were rejected may be presented again along with an item-by-item response to reviewers' comments; in that case, the manuscripts will be sent to the same reviewers who revised them previously. The manuscripts submitted to the Journal will be published under the condition that authors accept the Terms expressed in the Creative Commons License.

The text should be prepared using MS Word for Windows, with maximum of 15 pages including figures, tables and graphics.
