The RGS-IBG book series publishes the very best of international academic scholarship, from across geography and cognate disciplines.
Published by Wiley on behalf of the Society, the book series launched in 2000 under the editorship of Nick Henry and Jon Sadler. Since then we have published over 50 titles, which span a wide range of geographical research.
The book series only publishes work of the highest international standing. Its emphasis is on distinctive new developments in human and physical geography, although it is also open to contributions from cognate disciplines whose interests overlap with those of geographers. The series places strong emphasis on theoretically-informed and empirically-strong texts. Reflecting the vibrant and diverse theoretical and empirical agendas that characterise the contemporary discipline, contributions are expected to inform, challenge and stimulate the reader. Overall, our book series seeks to promote scholarly publications that leave an intellectual mark and change the way readers think about particular issues, methods or theories.

What the authors say:
‘The RGS-IBG book series is research-led and in that sense offers both a space to communicate recent research and behind-the-scenes expertise in assisting authors with developing their work. It is unusual to find an academic expert panel as well as referees reviewing your proposal, an editor with expertise in your area and rigorous peer review when you hand over a first draft. The series offers all of this, and the result undoubtedly helps authors to produce the best possible results. Books make statements, about research, about ideas and about key social and environmental questions that are difficult to articulate in journal papers. I highly recommend both the series and the process devised by the editorial board as a means to publish geographical research.'

‘The RGS-IBG book series has become one of the foremost publications for high quality, innovative and accessible geography monographs that reach beyond the discipline. I was attracted to the series because of this reputation, but also because of the excellent reviews shared by colleagues as previous authors. I wanted to work with a publisher that would put the manuscript through its paces and the academic editor and review process at RGS-IBG guaranteed that. From submission of the initial proposal through to their post publication engagement with the book, the editorial team have been fantastic. The quality of the final publication has been greatly enhanced by the constructive discussion and care taken by the editorial team and referees, and the publication process was made incredibly smooth thanks to responsive and clear communication at every stage by Wiley Blackwell. I am very proud of the book, and have already recommended the RGS-IBG book series to future authors.'
