Call for Papers: Special issue on climate change for the Review of Regional Studies

Review of Regional Studies Special Issue:

Regional Science and Climate Change

Climate change and associated increased frequency of extreme weather events are related to many areas traditionally studied by regional scientists including trade, migration, agriculture, industry location, labor productivity, housing markets, demography, and transportation.  Regional scientists are involved in studying how these diverse areas are impacted by climate change, how these areas contribute to or have the potential to stymie climate change, and how policies might accelerate or ameliorate climate change impacts for populations, regions, and institutions. The Review of Regional Studies will be sponsoring sessions focused on these issues at the upcoming Southern Regional Science Associated Meeting held April 4-6, 2024, in Washington, DC. We will also be publishing a special issue on this topic. We invite submissions to either or both the session at the SRSA conference and/or the special issue.

Extended abstracts (1-page limit) should be submitted by February 29, 2024. The submission should indicate whether the proposed project should be considered for the conference or the special issue or both. Abstract submissions should be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Authors of submitted abstracts will subsequently be invited to submit full manuscripts for the special issue. Those manuscripts will be due May 1, 2024. All manuscripts invited for the special issue will undergo peer review prior to acceptance for publication.

The Review of Regional Studies is provided as a service to the scholarly community by the Southern Regional Science Association. We publish high-quality scholarly research and provide for wide dissemination as an open access journal with no fees of any kind.
