NAVIGATION: Journal of The Institute of Navigation

ISSN 0028-1522

NAVIGATION is a quarterly journal published by The Institute of Navigation. The journal publishes original, peer-reviewed articles on all areas related to the science, engineering and art of Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) covering land (including indoor use), sea, air and space applications. PNT technologies of interest encompass navigation satellite systems (both global and regional), inertial navigation, electro-optical systems including LiDAR and imaging sensors, and radio-frequency ranging and timing systems, including those using signals of opportunity from communication systems and other non-traditional PNT sources. Articles about PNT algorithms and methods, such as for error characterization and mitigation, integrity analysis, PNT signal processing and multi-sensor integration, are welcome. The journal also accepts articles on non-traditional applications of PNT systems, including remote sensing of the Earth’s surface or atmosphere, as well as selected historical and survey articles.

As of 2020 NAVIGATION has a 2.1 Journal Impact Factor (JIF). The JIF of an academic journal is a measurement tool used to calculate the yearly average number of citations to recent articles published in a journal and is an indication of the relative importance of the journal within its field. It is generally recognized that journals with higher impact factors are deemed more important than those with lower ones due to its citation rate. This JIF ranks NAVIGATION in the top ten academic journals in its class.

A searchable archive of past issues is available online, along with tables of contents from each issue listed chronologically.
