The Journal of Geographical Systems (JGS) is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed academic journal that aims to encourage and promote high-quality scholarship on new theoretical or empirical results, models and methods in the social sciences. It solicits original papers with a spatial dimension that can be of interest to social scientists. Coverage includes regional science, economic geography, spatial economics, regional and urban economics, GIScience and GeoComputation, big data and machine learning. Spatial analysis, spatial econometrics and statistics are strongly represented.
One of the distinctive features of the journal is its concern for the interface between modeling, statistical techniques and spatial issues in a wide spectrum of related fields. An important goal of the journal is to encourage a spatial perspective in the social sciences that emphasizes geographical space as a relevant dimension to our understanding of socio-economic phenomena.
Contributions should be of high-quality, be technically well-crafted, make a substantial contribution to the subject and contain a spatial dimension. The journal also aims to publish, review and survey articles that make recent theoretical and methodological developments more readily accessible to the audience of the journal.
All papers of this journal have undergone rigorous double-blind peer-review, based on initial editor screening and with at least two peer reviewers.

KN - Journal of Cartography and Geographic Information is dedicated to theoretical, applied and empirical approaches of cartography and geovisualization. We understand cartography as a science and technique to analyze, visualize and communicate spatial information. Cartography is the cross-over discipline in the field of spatial and geo sciences, including geoinformation science.
Cartography addresses spatial questions from a variety of disciplines, including geography, environmental sciences and social sciences, using methods and tools developed at the interface with neighboring domains such as geodesy, GI Science, and spatial cognition.
These questions can put different emphasis on theoretical fundamentals, methods, techniques and applications.
KN - Journal of Cartography and Geographic Information is the only cartographic journal of the German language area. The journal is among the oldest cartographic periodicals worldwide. It was established in 1951 as the journal of the German Society of Cartography (DGfK). In 1976, the journal has become the joint periodical publication of DGfK, the Cartographic Commission of the Austrian Geographical Society (ÖKK), and the Swiss Cartographic Society (SGK).
The journal publishes four issues per year. All articles are peer-reviewed. Furthermore, there are short articles on recent technical developments in practical applications with geodata. The journal reports on national as well as international conferences and other events concerning the above-mentioned fields. Supplementary sections comprise regular accounts of the activities in the German, Austrian and Swiss cartographic societies and business news from private-sector-companies, government agencies and academia. In addition, there are book reviews and a calendar of cartographically relevant events. Since 2009, the journal is indexed in Scopus.
