Moravian Geographical Reports

The Journal of Institute of Geonics AS CR, v.v.i.

Open access

Moravian Geographical Reports [MGR] is an international peer-reviewed journal, which has been published in English continuously since 1993 by the Institute of Geonics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, through its Department of Environmental Geography. It receives and evaluates articles contributed by geographers and by other researchers who specialize in related disciplines, including the geosciences and geo-ecology, with a distinct regional orientation, broadly for countries in Europe. The title of the journal celebrates its origins in the historic land of Moravia in the eastern half of the Czech Republic. The emphasis at MGR is on the role of 'regions' and 'localities' in a globalized society, given the geographic scale at which they are evaluated. Several inter-related questions are stressed: problems of regional economies and society; society in an urban or rural context; regional perspectives on the influence of human activities on landscapes and environments; the relationships between localities and macro-economic structures in rapidly changing socio-political and environmental conditions; environmental impacts of technical processes on bio-physical landscapes; and physical-geographic processes in landscape evolution, including the evaluation of hazards. Theoretical questions in geography are also addressed, especially the relations between physical and human geography in their regional dimensions.
