Our Journal

Landscape Research, our academic journal, is a fully peer-reviewed and Impact-Factor listed journal containing articles, critical review essays, photo essays and book review forums.

The Journal’s global coverage and wide-ranging disciplinary nature makes it an ideal resource for both landscape academics and practitioners. It is uniquely placed to cover all multi, inter and transdisciplinary research encompassing the breadth of landscape studies.

Published by Taylor & Francis, the journal is well-respected and solidly established with a consistently growing readership, impact factor and citation rates. Our experienced Editorial team, led by Professor Emma Waterton, has a global coverage and outlook with representatives across three continents and a range of expertise.
