The Geographische Zeitschrift (GZ) has helped to motivate and shape debates in Human Geography since 1895. The journal's thematic spectrum extends from cultural, social and political geography to economic geography and other human geographic research fields. The GZ is increasingly internationally oriented, crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries, and supports the further development of human geography in an interdisciplinary context. In its focus upon theoretical and methodological contributions, as well as conceptually informed empirical research, the GZ upholds a high standard of scholarship. The GZ is a double blind refereed journal listed in prominent scientific databases. With online first and open access, it offers attractive formats for the publication of qualified contributions in German or English.
