  • Hello from your Geography, Planning and Development Publisher!

    2014 was a great year for me, getting to know my portfolio of journals, and meeting many editors, authors and students. This year, I'm looking for exciting new Special Issues on topical themes, so do get in touch with any proposals. I also hope to meet many more early career researchers and students at conferences, universities and meetings. Let me know if I can be of any help in explaining how to get published, or any other aspect of the journals publishing industry; I love hearing from you.

    I'd now just like to wish you all a very happy, productive and successful 2015, whatever your plans may be.
