Scope and Policy
The Boletim de Ciências Geodésicas publishes original papers in the area of Geodetic Sciences and correlated ones (Geodesy, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Cartography and Geographic Information Systems).
Submitted articles must be unpublished, and should not be under consideration for publication in any other journal.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. Articles must be written preferably in English language.
Analysis of papers for Publication
The Editor-in-chief and an associate editor, chosen by the editor-in-chief based upon the article’s thematic and methodological affinity, verify the relevance of the submitted article, its adequacy for the journal’s editorial scope, and other aspects including originality and contribution to the area of submission. Only manuscripts the editors consider relevant to the academic community, and in particular, to the journal’s audience, proceed to further stages of evaluation. The manuscripts that are accepted during this first stage of analysis are sent to review by at least two reviewers indicated by the associate editor.
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 Committee will always decide about the paper publication, taking into account the paper 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 Committee to make the evaluation and publication viable and quick. The submitted papers which were rejected may be presented again provided that they are reformulated according to the comments made by the reviewers and the Editorial Board; in that case the papers will be sent to the same reviewers who revised them previously. The papers submitted to the Journal will be published under the condition that authors accept the Terms expressed in the Creative Commons License.
