Progress in Physical Geography: Earth and Environment

An International Review of Geographical Work in the Natural and Environmental Sciences

eISSN: 14770296 | ISSN: 03091333 | Current volume: 48 | Current issue: 3 Frequency: Bi-monthly

PPG: Earth and Environment is an international journal, encompassing an interdisciplinary approach incorporating the latest developments and debates within Physical Geography and interrelated fields across the Earth, Biological and Ecological System Sciences. Contributions which review progress to date; which blend review material with new and original findings; or which introduce material, methods or techniques at the forefront of current knowledge, while setting directions for future work are welcomed. Authors need not be uncritically exhaustive in synthesizing research on a particular topic but should concentrate on what they consider to be the most promising recent productive trends and developments which are likely to be transformative.

This prestigious journal covers all aspects of:

  • Geomorphology
  • Climatology
  • Biogeography & landscape ecology
  • Human-environment interaction

PPG has an Editorial Board (there are currently eight EB members), which is supported by an international Editorial Advisory Board (EAB). It is published six times per year in paper format and - in Online First - continuously in electronic format.

PPG: Earth and Environment is available to browse online.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

The journal aims to achieve the widest possible international coverage and should consider the relevance of tangential or parallel developments to their fields. In addition, authors are encouraged to evaluate the general significance of research to date, including practical and policy applications where relevant.
