About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The Acta geographica Slovenica journal is issued by the ZRC SAZU Anton Melik Geographical Institute, published by the ZRC SAZU Založba ZRC, and co-published by the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts.

Acta geographica Slovenica publishes original research articles from all fields of geography and related disciplines, and provides a forum for discussing new aspects of theory, methods, issues, and research findings, especially in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe.

The journal accepts original research articles and review articles. Articles presenting new developments and innovative methods in geography are welcome. Submissions should address current research gaps and explore state-of-the-art issues. Research-based on case studies should have the added value of transnational comparison and should be integrated into established or new theoretical and conceptual frameworks.

The target readership is researchers, policymakers, students, and others who are studying or applying geography at various levels.


Since 1981 the journal has been included in Scopus, and since 2003 in Science Citation Index Expanded. It is one of the Slovenian scholarly journals most cited abroad. For the details see Indexing chapter.
