Human Geographies – is a biannual publication with a content solely in English which can be viewed at humangeographies.org.ro.
Human Geographies is committed to publish scholarly research and informed commentaries on a wide category of human geography aspects (including urban and rural issues, demography, social, economic and cultural environment), place issues, and space issues. It welcomes contributions from the growing numbers of scholars and practitioners across geography, humanities and social and environmental sciences who are interested in human, economic and cultural geographies. The publication is particularly committed to the development of interpretative approaches to the above mentioned issues. It does not restrict its remit to any particular methodological or theoretical orientation, but publishes both scholarly papers and more speculative pieces designed to further understanding and debate.
The journal also offers space for critical reflection on how practices within the civic, policy, and related fields inform and relate to the journal’s cultural geographic concerns. It acknowledges, presents, and discusses the intellectual and practical engagement with the journal’s interests beyond a narrowly conceived academy. It particularly encourages submissions from practitioners beyond the academy or from collaborations between academics and other individuals and groups from across Europe and all over the world.
Contents include original articles, notes and comments. Regular contributions are drawn from the fields of human geography, economics and economic geography, planning, territorial development, infrastructure development, sociology, population studies and public administration, public policies. The Journal also publishes the occasional ‘state of the art’ article, consisting of an analytical review of the major strands of contemporary thinking in a given topic area.
