Regional Studies Association (RSA) and the Global Network on Financial Geography (FinGeo) are pleased to announce a new journal — Finance and Space. The journal would be online only, with articles published as soon as they emerge from the review and production process. Finance and Space aims to publish and promote state-of-the-art research on diverse aspects of the spatial production of finance and the financial production of space. As such, it will address some of the most profound processes and pressing challenges of our times, including digitization, neoliberalization, financialization, globalization and deglobalization, uneven development, inequality and lack of diversity, (in)security and geopolitics, the environmental crisis, and the role of finance in building more sustainable economies.
Finance and Space will publish contributions to theory, methodology, empirical studies, as well as research relevant to strategy and policymaking. It will promote a global coverage and diversity of research both in terms of authors and the subject matter. While dedicated to a geographical imagination, the journal is founded on the belief that advancing our understanding of the changing finance-space nexus requires an interdisciplinary approach and heterodox thinking. This includes, but is not limited to, political economy and political science, economics and regional science, sociology, anthropology, housing studies, environmental studies, financial history, development studies, and urban and regional planning, in addition to geography, regional studies, and urban studies.
The new journal will begin accepting submissions for peer review starting in January 2023. The official launch is anticipated 2024, with some early accepted articles appearing in late-2023 as part of the 2024 volume.
