Peer Review Process

Submissions in the peer-reviewed article category undergo double-blind peer review; those accepted for publication must meet the highest standards of scholarship, address important research problems and issues, and appeal to a diverse audience. Articles should be submitted online, in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF file format. Each manuscript is reviewed by the editor, one or more members of the editorial board, and at least one external reviewer. By uploading to the CP website, authors agree to not submit the manuscript elsewhere until the CP editor has reached a decision. Any submitted manuscript must not duplicate substantial portions of previously published material.

 

Publication Frequency

Cartographic Perspectives releases three issues annually. Accepted submissions will be posted as open access as soon as they are copyedited and laid out.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
