CFP: ISPRS Intl Journal of Geo-Information (IJGI) - Special Issue about Geospatial Open Systems

Chaowei Yang

The ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (IJGI) will publish a special issue about “Geospatial Open Systems”. This Special Issue intends to synergize insight about the state of knowledge of open systems scoping, design, implementation, deployment, use, and sustainability for geo-information (geospatial) applications. Manuscripts that broaden and/or deepen insight into these topics are candidates for the Special Issue. 

Scope: Open systems provide free access to geo-data and geo-information in a variety of geospatial domains, such as environmental science and management, human dynamics, transportation planning and management, geo-information crowdsourcing, community organizing, and geosciences, among others. Open systems enable access for almost everyone, barring any illegal activity. Open systems might or might not use open source software as part of the development efforts. Open knowledge systems now in development for various applications promise to transform how people make use of data, information, evidence, and knowledge. The Special Issue explores the past, present, and future of open systems environments addressing data, information, and knowledge for geospatial applications. Any aspect of open geospatial data, information, knowledge, and software systems is a relevant topic as long as the topic is well reasoned and developed in a thorough manner in line with IJGI guidelines. Prospects for development and use of geospatial open source software are relevant for consideration. Software applications addressing these topics are also part of the scope, but the issue is not limited to these topics.

Mhwah, are you aware that this IJGI journal has at the moment a stunning total of 83 "special issues" open, out of which by quick glance 4 have "open systems/source/software" in their title:

Free and Open Source Software and Tools for Environmental Applications
(Editors: Paolo Dabove, Bianca Federici)

31 Oct 2020

Intelligent Systems Based on Open and Crowdsourced Location Data
(Editors: Fernando Terroso-Sáenz, Andrés Muñoz)

31 Oct 2020

Geospatial Open Systems
(Editors: Timothy Nyerges, Piotr Jankowski, Wenwen Li, Chaowei Yang)

OpenStreetMap as A Multi-Disciplinary Nexus: Perspectives, Practices and Procedures
(Editors: A. Yair Grinberger, Marco Minghini, Peter Mooney, Levente Juhász, Godwin Yeboah)

This journal I now consider a borderline predatory one, and will personally not do reviews nor write papers for anymore...

Re: CFP: ISPRS Intl Journal of Geo-Information (IJGI) - Special Issue about Geospatial Open Systems

b.j.kobben

Well, just wanted to make folks aware that there is an ongoing discussion in the GeoSciences about the publisher (MDPI) of this journal  -- some of us (me included) consider it a company that is there to make money foremost and does not care too much about scientific quality. If you want I can send you a summary of some of that ongoing discussion...

Re: CFP: ISPRS Intl Journal of Geo-Information (IJGI) - Special Issue about Geospatial Open Systems

Christian Willmes
In reply to this post by b.j.kobben

Hi Barend,

I just want to point out, that this is very dependent on the specific MDPI Journal. Some MDPI Journals are quite clearly predatory, where others are clearly serious. To say it mildly, IJGI has potential to improve its conduct, from my own experiences with that journal and its review process. But this is also to a large degree not the fault of MDPI, but mostly to to very lazy and careless reviews, be unpaid reviewers (like myself) who need to take more serious time to conduct the reviews. Currently I have an own submission in review, and I think I notice some betterment already, so maybe they got aware of the public discussions on social media?

Best,
Christian
