Researchers are often pushed to publish their work in high impact journals, but we must not forget that regional journals are as important, despite their low profiles. Sometimes, research findings that may initially seem internationally insignificant could revolutionise future theoretical and experimental developments around the globe. Equally, basic regional science out of scope for high profile journals is important to local communities and so it needs a home. Our journal prides itself on publishing a range of types of research communication and on rigorous standards of peer-review. We have a long history and are cited internationally – recognition which we want to continue for many decades to come.
