About this journal

The Journal of Geographical Systems (JGS) is an interdisciplinary journal that aims to encourage and promote high quality scholarship on important theoretical, methodological and empirical issues with a central spatial or regional dimension. The intention of JGS is to provide an outlet for innovative research in regional science, urban and regional economics, spatial economics, geography, GIScience, and environmental sciences. Papers in the following subject areas are especially welcome: quantitative economic geography models; spatial decision processes; simulation modeling; complex systems; artificial intelligence; geo-computation; spatial econometrics and spatial statistics; resource management; land use change; transport, migration and communication; regional housing and labor markets; regional economic growth; innovation and regional economic development.
