The Society wishes to appoint two new Editors to The Geographical Journal.

The Geographical Journal, established in 1893, is one of the leading journals of geographical research. It publishes original research papers and commentaries from across the discipline and beyond academia with particular reference to issues of public interest. The journal aims to be an inclusive space for critical reflection and experimentation on how geographical research, practice, and thinking can make a difference to policy and action.

The new Editors will be recognised scholars with excellent networks and a strong interest in public geographies or policy-relevant research. They will have a broad interest in the full range of research work undertaken in geography; familiarity with work of the highest international standing in the discipline; a commitment to attracting the best scholarship for publication in The Geographical Journal, while also seeking to encourage submissions from all parts of the world. They will have a commitment to spending the time needed to perform as a proactive Editor, as well as a sympathetic and diplomatic approach to authors and reviewers.

We are seeking to appoint one physical and one human geographer who are able to handle the breadth of current submissions to the journal (see recent papers here) and have a strong vision for how to encourage future submissions in line with the journal’s aims to encourage reflection on issues of public interest. We particularly welcome applications from women and non-binary academics, and those under-represented in the discipline and in Editorial roles.

Applications for the Editor roles should be submitted by Friday 28 June 2024
