Call For Papers
The aim of this interdisciplinary and international journal is to provide a forum for the exchange of original ideas, approaches, methods and experiences in the rapidly growing field of geographical information science (GIScience). It is intended to interest those who research fundamental and computational issues of geographic information as well as issues related to the design, implementation and use of geographical information for monitoring, prediction, and decision making. Published research covers innovations in GIScience and novel applications of GIScience in natural resources, social systems and the built environment, and relevant developments in computer science, cartography, surveying, geography and engineering in both developed and developing countries.

Average processing time from submission to decision is 8 weeks!

Since 2011, IJGIS has offered free colour pages to all its authors.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Spatial Computing for the Digital Humanities
Submission Date: 2017-12-01

We cordially invite you to submit your research to the newest Special Issue of the International Journal of Geographical Information Science. Focusing on the unique field of Geospatial Humanities, this special issue will draw together in its collection the state-of-the-art in the field, and will consitute a landmark publication in spatial humanities research. The special issue will use an open call, and it will draw from the submissions to the ACM SIGSPATIAL Workshop on Geospatial Humanities that will take place in Redondo Beach, California, USA in November 2017. Members of the Programme Committee for the workshop will act as technical reviewers for the submissions to the special issue, and authors of the best papers at the workshop will be invited to submit significantly expanded versions of their ACM workshop papers. Note that the invitation to authors of submissions to the ACM SIGSPATIAL workshop does not guarantee publication in this collection and all submissions will be subject to the standard IJGIS double-blind peer review process. The special issue will look to explore and demonstrate the contributions that modern spatial analysis and other technologies can enable for the study of space and place within and beyond the digital humanities, placing a strong emphasis on new novel concepts or methods in spatial computing for humanities research. Example topics include, but are not limited to: - Spatial and spatio-temporal analysis with GIS for humanities research - Geographical text analysis - Spatial ontologies for humanities research - Agent based modelling and spatial-simulation for humanities research - Development of historical and literary gazetteers - Geographic information retrieval approaches for humanities datasets - Visualization and cartographic representations for humanities datasets - Linguistic approaches for GeoHumanities - Spatio-temporal network analysis for humanities
