Journal of Economic Geography

Economic Geography

Owned by Clark University since 1925, Economic Geography is an internationally peer-reviewed journal that is consistently ranked in the top tier of geography journals in the ISI Social Sciences Citation Index. The journal’s editorial team is committed to publishing original research that makes leading-edge advances within and beyond human geography, contributing significantly to scholarship in fields such as economics, development studies, management studies, and sociology. 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.

 Clark Labs

Based within the world-renowned Graduate School of Geography at Clark University, Clark Labs is dedicated to the research and development of geospatial technologies for effective and responsible decision making for environmental management, sustainable resource development and equitable resource allocation. Clark Labs, under the direction of Prof. Ron Eastman, is best known for development of pioneering geospatial software products. IDRISI was the first GIS software system specifically targeted at a microcomputer platform. Since its introduction in 1987, it has grown to become one of the most widely used raster systems of its type with installations in more than 180 countries.

Partnering with such organizations as the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Esri Inc., Conservation International, World Conservation Society, USDA, and the United Nations, Clark Labs leverages its academic base to develop innovative and customized research tools, provide software solutions to organizations in need and apply geospatial expertise to a range of real-world problems. Clark Labs has the largest proportional research and development (R&D) budget in the industry devoted to the analytical development of geographic information technology. More
