FENNIA publishes papers of high scholarly merit in three categories: research papers, review articles and reflections. Research papers are original full-length articles that make a significant contribution to geographic and related research. Shorter review articles introduce empirical, theoretical or methodological insights from ongoing research. Reflections section includes commentaries, debates, discussion pieces, interventions, and other argumentative short texts related to contemporary issues. With these three publication formats, the journal seeks to take forward geographical research and discussion in a critical and responsible spirit. In addition to individual contributions, it welcomes proposals for special issues and sections.
