Applied Spatial Analysis and Policy draws on spatial analysis for the assembly and interpretation of evidence, addressing such issues as crime and deprivation, immigration and demographic restructuring, retail activity and employment change, resource management and environmental improvement.

The journal draws on applied research from such sources as transport, policing, education, health, environment and leisure to offer comparative policy analysis between domains and locations, and to stimulate ideas on the application of spatial analysis methods across varied policy contexts.

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
