Spatial Economic Analysis 

Spatial Economic Analysis is our pioneering economics journal dedicated to the development of theory and methods in spatial economics.  As spatial perspectives and spatial econometrics become increasingly recognised as a valuable sub-discipline among mainstream econometricians, the emergence of geographical economics has stimulated new theoretical tools, analytical methods, models and techniques of spatial data analysis and data visualisation. SEA welcomes the development, testing and application of theories of ‘new economic geography’ and policy-oriented paper within the broader sphere of spatial economics.

Area Development and Policy 

Area Development and Policy is our relatively new journal that engages the development of the global South/Greater BRICS and transformation of the modern world. It examines relationships between economic and political organisations, governance, ways of life and work, as shaped by the inter-relationships between regions, cities and rural areas.  ADP recognises the different global approaches to conceptualising, conducting and reporting on research and focuses on the Greater BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and other emerging economies), publishing research emerging from these countries and from the wider developed world. It makes globally available work that would not otherwise be published in English language international journals.  It aims to expand common ground while accepting the differences, to improve and increase mutual communication, cooperation and shared learning across different economic, political, cultural and geographical contexts.
