Scope

Political Geography is the flagship journal of political geography and advances knowledge in all aspects of the geographical and spatial dimensions of politics and the political. The journal brings together leading contributions in the field and promotes interdisciplinary debates in international relations, political science, and other related fields. While we welcome articles with an empirical focus or that center on policy implications, all research published in the journal is expected to engage with and advance the subdiscipline's conceptual, methodological, and theoretical literature. We encourage contributions drawn from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives, covering all scales of inquiry, and from scholars in all parts of the world. Examples include, but are not limited to, research into: - critical engagement of the theory and practice of geopolitics; - geographies of sovereignty and the state; - peace and conflict studies; - geographies of policy, institutions, and elections; - feminist, queer, and postcolonial engagements with the political; - politics of spatiality, networks, and scale; - intersections of political economy and political geography; - territoriality, mobility, and identity within and across borders; - political ecology, the politics of the environment, and post-human politics.

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.
