AJRS Guide for Contributors

The Australasian Journal of Regional Studies (AJRS) is a refereed journal published by the Australia and New Zealand Regional Science Association International Inc. This non-profit organisation is dedicated to improving our understanding of regional economic and social conditions and development processes in both the Australasian region and the world at large through research and the discussion of ideas. We welcome contributed articles falling within the broad disciplinary scope of economics, geography, urban and regional planning, demography, environmental resource management, and related public policy.

Articles may be theoretical, philosophical, or empirical in spirit. For example, AJRS regularly publishes (a) cutting edge theoretical and empirical articles on the processes shaping regional economies; (b) analyses of current and emerging regional economic and social conditions often employing innovative data sets and statistical techniques; (c) analyses of short to medium term prognoses for regional development resulting from globalisation, changing macro- and micro-economic settings, or emergent technologies – among other things, and (d) penetrating conceptual, philosophical or ideological articles on the capacities of various tiers of government or communities to develop strategies to remedy or ameliorate regional problems identified through (a) to (c).

Manuscripts should be sent electronically to The Editors at journal@anzrsai.org.
