How to publish in this journal


The Regional Science Inquiry Journal (RSIJ) publishes original work that advances scientific dialogue and speculation of knowledge concerned with analytical approaches (methodologies, methods and techniques) to matters and processes in which space, distance or separation play an important role. RSIJ’s topics of interest include, but are not limited to, location theory or spatial/regional economics, location modelling, transportation, migration analysis, land use and urban development, interindustry analysis, environmental and ecological analysis and planning, energy and resource management and planning, urban, rural and regional policy analysis, geographical information systems, and spatial data analysis. In the broadest sense, any social science analysis that has a regional dimension is embraced by RSIJ. The approaches can be either theoretical or empirical, with the use of quantitative or qualitative methods. Contributions that cover issues of international interest, especially in an interregional or cross-border context in the region of Central – South-eastern Europe and the Mediterranean, are particularly encouraged. Applied studies and announcements that concern particularly difficult or special problems, and offer solutions with a high degree of originality or technological effectiveness 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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.
