Changes to Irish Geography
Volume 47(1) of Irish Geography will be the last time we will produce a hard-copy version of the journal. As you will be aware, we have moved to an on-line publishing model and in future all issues will be available via our website www.irishgeography.ie.
The GSI committee thank you for your patience while making this transition which will give us considerable freedom to ensure the best path for the journal. We would ask all members to register on www.irishgeography.ie. This will allow you to browse current and past issues of IG - this is also the pathway for submissions to the journal.
Call for expressions of interest - editor of Irish Geography
Irish Geography (IG) is the peer-reviewed journal of the Geographical Society of Ireland and has been published since 1944. An early editorial decision was to concentrate on the geography of Ireland and this has been maintained ever since. More recently, to reflect the changing context and increased importance of globalization and migration to Ireland, an editorial decision was made to extend the scope of the journal to include contributions on the Irish diaspora and overseas networks. In addition to research articles, the journal publishes shorter commentaries, topical reviews, theoretical discussions and book reviews.
In this, its 75th year of publication, IG has moved to an online management system (http://irishgeography.ie/index.php/irishgeography) that streamlines the submission and tracking of articles and the eventual publication on the IG website in two annual issues. IG has had exceptional editors that have maintained its high standard often during difficult economic circumstances. Many of the papers published in IG are seminal works on Irish geography and ensuring its sustainability is a core objective of the GSI.
The Geographical Society of Ireland (GSI) is seeking expressions of interest from individuals to become Editor of Irish Geography for the period 2015-2018. We would ask that expressions be in the form of a one-page statement that outlines your motivation to be Editor, your editorial experience and your vision for its development.
Please submit your statements to Karen Keaveney (Secretary of the GSI) by April 30, 2015. at Karen.Keaveney(at)ucd.ie .
The Editor will be appointed at the Annual General Meeting of the GSI to be held during the Conference of Irish Geographers (QUB, 21-24 May 2015) and the term of office will start on June 1st 2015.
