The Impact Factor of the Regional Studies journal has risen to 1.756.

The Journal’s Editor in Chief Professor Ivan Turok (Human Sciences Research Council, South Africa) is delighted with the news and commented “The elevated impact of Regional Studies is a fitting tribute to the hard work and dedication of our authors, referees and editors, past and present”.

Regional Studies is a leading international journal in theoretical development, empirical analysis and policy debate in the multi- and inter-disciplinary field of regional studies. The journal invites established and upcoming scholars to submit agenda-setting work focusing on economic, environmental, political, and social change aspects of regional (subnational) development and policy-making. Regional Studies is a central forum for debating the most recent results from research on regional development and policy-making from an interdisciplinary perspective.

This increased impact factor means that Regional Studies is now 14/76 in geography, 25/96 in environmental studies and 59/332 in economics.
