Scope Geographical Research aims to advance innovative, theoretically informed, methodologically rigorous, high-quality work that shows the strength and diversity of all parts of the discipline. Wiley publishes the journal as continuous online content, which is then curated into issues in February, May, August, and November. The journal includes editorials, original academic papers, commentaries, book panel papers, and book reviews, as well as festschrifts and obituaries. The Editor-in-Chief accepts special section proposals. She also organises specialist occasional essays entitled 'Antipodean Perspectives'. These essays are written by discipline leaders as high-level reviews of 'global' developments that show how Geographical Research and geographical scholarship add to and extend international knowledge affecting Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific. Short papers from practising (professional) geographers, and in geographical education, are also welcome.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
