The Society has a new journal and, as of today, it is accepting submissions for articles. Geo: Geography and Environment launched this week and is the Society’s first fully open access journal. It joins an established portfolio of prestigious journals – Area, The Geographical Journal and Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers.
Geo is dedicated to publishing high-quality, peer-reviewed articles from across the spectrum of geographical and environmental inquiry. These interdisciplinary aspirations are evident not least in the great scholarly breadth represented by the journal’s editors and its international editorial board.
The inaugural editorial, written by co-editors Professor Gail Davies (University of Exeter) and Professor Anson Mackay (University College London), is available to all online.
“Geo is an online journal, first and foremost,” Anson said ahead of the launch this week. “This opens up new possibilities in terms of the format and media that can be published in a peer-reviewed journal. We hope that researchers will embrace and experiment with the opportunities offered by this new journal.”
All articles will be paid for by authors, institutions or their funders when they are accepted for publication. In this respect, Geo complements the Society’s other three hybrid journals, which are funded primarily through reader subscriptions, but also give authors the option of paying for their articles to be open access immediately.
The journal will publish articles under a choice of Creative Commons Licences, enabling authors to be fully compliant with open access requirements of funding organizations where they apply.
This month’s issue of Sidetracked magazine features a foreword from Society Director Professor Joe Smith.
