Geo is a fully open access international journal publishing original articles from across the spectrum of geographical and environmental research. Geo welcomes submissions which make a significant contribution to one or more of the journal’s aims. These are to:

• encompass the breadth of geographical, environmental and related research, based on original scholarship in the sciences, social sciences and humanities;

• bring new understanding to and enhance communication between geographical research agendas, including human-environment interactions, global North-South relations and academic-policy exchange;

• advance spatial research and address the importance of geographical enquiry to the understanding of, and action about, contemporary issues;

• foster methodological development, including collaborative forms of knowledge production, interdisciplinary approaches and the innovative use of quantitative and/or qualitative data sets;

• publish research articles, review papers, data and digital humanities papers, and commentaries which are of international significance.

Referred papers

In addition to papers submitted directly to the journal, Geo will also consider papers referred from other Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and Wiley journals that are participating in the Manuscript Transfer Program. As part of our commitment to speed of publication, and in order to reduce strain on the peer-review system, we have set-up a mechanism to allow a select group of prestigious partner journals to refer high-quality manuscripts to Geo along with any existing peer-review reports, when these journals are not themselves able to accommodate the manuscripts (for example, on grounds of scope or space). For such manuscripts that have existing peer-review reports, the Editors are able to decide whether or not a manuscript is suitable for publication particularly quickly.
