The journal Geographical Research seeks contributions to its special sixtieth anniversary issue. 

Submission deadline 4 March 2022.

Geographical Research is the internationally-refereed publication of the Institute of Australian Geographers Incorporated (IAG) created in partnership with Wiley, and 2022 heralds its sixtieth volume.

To mark and celebrate this anniversary year, the journal team, the IAG, and Wiley are joining together to curate a special fifth issue of the journal. That issue will continue to advance innovative, theoretically informed, methodologically rigorous, high-quality work that shows the strength and diversity of all parts of the discipline and be produced in December following publication of the usual February, May, August, and November issues. We are delighted to call for papers for the anniversary issue.

We are keen to receive submissions from academic and practicing professional geographers working far and wide, at all stages of your careers, across all disciplines and in varied sectors from education to government and the private sector. We include in that call, of course, members of the IAG Council, members of the journal editorial board, members of our Twitter community, our Institute Study Groups.

Papers need to connect to our aims and scope and, for this special publication, might consider some of the following, noting other suggestions are most welcome.
