Focus and Scope

The Bulletin of Geodetic Sciences (BCG) (ISSN: 1982-2170) is a quarterly journal which publishes English - language original articles in Geodetic Sciences and related interdisciplinary sciences.

BCG was founded in 1988, named as “Geodésia” and distributed in printed form. In 1996, it received its current name and adopted an annual frequency. In the following year, the digital edition was started, while keeping the printed edition. In 1999, it became semiannual and since 2008 it is a quarterly publication (March, June, September and December editions). In 2005 BCG was integrated to the Scopus base and in 2011 to the SciELO network. In 2014, it ended its print edition, maintaining only the digital one. In order to expand the reach of contributions, in 2016 BCG started accepting articles in English-language only. In the same period, BCG was integrated into the Web of Science Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), increasing the visibility of authors and their articles.

BCG is a journal dedicated to the dissemination of research and knowledge with an emphasis on the following thematic areas: Geodesy and Surveying; Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing; and Cartography and Geographic Information Systems.

As of June 2020, BCG incorporated a fourth area, called “Interdisciplinarity in Geodetic Sciences”. It aims to meet the demand for more comprehensive investigations, related to more than one thematic area of Geodetic Sciences in connection to other knowledge areas. It seeks contributions employing methodologies from Geodetic Sciences as applied to disciplines such as Oceanography, Hydrology, Meteorology, Geology, Aeronomy and Engineering, among others.

With the four thematic areas above, we expect to accommodate the historical scope of the articles published in BCG, as well as incorporating contributions of an interdisciplinary nature related to Geodetic Sciences.

Contents published since 1997 are available online at the Digital Library of Journals of the Federal University of Paraná.

The Advisory Board of the journal consist of faculty and researchers from different regions and countries.

Neither BCG nor its Editors are responsible for the opinions, ideas and concepts presented in the texts, and the manuscript content is full responsibility of the author.

The BCG Editorial Board is responsible for deciding on accepting the publication of the manuscript, considering the original text, the reviewers's comment and the modifications made by authors.

Rejected manuscripts may be submitted again after being thoroughly revised according to the reviewers' comments.
