FIG Peer Review Journal

ISSN No 2412-916X

In 2008, FIG introduced a double blinded Peer Review Process for papers with an outstanding academic level or best practice. Since then, there has been an option to submit a paper for peer review each year at FIG Congresses and Working Weeks. Approximately 10 per cent of all presented papers at a FIG Conference are peer review papers.  In average 50 - 60 per cent of the submitted papers pass the double blinded peer review process.

The papers that have passed the peer review process and have been presented at a FIG Working Week or Congress will be inlcuded in this FIG Peer Review Journal.

You can read more about the doubleblinded peer review process, guidelines for reviewers and see the lists of reviewers by following the links to the right.

You can search below for a peer review paper. If you want to search for specific themes please visit Surveyors Reference Library in stead. Here all papers, both peer review and non-peer reviewed paper will be shown in search results.
