European Spatial Research and Policy

Redaktor naczelny:
prof. dr hab. Tadeusz Marszał

European Spatial Research and Policy is an international review concerned with the problems of social and economic space organisation at a local, regional and supranational level. The journal comprising both theoretical and empirical aspects of spatial analyses is aimed at academics, policy-makers and practitioners interested in a broad range of spatial development in contemporary Europe. The scope of the journal is defined by the concepts of space, environment, society and economy rather than by names of specific disciplines.

Its main areas of interest include i.a. regional policy, spatial planning, European integration processes, locational studies, labor market developments, foreign investments, environmental problems and other crucial issues influencing the shape of contemporary and future European space. Contributions prepared by geographers and regional scientists, as well as economists, planners, architects, sociologists and historians who undertake spatial research within their respective disciplines reflect the interdisciplinary character of the review. European Spatial Research and Policy is published annually as one volume consisting of two issues and includes refereed articles, notes, commentaries, reports and book reviews. The journal, being itself a result of close academic links of scholars and universities representing different countries, is an important forum for international exchange of information and opinions in the field of spatial studies.

Review process

All scientific articles undergo a process of blind peer review  (authors and reviewers do not know their identities). Contributions are reviewed by at least two independent reviewers from outside the unit (department) to which the author of the article is affiliated (at least one reviewer should be affiliated to a foreign institution). The review is prepared in written form and is concluded by a clear conclusion whether the article may be published in the journal or should be rejected. The review form is published on the journal website.

Authors should reveal their share in the contribution (with their affiliation), indicating author of the concept, thesis, methods etc. – the person submitting the article for publication is responsible for delivering this information. Contributions submitted for publication will be checked for ghostwriting and guest authorship (the relevant information on scientific unreliability will go to the institutions employing the authors, scientific societies, etc.). Authors should inform the editors about the sources of financing their publication and contribution of research and development institutions, societies and other entities. All cases of scientific unreliability, violating and breaking the rules of scientific ethics, will be exposed by the editors.
