Editors, accomplishing the Journal's editing as a voluntary work, place emphases on rapid and high quality work. Therefore both the authors and the referees are expected to make efforts which are appreciated by the Editorial Board in advance. The responsible publisher is the acting director of the Institute (EPSS). Publishing costs are covered from grant money, the sponsorship of scientific organizations (e.g. Soproni Tudós Társaság) and from subsidy of the Seminar Series on Geomatics organized by EPSS in every two years.
In order to help the common work of the editors, the referees and the authors, it is suggested to peruse the instructions for authors and reviewers, what can be found at the links below.
