The founding aim of Investigaciones Regionales–Journal of Regional Research was to create a prestigious journal through which to disseminate quality research carried out in the broad academic and professional field of regional, urban and territorial studies. The journal was launched by the Spanish Association of Regional Science (AECR) section of the ERSA (European Regional Science Association) and the RSAI (Regional Science Association International). The first issue was published in autumn 2002. Articles and other contributions submitted to this Journal are published either in Spanish, with an abstract in English, or in English. The Editorial Board especially values works with a high added value, both in terms of methodological approach and empirical analysis. The Journal has a multidisciplinary approach, welcoming submissions from fields such as Economics, Geography, Sociology, Land Planning and Political Science, whose scientific focus, originality and added value contribute to the dissemination of new ideas and methodological approaches, strengthening and improving the quality of the publication. The review process of the papers submitted to the Journal follows international standards. All articles, reports and possible collaborations are appraised by the Editorial Board, which applies criteria of scientific interest and quality and requests at least two anonymous external reviews before deciding whether submissions are suitable for acceptance. The journal has an International Scientific Council formed by leading experts from various countries who advise on the quality and scientific content of manuscripts submitted for publication. The journal also has an Advisory Board that suggests topics of interest and identifies potential collaborators, as well as participating in the review process of work submitted for publication, along with an extensive group of national and international partners.

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.
