Journal of Geodesy and Geodynamics (JGG) is an international journal with a Chinese heart. JGG is committed to the publication of quality scientific papers in English in the fields of geodesy and geodynamics from authors around the world. JGG is a quarterly publication with the aim of promoting an integral approach to geodesy and geodynamics, and deepening the application of geodesy in various fields of geoscience. It publishes research achievements in:
1) theories and methods of geodesy;
2) crustal movement and deformation research by geodetic, geologic, hydrological, and geophysical approaches;
3) earthquake hazard assessment research by geodetic approaches;
4) results of satellite gravimetric and other space geodetic observations.
Submitted manuscripts must be original, and must present results of significance that will be of interest to an international audience. Papers must be prepared to international scientific standards, and papers will be reviewed and evaluated in English. Chinese authors who need assistance with English should contact the Editorial Office. Papers must not have been published, or submitted for publication, elsewhere previously or concurrently.
JGG does not have strict page limits, although papers are expected to be succinct and to the point. In addition to regular scientific papers, JGG encourages the publication of short papers documenting important data sets, called Data Notes. These short papers document useful and important data sets of broad interest, and should include enough information for users to use the data effectively. The data sets themselves would normally be electronic supplements to the papers, if they cannot be presented in full within the paper itself.
Manuscripts should be formatted in a single column, double-spaced or 1.5-spaced, to make it easy for reviewers or editors to mark up the manuscript. Referencing should follow the journal’s standard format.
References are numbered, ordered sequentially as they appear in the text.
1). References are marked in the text with superscripts.
2). References in the reference list are in the style: authors, article title, journal name, year of publication, volume number and the issue number in parentheses, followed by a colon and the page number (if available), DOI (if known) comes last.
3). All authors are included, and they are listed surname first, then given names, first letter capitalized.
4). Annotate the references that are not in English.
5). References to websites are in the style: title of cited page, URL in full.
