Author Guidelines

The Bulletin of Geodetic Sciences (BCG – Boletim de Ciências Geodésicas) is intended for the publication of original articles in the following four areas of knowledge: Geodesy and Surveying; Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing; Cartography and Geographic Information Science; and Interdisciplinarity in Geodetic Sciences. Articles written by students, faculty or researchers from any organization, in Brazil or abroad, are accepted.

Manuscripts must be unpublished, and should not be under review in any other journal. Manuscripts must be written in the English language. Previous related publications in other languages, if any, must be cited and discussed in the manuscript.

Ethical guidelines

BCG follows the "Code of Good Scientific Practices" published by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).

Policy against plagiarism and misconduct in research

In accordance with COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) guidelines BCG recommends:

1. Authors must visit COPE's website, to inform themselves about ethics in research;

2. Before submission, authors need to verify the following criteria:

  •  data or analysis of data obtained from published papers must be explicitly cited;
  •  all included authors should satisfy the authorship criteria and none of the researchers involved can be omitted from the author's list;
  •  all co-authors consent with the submission.

3. After the submission:

a) The manuscript is verified through Ithenticate Systems, aiming to identify plagiarism, duplicated submissions and possible frauds in research.
b) The Editorial Board decides whether the manuscript will be sent for review, based on the BCG scope, the plagiarism index and the paper quality/contribution.
