How to publish in this journal


cultural geographies is an international journal of peer-reviewed scholarly research on and theoretical interventions into the cultural dimensions of environment, landscape, space, and place. We encourage papers that engage the cultural politics of geographical issues. cultural geographies is particularly committed to the development of methodologically rigorous interpretive approaches that explore how meaning, materiality and/or practice are implicated in the (re)production, maintenance and transformation of cultural worlds as they are materially constituted, represented, imagined, and lived. We do not restrict our remit to any particular methodological or theoretical orientation, but publish both empirically grounded, and theoretically speculative pieces designed to further understanding and debate. We welcome contributions from scholars and practitioners across the arts, humanities, and social and environmental sciences. Join the conversation about this journal

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.
