RGS Guide to Publishing in Geography

The RGS-IBG along with Wiley-Blackwell have released Publishing in Geography: A Guide for New Researchers. The 64 page guide is available for free both through an online viewer and a handy downloadable PDF version. The publisher suggests that their “aim was to create an accessible guide to showcase the best ways to publish, and to encourage new researchers to publish their research.” No matter what level of the publishing process you are at this might be a handy guide to look through. The document, as expected, focuses on formal publishing in print journals, but there are sections on electronic journals and the relatively new Open Access models that exist. The fact that the guide mentions these at all is promising in my view, but that’s just me 🙂
