Academic books and journals

The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)'s scholarly publications provide an outlet and support for the dissemination of high quality research across the breadth of the discipline. In 2012, our three main journals alone were accessed online internationally over 1.3 million times.

Find out more below and follow the links for more about individual publications whether you are a member, author, reader, researcher or librarian. Information on our new journal Geo will be available soon.

You can also visit Geography Directions to read about the latest journal articles and geography news stories.

The move towards ‘open access’ (OA) publication of research will have far reaching effects in the UK and elsewhere. Visit our dedicated page on open access and the geographical community for the latest updates.
