GI_Forum publishes high quality original research across the transdisciplinary field of Geographic Information Science (GIScience). The journal provides a platform for dialogue among GI-Scientists and educators, technologists and critical thinkers in an ongoing effort to advance the field and ultimately contribute to the creation of an informed GISociety. Submissions concentrate on innovation in education, science, methodology and technologies in the spatial domain and their role towards a more just, ethical and sustainable science and society.
GI_Forum implements the policy of open access publication after a double-blind peer review process through a highly international team of seasoned scientists for quality assurance. Special emphasis is put on actively supporting young scientists through formative reviews of their submissions. Only English language contributions are published.
Contributions are published under a cc-by-nd license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0/).
The GI_Forum Journal is published in two annual issues (end of June / end of November). This allows for improved review and revision routines, ultimately leading to an overall higher quality of the journal.
The GI_Forum Journal is included in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). The Austrian Academy of Sciences Press and we as editors are glad to provide this status as a service to all authors requiring formal Open Access recognition for funding and publishing of their research.
