Environment, Space, Place (ESP)

Environment, Space, Place is a peer-reviewed transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the study of environmental, spatial, and place-oriented dimensions of knowledge. It fosters open yet rigorous exchange among scholars from various fields who engage these common themes, from environmental philosophy to architectural theory, historical geography to the history of science, and is committed to the view that such exchange can both strengthen and transcend disciplinary approaches.

Subject Matter and Scope of Journal

Environment, Space, Place welcomes contributions that seriously engage environmental, spatial, or place-oriented dimensions of knowledge and that present this engagement in ways that are meaningful beyond the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines. It publishes innovative and paradigm-challenging work by scholars in many fields, including philosophy, geography, history, art and architectural theory and history, design and planning, musicology, the history and philosophy of science and technology, the history and philosophy of geography and cartography, environmental ethics, sociology, political science, religious studies, literary studies, globalization studies, and a number of area studies.

Environment, Space, Place is the official journal of the International Association for the Study of Environment, Space, and Place (IASESP), which grew out of the late Society for Philosophy and Geography to engage scholarship beyond the boundaries of those disciplines. Since 2009 Environment, Space, Place has pursued a mix of thematic issues and individually-submitted essays; the latter are considered on a rolling basis. Environment, Space, Place also publishes reviews and reports relevant to its central themes.

Double-Blind Reviewing

Environment, Space, Place uses a double-blind review process. All submissions are subject to blind review after approval by the coeditors. When preparing article manuscripts for review, authors should take care to remove all indications of authorial identity.
