Impact Score* 2.3
Journal of Guidance Control and Dynamics is mainly concerned with subjects like Control theory, Control engineering, Spacecraft, Nonlinear system and Optimal control. It concentrates on Control theory topics that focus on Control theory, Control system, Actuator, Kalman filter and Attitude control. Extended Kalman filter is a major topic of Kalman filter research presented in the journal.
The journal features studies on Control engineering, including topics such as Adaptive control. The journal is concerned with the study of Spacecraft and Aerospace engineering in general. Nonlinear control is the primary subject of Nonlinear system works presented in it.
The Optimal control study which was featured in the journal aims to expound on the research in Mathematical optimization.
The published papers mainly tackle studies in Control theory, Control engineering, Spacecraft, Nonlinear system and Optimal control. The most cited articles focus on Control engineering but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Control system, Flight control surfaces and Robustness (computer science). While Spacecraft is the focus of the most cited papers, it also provides insights into the studies of Quaternion and Orbit (dynamics).
Journal of Guidance Control and Dynamics is organized to address concerns in the fields of Control theory, Aerospace engineering, Nonlinear system, Spacecraft and Computer simulation. While Control theory is the key highlight in it, it also covered some subjects on Proportional navigation and Guidance system. Aerospace engineering research featured in it incorporates concerns from various other topics such as Orbital elements, Orbital period and Asteroid.
Topics in Nonlinear system were tackled in line with various other fields like Kalman filter, Flight dynamics and Flight control surfaces. The research on Computer simulation tackled can also make contributions to studies in the areas of Sliding mode control and Monte Carlo method. The work on Trajectory optimization tackled in Journal of Guidance Control and Dynamics brings together disciplines like Nonlinear programming and Convex optimization.
A key indicator for each journal is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.
The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.
The top authors publishing in Journal of Guidance Control and Dynamics (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top authors publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top authors.
Only papers with recognized affiliations are considered
The top affiliations publishing in Journal of Guidance Control and Dynamics (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top affiliations publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top affiliations.
The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions in the journal edition to all articles published within that journal. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the journal.
The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.
During the most recent 2021 edition, 8.37% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 26.40% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 9.14% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 30.46% of all publications and 34.01% were from other institutions.
A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of journals they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same journal from year to year.
The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the journal in relation to all participants in a given year.
The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.
Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing in a journal. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a journal, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).
The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:
The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
