European Association of Geographers (EUROGEO) har skickat ett mejl till Geografilärarnas riksförening angående bidrag till en specialutgåva av European Journal for Geography i samband med föreningens konferens i Krakow 2023. Mejlet i sin helhet:

European Journal for Geography SCOPUS Q1- Special Issue: Future-Ready Geography
The European Journal of Geography invites submissions for a special issue in connection with the EUROGEO Conference 2023 in Krakow to promote a future-oriented exchange and discussion among scholars from all sub-disciplines of geography as well as geography teachers and faculty leaders on how geography as a science and school subject can prepare for the ”future”. Main research questions are:

  • What theoretical concepts and paradigms will dominate geographic research and geographic education research in the future?
  • What are the critical issues and challenges for geography as a discipline and school subject in the near future?
  • What issues will be central to geography as a forward-looking science?
  • How should geography as a science and school subject respond to environmental, socioeconomic, and political issues of global, regional, and local importance in order to effectively use its potential as an applied science?
  • What methods, techniques, and tools of data collection and analysis efficiently support geographers in conducting forward-looking research and predicting ecological and social change?

Deadline for submissions: July 15, 2023. Please submit your manuscript

SCOPUS will include the European Journal of Geography at the 2023 edition in the subject areas Cultural Studies, Demography, and Urban Studies, in addition to the existing Geography, Planning and Development. This new assignment of subjects means that EJG is placed in quartile 1 (Q1) of SCOPUS and SJR rankings.
