Starting with issue 1/2022, the former journal Zeitschrift für Wirtschaftsgeographie (The German Journal of Economic Geography) will be relaunched under the new title ZFW – Advances in Economic Geography. With ongoing internationalization of academic disciplines, the journal has made the decision to open up to the global academic community by focusing on English-language publications.
To support the relaunch and invite a broad readership, ZFW – Advances in Economic Geography will be transferred to Diamond Open Access on a year-by-year basis, starting with the 2022 volume. All articles will immediately appear under the Creative Commons license CC-BY, at no publication costs for the authors. The Open Access transformation is based on Subscribe-to-Open, an alternative model that enables the full Open Access transformation of journals through the continuation of existing subscriptions. The prerequisite for successful transformation is that subscriptions are continued to the same extent as before. The editors of ZFW and the publisher De Gruyter would therefore like to thank all subscribers for their support, which has made the transformation to Open Access possible.
ZFW – Advances in Economic Geography aims to become a driver of and contributor to the global knowledge architecture in the field of economic geography broadly defined through its commitment to diversity regarding innovative themes and authors and by pushing for a non-partisan cross-disciplinary agenda. It invites contributions that develop novel conceptualizations and present new empirical insights into economic structures, processes and practices, as well as their variations and outcomes in spatial perspective. Themes of particular interest include the actors and institutions shaping regional economic development, the institutional and socio-economic triggers of localized knowledge generation and innovation, the flows of people, knowledge and resources over distance, the development and persistence of unequal economic geographies worldwide, the global organization of capitalism and its evolution in spatial perspective, the impact of new societal challenges across space, and related topical areas.
