Insights from the Editorial Team

Springer and Palgrave Editorial Team

The Geography programmes at Springer and Palgrave offer students, researchers and practitioners comprehensive coverage of the discipline and we continue to publish topical and timely research aligning key content with the Sustainable Development Goals. Our book programmes focus on physical geography (geomorphology, climatology, hydrology, biogeography, pedology) as well as a strong presence in human geography (cultural, economic, urban, gender, population, migration, development and health geography). In response to society’s global challenges we continue to publish content covering both multi- and interdisciplinary approaches in Integrated Geography, focusing for example on critical environmental topics such as water governance, sustainability, resilience, climate change adaptation and energy transitions. Our exciting and diverse portfolio comprises major reference works, edited collections, monographs, textbooks and our ever popular short format Pivots and Briefs – ideal for both researchers and practitioners. We look forward to working with you in 2021 and don’t hesitate to contact us with your publishing ideas. Enjoy browsing a selection of our publications from 2020!
