Navigator Notes: Editorial Highlights from the Editor-in-Chief

Richard B. Langley

Abstract: Welcome to the Fall 2022 issue of NAVIGATION. In this issue, we again feature articles on a wide range of topics including the instrumentation group delays of BeiDou satellites, the gain patterns of GPS satellite antennas, time transfer for a lunar navigation system, and several articles on detecting jamming or spoofing of GNSS signals and navigating in environments where signals are denied. We are proud to announce that our journal impact factor (JIF) for 2021 is 2.472. This represents a 19% increase in the JIF over the previous year and a whopping 340% increase since 2014. Note that the increase is independent of NAVIGATION moving to full open access (OA) as that didn’t happen until the beginning of 2022. Rather, the increase in the number of cited articles was likely due to more OA articles being published in the past two years, and increased promotion of NAVIGATION articles through social media, video abstracts, and webinars. Of course, we also maintained the high-quality level of articles appearing in the journal thanks to our talented authors and the dedicated team of reviewers and associate editors. ION will continue to promote the research of journal authors through compulsory video abstracts hosted on the ION website. The latest video abstracts are documented below. ION also engages with the PNT community, through its webinar series, to highlight current topics of interest to the community. The most recent webinars are also documented below. Remember, we have a dedicated website for our journal: From the home page, you can find the current issue, early view articles to be compiled into the next issue, recent archived issues, and other information about the journal. The full archive of NAVIGATION is available on the ION website: https://www.ion. org/publications/browse.cfm.
