Rural Landscapes: Society, Environment, History is a peer-reviewed, open access journal dedicated to landscape research and interdisciplinary communication. Rural Landscapes aims to be a leading academic forum for the blending, contrasting and bridging of contemporary and historical landscape studies that engage with environmental and societal perspectives on rural landscapes in all parts of the world.
The journal accepts contributions from a broad range of research fields, such as historical ecology, political ecology, rural development, landscape ecology, palaeo-ecology, archaeology, anthropology, sociology, history, agriculture, forestry and geography.
Later this year, on 27th November 2019, we celebrate five years of communicating landscape research across disciplines. I like to thank all who have contributed as editors, reviewers and authors since the launch of the journal. I am particularly happy with the quality of the peer-review comments that we have received on submitted manuscripts. Many authors have specifically highlighted the value of the dedicated and insightful peer-review they received. I am also glad to see that the articles we have published are gaining attention and citations.
Proposals for themed collections of articles (special issues) are also very welcome. Should you have a suggested theme, conference proceedings, or existing collection of research output, then please get in touch. Themes can have a wide or narrow focus, and an advantage with publishing themed collections with us is that they can include articles from different disciplines (using different writing styles) as long as they fit with the focus and scope of the journal.
