Academic journals: Environment and Planning E: Nature and Space

Journal summary: Environment and Planning E: Nature and Space was launched in 2018. It is an interdisciplinary journal of nature-society scholarship. International in scope, the journal considers theoretically robust, empirically rich research from an array of fields including political ecology, environmental justice, science and technology studies, conservation and the environmental humanities. The journal aims to push the ways we understand the uneven, dynamic, and often unjust intersections of nature and space with particular interest in their societal, political, and economic dimensions.

Academic journals: Environment and Planning D: Society and Space

Journal summary: Environment and Planning D: Society and Space is a peer reviewed journal publishing theoretically innovative scholarship that examines the contingent and possible relations between the social and the spatial. Papers may push the boundaries of theoretical debate while remaining contextually driven, attentive to questions of power, and inspired through empirical research.
The journal is committed to interdisciplinary approaches to social, economic, political, and cultural analyses across a range of research sites and topics. It holds equally firm commitments to considering the political and social justice imperatives of research and theory. Thus, theorizing the spatial contours of political violence and possibility are as vital to the journal’s mission as are conceptual debates that drive more abstract, although integral, understandings of space and society.

Academic journals: Environment and Planning C: Politics and Space

Journal summary: Environment and Planning C: Politics and Space is an international journal of critical, heterodox, and interdisciplinary research into the relations between the political and the spatial. It advances debates on the spatialization of politics and the politicization of spatial relations. The journal includes original contributions that integrate empirical and theoretical analyses to engage, advance, challenge, and reframe debates about the political.
Politics and Space values a wide range of critical and radical perspectives and encourages new theorizations, novel methodologies, and decentring ontologies. It encourages research that engages marginalized and oppressed standpoints and critically engages hegemonic forms of power. The journal aims to push the boundaries and potential of research on the political and the spatial by exploring questions including: What is the status of the political in such research? How does thinking politics spatially help us understand pressing contemporary concerns in the world? And how can or should researchers act politically through their scholarship? The substantive scope of Politics and Space extends from urban politics to the politics of international institutions; from political economies of development and empire to political geographies of mobilities and identities; from geopolitics to the governance of environmental crises; and from the spatialities of states and sovereign power to the geographies of social justice.

Academic journals: Environment and Planning B: Urban Analytics and City Science

Journal summary: Environment and Planning B: Urban Analytics and City Science is an international, multidisciplinary journal focused on the application of quantitative, computational, design and visual methods to the spatial and morphological structure of cities and regions.

Areas of methodological interest include geocomputation, spatial statistics, geographical information science, computational modelling, visualisation, agent based modelling, crowdsourcing, big data, optimisation, and urban analytics. Papers are invited that provide empirical evidence for understanding, planning or theorising how urban systems and processes emerge. It welcomes papers that show how formal models can be used to explore how cities and their elements behave, reproduce, evolve, or impact upon urban forms and functions, and on the livability, equality and sustainability of cities. Papers on topical themes such as complexity theory, smart cities, and urban science are encouraged.

Academic journals: Environment and Planning A: Economy and Space

Journal summary: Environment and Planning A: Economy and Space is a pluralist and heterodox journal of economic research, principally concerned with questions of urban and regional restructuring, globalization, inequality, and uneven development. International in outlook and interdisciplinary in spirit, the journal is positioned at the forefront of theoretical and methodological innovation, welcoming substantive and empirical contributions that probe and problematize significant issues of economic, social, and political concern, especially where these advance new approaches. The horizons of Economy and Space are wide, but themes of recurrent concern for the journal include: global production and consumption networks; urban policy and politics; race, gender, and class; economies of technology, information and knowledge; money, banking, and finance; migration and mobility; resource production and distribution; and land, housing, labour, and commodity markets. To these ends, Economy and Space values a diverse array of theories, methods, and approaches, especially where these engage with research traditions, evolving debates, and new directions in urban and regional studies, in human geography, and in allied fields such as socioeconomics and the various traditions of political economy.
