Population, Space and Place aims to be the leading English-language research journal in the field of geographical population studies. It intends to:
- Inform population researchers of the best theoretical and empirical research on topics related to population, space and place
- Promote and further enhance the international standing of population research through the exchange of views on what constitutes best research practice
- Facilitate debate on issues of policy relevance and encourage the widest possible discussion and dissemination of the applications of research on populations
- Review and evaluate the significance of recent research findings and provide an international platform where researchers can discuss the future course of population research
- Provide a forum for population researchers to assess and apply philosophical and methodological developments in the social and behavioural sciences
- Encourage quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods approaches to population research
The scope of the journal is international, covering developed and less developed countries and embracing all the main fields of interest in population studies, including:
* Population and society * Fertility, mortality and migration * Quantitative and qualitative methods of population analysis * Ageing populations * Census analysis * Spatial demography * Population policies * Theory and population* Population distribution and change * Population and development
The main content of each journal issue is research articles, but the journal also contains book reviews, and review articles commissioned by the editors which will report current debate or themes.
The editors welcome contributions from researchers in all fields of population studies who are interested in geographical issues.
Each volume will contain six issues. Papers will not normally be longer than 8,000 words. All research papers will be subject to peer review.
