Journal Moravian Geographical Reports
Moravian Geographical Reports is an international journal, which has been published in English since 1993 by the Institute of Geonics. We admit articles contributed by geographers and by other researchers who specialize in related disciplines, including the geosciences and the geoecology, with a distinct regional orientation. One central question faced by all concerned scientists today can be posed as follows: What are the roles of ‘regions’ and ‘localities’ in a globalized society, given the geographic scale at which we evaluate them? Our emphasis is concentrated on the regional and locality issues – on questions of regional economy and society, of society in an urban or rural context, on regional perspectives concerning the influence of human activities on landscapes and environments, on the relationships between localities and macro-economic structures in these rapidly changing socio-political and environmental conditions on environmental impacts of technical progress on the landscape, on physical-geographical processes in the landscape including evaluation of hazards. The geographic aspects of a holistic interpretation of regions would be stressed. Theoretical questions in geography, in all of their regional dimensions, are also addressed.
We seek to publish original scientific papers, reports on recent scientific projects, as well as critical evaluations of these contributions to current knowledge, academic announcements, and reviews. Scientific papers and selected academic announcements are reviewed. The journal format is A4, and individual issues contain approximately 60 pages. Contributions may include coloured figures, graphs and maps.
