Geographical Research is the internationally refereed journal of the Institute of Australian Geographers, the national body representing academic and professional geographers in Australia. The primary objective of Geographical Research is to advance geographical research across the discipline and especially to encourage research at the human-physical geography interface. The journal also supports the Institute’s Study Groups in Cultural Geography; Economic Geography; Environmental Sustainability; GIScience, Spatial Analysis and Modelling; Indigenous Issues; Political Geography; Rural Studies and Urban geography. The journal includes academic papers, research reports, essays and book reviews. Short papers from practising (professional) geographers, and geographers in education, are particularly welcome.
Geographical Research is published quarterly by Wiley on behalf of the Institute of Australian Geographers, through Editors appointed by the Council of the Institute.

The IAG is excited to announce the new editorial team for Geographical Research to commence in 2014. Professor Iain Hay (Flinders) is the new Editor in Chief. Dr Amanda Davies (Curtin) is a new editor for the team. Two current editors, Associate Professor Brian Finlayson (Melbourne) and Dr Wayne Stephenson (Otago), will ensure continuity between the outgoing editorial team and the new editorial team. This new editorial team represents a wonderful combination of experience, a range of sub-areas within geography, excellent international links, and the potential for ongoing innovation. We believe that this is a very strong editorial team to build on the achievements of recent years, and to take Geographical Research to a new level in the publishing world for research that is geographical in orientation. Once again, we would like to thank the outgoing team for their dedication, efforts and achievements and we are very happy to introduce to you our new editorial team of Iain Hay, Brian Finlayson, Amanda Davies and Wayne Stephenson.
Articles accepted for Geographical Research are published on-line in Early View, which is available through your library’s electronic subscription.
