Geographical Research


Geographical Research is the internationally refereed publication of the IAG. The primary objective of Geographical Research is to advance innovative and high-quality work demonstrating the strengths and diversity of all parts of geography. In this endeavour, the journal supports scholarship from the Institute’s several study groups. The Journal includes (but is not restricted to) academic papers, commentaries, book panels, and book reviews. It is published in February, May, August and November each year by Wiley and is available online at any time.

Geographical Research invites select contributions to ‘Antipodean Perspectives’ by authors recognised as leaders in their subfields. These authors provide high-level reviews of ‘global’ developments in that subfield, and to consider how geographical research and scholarship have added to, and extended, international knowledge conducted in or about the region (embracing Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific). Short papers from practising (professional) geographers, and in geographical education, are also welcome.

Editors appointed by the IAG Council manage the journal.
