The Moravian Geographical Reports [MGR] is a peer-reviewed international journal that has been published in English continuously since 1993 by The Czech Academy of Sciences, Institute of Geonics, through its Department of Environmental Geography. The journal followed the traditions of the Reports of the Institute of Geography of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, which were published from 1963 to 1992. The title of the journal celebrates its origins in the historic lands of Moravia in the eastern half of the Czech Republic.
As a general purpose geographical journal, MGR receives and evaluates articles contributed by both human and physical geographers, as well as by other researchers who specialize in related disciplines, including the social sciences (environmental studies, regional and urban planning, urban studies, etc.), geosciences and geo-ecology. The MGR aims to publish rigorous and impactful research on topics responding to 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; the spatial organization of daily urban systems; the quality of life and spatial behaviours; regional perspectives on the influence of human activities on landscapes and environments; environmental impacts of socio-technical processes; and geographic processes in landscape evolution, including the evaluation of hazards. Theoretical questions in geography are also addressed, especially the relations between human and physical geography in their regional dimensions. The journal has a distinct regional orientation, broadly for countries in the European Union. Submissions dealing with regions outside of Europe are not accepted, except for invited contributions to thematic Special Issues.
The MGR has been indexed in the SCOPUS database since 1993. In 2012, the MGR was selected for coverage in the WEB OF SCIENCE (Thomson Reuters/Clarivate Analytics) products and customs information services. Beginning with Volume 19 (2011), this publication is indexed and abstracted in the Social Science Citation Index ®, Current Contents Connect ®, Journal Citation Reports / Social Science Edition ®.
The Moravian Geographical Reports is an open-access journal, publishing electronic articles in the “platinum” open-access mode (i.e., no fees for readers and no article processing charges or publication fees for authors). MGR is published four times per year -- at the end of every third month of the year. Beginning with Volume 21 (2013), the electronic contents are published also on the De Gruyter / Sciendo publishing company website. Starting with Volume 28 (2020), the journal will be published only in electronic form.
