ARTIFICIAL SATELLITES, Journal of Planetary Geodesy
NOTE TO CONTRIBUTORS
| NOTE: |
submitting new articles takes place only via the Editorial Manager platform
General. ARTIFICIAL SATELLITES is a journal of space research, affiliated to the Space Research Centre, Polish Academy of Sciences. It offers a forum for scientific publications on such aspects of geodesy, geodynamics, space physics and space engineering as positioning, satellite geodesy, gravity field, geoid and heights, tides, reference frames, Earth rotation, physics of ionosphere and troposphere, near Earth space environment, Solar physics, physics of the heliosphere, photogrammetry, remote sensing and aerospace engineering. 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. Within 7 days, the Managing Editor or Subject Editor decides whether to qualify the submission for review procedure. In case of a positive evaluation, the manuscript is reviewed by two reviewers who are experts appointed by the Managing Editor or the Subject Editors; the deadline for preparing a review is 30 days. 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 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 Managing Editor together with the proper Subject Editor. If the third review is negative i.e. the third reviewer also suggests rejection of the contribution, it is rejected. The average processing time is approximately 90 days.
Costs. Publication is free of charges.
