    Quaestiones Geographicae was established in 1974 as an annual journal of the Institute of Geography, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland. Its founder and first editor was Professor Stefan Kozarski. Initially the scope of the journal covered issues in both physical and socio-economic geography; since 1982, exclusively physical geography. In 2006 there appeared the idea of a return to the original conception of the journal, although in a somewhat modified organisational form.

    Quaestiones Geographicae publishes research results of wide interest in the following fields:

    • physical geography,
    • economic and human geography,
    • spatial management and planning,
    • sustainable development (including regional and local development),
    • environmental science,
    • GIS and geoinformation, and
    • tourism and recreation.
