We publish high-quality work that is theoretically rich and informed by empirical evidence that deepens our understandings of the geographical drivers and implications of economic processes, broadly considered. Economic Geography welcomes submissions that focus on a wide range of topics, deploy primary evidence in support of theoretically significant interventions, and contribute key insights regarding pressing economic, social, development, and environmental questions and challenges.
The journal also plays a central role in supporting and advancing the field of economic geography globally. Professor Jim Murphy is the editor-in-chief and Hilary Laraba is the managing editor.
