Mobilities Journal


journal coverMobilities examines the large-scale movements of people, objects, capital, and information across the world, as well as more local processes of daily transportation, movement through public and private space and the travel of material objects in everyday life. New transportation and digital infrastructures and novel social and cultural practices pose important challenges for coordinating and governing mobilities and for mobility rights and questions of ‘access’. These ‘mobility’ issues have generated new research methods and theories.

Mobilities publishes original, theoretically-informed research which is international in scope. The journal seeks to address major topical issues and to foster scholarly debate around the ‘mobility’ turn..
Papers in the following areas would be considered for publication in Mobilities:

  • Mobile spatiality and temporality
  • Sustainable and alternative mobilities
  • Mobile rights and risks
  • New social networks and mobile media
  • Immobilities and social exclusions
  • Tourism and travel mobilities
  • Migration and diasporas framed in terms of wider mobilities theory
  • Transportation and digital technologies
  • Transitions in complex systems
  • Climate change and transportation energy

Papers should normally be between 8000-11,000 words in total. All submissions undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by up to three referees. There are 5 issues a year including special issues. The decisions of the editors are final.
