March 27, 2008: Draw your attention to the Journal of Global Positioning Systems (JGPS)

Dear Colleagues:

We would like to draw your attention to the Journal of Global Positioning Systems (JGPS), which is a peer-reviewed journal that specifically targets to professionals engaged in the research and development in the positioning systems including global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). JGPS, published in June and December each year, is the official publication of the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Global Positioning Systems (CPGPS).

Thanks to the founding Editor-in-Chief, Dr Jinling Wang, and the great support and contributions from the worldwide readers and contributors in the academia, industry and governmental research institutions, JGPS has steadily grown in the past several years to become one of the few journals specialising GNSS and other positioning technologies. In the beginning 2008, the JGPS renewed its editorial management team and have committed to make the best efforts to bring JGPS to its next level of excellence and improve the impacts of the Journal. In order to achieve this objective, we will be working very hard to assist you publishing your latest research and development outcomes in our JGPS in a timely manner. We promise that the full cycle of paper submission, review and publication be efficiently managed by the Editors. However, the key to the success of the Journal in the field is the quality and novelty of the papers regularly published in the Journal. Therefore, we wish to obtain your generous supports, in particular:

  • We would like to solicit your contributions to the JGPS on a regular basis. All CPGPS members are strongly encouraged to submit their high quality papers to the Journal;

  • We hope you can coordinate the submissions of quality papers regularly, for instance, at least one paper per annum from your research team or company;

  • We invite you to actively involve the review process of the Journal submissions;

  • When you publish papers at any Journals and conferences, you are encouraged, if relevant, to refer to at least one non-self-citied paper published in JGPS;

  • The Journal can publish papers selected from non-referred conference papers, subject to regular review processing results, the improvement with respect to the conference paper and permission from publishers of the conference papers.

  • We will introduce annual best paper awards and best reviewer awards. Each year, in late summer, the Editorial Board nominate and vote for up to 2 best papers and vote up to 2 best reviewers.

  • We would appreciate it very much if you would inform us of your position on this matter. We have attached a form for Expression of Interest, for your convenience.

    We look forward to your active contributions and the opportunities of working with you.

    Best regards,
