Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Geographical Analysis (GA), in cooperation with the Wiley-Blackwell publishing business, undertook a project to complete the digitizing of all back issues of the journal and make those for the period 1969-2001 free to the academic community; the volumes for 2002-2005 already were, and continue to be, free. This article commemorates the completion of this event late in 2010, drawing upon this new resource to highlight important contributions made through the journal to the geography and spatial sciences community. Besides summarizing publication trends for the journal, in the tradition of Fenneman's Venn diagram conceptualization of overlaps between geography and its cognate disciplines, this article highlights prominent articles published in the journal that contributed to the four themes of urban and economic geography, transportation geography, spatial statistics, and geographic information science.
