The Regional Studies Association is launching a new journal in 2013 entitled 'Territory, Politics, Governance'. It will be distributed to all its members together with the two existing journals 'Regional Studies' and 'Spatial Economic Analysis'. However, before the big launch, we are seeking to appoint a team of editors (including an early career editor) that will help us shape this journal into a high quality academic outlet. For more information please check this link (pdf document).

As explained in the call for editors, Territory, Politics, Governance will engage with topics at the interface between the analysis and practice of territorial development, including:

• Theories of socio-spatial relations, such as territories, places, scales and networks;
• Analyses of territorial governance, politics and policies;
• Globalisation, borderless worlds and geopolitical imaginations;
• States, political economy and territorial interventions;
• Social and political constructions and mobilisations of territorial identities;
• Methodological perspectives on territorial politics and policy.

If you feel that you are up to this challenge and wish to know more about what it would involve read the document above or contact Professor Martin Jones (Chair, Journals Management Committee) msj@aber.ac.uk, Professor Gordon Dabinett (Journals Management Committee) g.e.dabinett@sheffield.ac.uk, or Sally Hardy (CEO of the Regional Studies Association) sally.hardy@regionalstudies.org.
