Social Geography (SG) (Archive)

General Information

Social Geography is, from 2013 onward, co-hosted by Geographica Helvetica (GH).

To maintain the scope of Social Geography and to provide an ongoing publication platform for its particular topics in the future, the journal Geographica Helvetica will publish one "Special Edition Social Geography" per year. These special editions will focus on particularly current or emerging topics in the field of social geography. They will appear in addition to the four regular GH issues published annually.

The content appearing in "Special Edition Social Geography" will be made available through Open Access immediately and printed copies can be ordered on demand.

Antje Schlottmann (former SG managing editor; University of Frankfurt) and Matthew Hannah (former SG chief editor; Aberystwyth University) will act as Guest Chief Editors for the special editions. They welcome suggestions for thematic issues!

Individual contributions in the field of social geography should be submitted to Geographica Helvetica.
