Aims and Scope

Physical Geography Research is a scholarly journal dedicated to advancing the scientific development of geographical sciences and fostering the dissemination of high-quality research articles. The primary objective of the journal is to contribute to the scientific landscape of the discipline, both nationally and internationally, by providing a platform for researchers, scholars, and faculty members in the field of natural sciences and related disciplines to share their scientific findings and insights.

The journal covers a wide range of topics within the field of physical geography, addressing issues, problems, questions, and theoretical and scientific challenges related to various aspects of the discipline. These include, but are not limited to:

  1. Geomorphology: Study of landforms, their formation processes, and their dynamics, including the analysis of landform evolution, erosion and deposition, anthropogenic geomorphology, environmental changes, interactions between tectonic and surface processes.
  2. Climatology and Climate Change: Investigation of atmospheric processes, weather patterns, climate variability, and the impacts of climate change on natural and human systems.
  3. Biogeography: Examination of the spatial distribution of ecosystems, species, and biodiversity, and the factors influencing their patterns and dynamics.
  4. Hydrology and Water Resources: Research on the movement, distribution, and management of water in various natural and human systems, including rivers, lakes, groundwater, fluvial processes and landforms, and watersheds.
  5. Natural Hazards and Disaster Management: Analysis of geomorphic hazards and natural hazards such as floods, earthquakes, landslides, and their impacts on human societies, as well as strategies for their mitigation and adaptation.
  6. Remote Sensing and GIS Applications: Utilization of modeling methods and applications, remote sensing data and geographic information systems (GIS) for mapping, monitoring, and analyzing Earth's surface features and processes. 

The journal welcomes original research articles, reviews, and methodological papers that contribute to the advancement of knowledge in these areas. Interdisciplinary studies that integrate physical geography with other related disciplines are also encouraged.

Physical Geography Research aims to foster a cohesive academic and research environment by facilitating scientific-research communication and interaction. Through the publication of scientific activities and research achievements, the journal promotes professional awareness and generates practical and problem-solving insights in the mentioned fields.

Furthermore, Physical Geography Research aspires to gain recognition and indexing in reputable databases. Indexing in such databases serves to establish the scholarly standing of the journal and expand its reach within the academic community, facilitating wider dissemination and visibility of the published research.

The journal is committed to maintaining rigorous editorial standards, adhering to ethical guidelines, and ensuring the highest level of quality in the published articles. It follows a peer-review process to ensure the scientific rigor and validity of the research submitted for publication.

Physical Geography Research welcomes contributions from researchers, scholars, and practitioners in the field of physical geography and related disciplines, and provides a platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas that contribute to the advancement of geographical sciences.
