Focus and Scope

Irish Geography is a multi-disciplinary journal that publishes a range of full and short articles, commentaries and reviews on or about Ireland's geographies. Articles take a number of forms and all submissions are welcome. Longer articles would document substantial pieces of original research across a range of geographical areas and subjects. Shorter submissions, which might include short empirical pieces, theoretical commentaries, subject reviews and other types of commentary, would also be welcome. Special Issues are also encouraged on specific topics from human, physical and environmental geographies. The journal also publishes Book Reviews of recent work published in Ireland and beyond.

Peer Review Process

The journal adheres to standard double blind review processes. All submissions will be sent to two reviewers who will review the work in terms of innovative content, relevance to the Journal's aims and scope and high-quality writing and presentation. The normal time given to reviewer's will be four weeks in the first instance, followed by period of four to six weeks for resubmission and a further four weeks for second review and final verdict. The journal is especially keen to make the review process as quick as possible for potential authors. It should also be noted that submissions that do not meet the journal's aims and scope or are otherwise deemed unacceptable by the Editor, will be acknowledged and returned to the original authors.

 

Publication Frequency

The current publication schedule is as follows;

The journal will appear twice a year, in May and November.

Online copies of accepted articles, will after proofing, be made available on line.
