  • Open Access Policy

    In response to the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications, Cartographica has developed a plan to ensure our authors are able to comply with the policy. There are two open access options allowed by the Tri-Agency, green and gold:

    Green Open Access
    Twelve (12) months after publication of the version of record (i.e., the article after copyediting, tagging, typesetting, etc.), the author may deposit a copy of the accepted article in their institutional repository with a DOI or direct link to the version of record. Please let us know when the deposit is made so that we can update our records.

    Gold Open Access
    At publication, the final version of record will become freely available on our primary platform, utpjournals.press. The Author Publication Charge is $3,000.

    Special Issues
    Proposals are encouraged and will be reviewed by the journal editors. A special issue should be organized by the special issue editor(s) around a specific content area or methodology that may represent a large-scale international development; a single-topic monograph providing an extensive look at one particular area of cartography; or a collection of manuscripts presented at a conference or workshop. Manuscripts will be double-blind peer-reviewed, and the special issue editor(s) is/are expected to work with authors until the special issue meets the standards of manuscripts published in the journal. Content, timeliness of the topic, thoroughness of the proposal, relevance for the journal’s readership, and production schedule are among the criteria used for selection.

    Technical Notes and Ephemera
    The Technical Notes and Ephemera section includes research notes, technical information, opinions, news items, and occasional humour and trivia related to all aspects of cartography, geographic information, and geovisualization, including:

    • newsworthy events and issues (local, national, and international)
    • education and training issues
    • research summaries from universities and government agencies
    • commentaries on ideas and products
    • evaluation of maps and data sources
    • library and Internet resources
    • tips for cartographic production
    • humour and trivia

    All submissions to this section are encouraged: these will normally be of shorter length than full journal articles (2-6 pages). Those of interest to the international community and materials of interest to a broad audience will be given priority for publication. Where appropriate, peer review will apply. Links to web pages and references to contemporary resources are encouraged, to include material that may not otherwise be available in published journals.

    Special Issue: Discrete Global Grid Systems (DGGS)

    Download Call for Papers: PDF | DOCX

    With the advent of Geospatial Information Science and Technology (GIS&T) and the explosive growth in both the variety and volume of geospatial resources, the role of Discrete Global Grid Systems (DGGS) as an “information grid” is more and more recognized. Based on a theory first introduced thousands of years ago by Plato and Archimedes and the outcomes of a formal development that began in the 1980s, DGGSs have evolved in both the theory and practice to the point that the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) adopted them last October as a new standard “that improves the way information is referenced to the earth.”

    The editorial team of Cartographica invites paper submissions of original research from the communities focusing on the development and application of Discrete Global Grid Systems (DGGS). Topics include but not limited to:

    • Cartographical aspects of DGGSs,
    • Advances in Geovisualization using DGGSs,
    • Modelling spatio-temporal data using DGGSs,
    • Interoperability within and between different DGGS implementations,
    • Evaluation and comparative analysis of DGGSs,
    • Query processing and indexing mechanisms of DGGSs resources,
    • Applications of DGGSs in various domains, and/or
    • Digital Earth and DGGS Software tools.

    The papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in a special issue of the Cartographica in Spring 2019.

    Important Dates:

    Paper Submission May 1, 2018
    Decisions to Authors July 15, 2018
