ARTIFICIAL SATELLITES, Journal of Planetary Geodesy

NOTE TO CONTRIBUTORS


General. ARTIFICIAL SATELLITES is a journal of planetary geodesy, affiliated to the Centrum Badań Kosmicznych Polskiej Akademii Nauk (Space Research Centre, Polish Academy of Sciences). It offers a forum for scientific publications on such aspects of geodesy and geodynamics as positioning, satellite geodesy, gravity field, geoid and heights, tides, reference frames, Earth rotation. We accept original papers of fundamental nature, i.e. concerning new ideas, theories and processing means, as well as those dealing with new applications of the existing methods and technologies. Submitted manuscripts should be written in English (British or American but not a mixture of them); correct spelling and good sentence structure is the responsibility of the author.


Reviewing process. Each paper undergoes a review procedure prior its publication and it is reviewed by two reviewers who are experts appointed by the members of the Editorial Board. The accepted article should be corrected by the author(s) taking into account the remarks or suggestions of both the reviewers. If these remarks or suggestions were not considered the author(s) should explain why they have been disregarded. The reviewers should send the review to the Editor-in-Chief or the Editorial Office not later than one month after receiving the paper. If the contribution is not accepted by both the reviewers, then it is automatically rejected. If the paper is not accepted for publication by one of the reviewers it is sent to third reviewer. If third review is positive then the decision about publishing or rejecting the paper is made by the Editor-in-Chief together with the Editorial Board members. If the third review is negative i.e. the third reviewer also suggests rejection of the contribution, it is rejected.
