About the Journal

Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society publishes multi-disciplinary international research on the spatial dimensions of contemporary socio-economic-political change. The Journal adopts a focused thematic format. Each issue is devoted to a particular theme selected by the international editorial team.

The aim of the Journal is to understand the formative changes and developments associated with the new spatial foundations of today’s globalizing world. It also examines how changes in the global economy are playing out across different spatial scales. Authors are encouraged to engage with the public-policy implications of the issues they address. The Journal is keen to encourage articles from a diverse range of theoretical perspectives.

The Journal will publish papers that
• present cutting-edge research; and
• provide incisive critical reviews of the ‘state of the art’ of the topic or area in question.
