ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies

ACME is an international journal for critical analyses of the social, the spatial, and the political.

Our underlying purpose is to make critical work accessible for free. We set no subscription fee, we do not publish for profit, and no ACME Editors receive any payment for their labour. We note this not in self-righteousness, but as a way to foreground the practice of collective work and mutual aid.

The journal's purpose is to provide a forum for the publication of critical work about space and place in the social sciences — including anarchist, anti-racist, environmentalist, decolonial, feminist, Marxist, non-representational, postcolonial, poststructuralist, queer, situationist, and socialist perspectives. Analyses that are critical are understood to be part of the praxis of social and political change aimed at challenging, dismantling, and transforming prevalent relations, systems, and structures of exploitation, oppression, imperialism, national aggression, environmental destruction, and neoliberalism.

ACME is intended to be international in scope and is accessed by people from more than 185 countries around the globe. The editors especially encourage submissions from academic and non-academic sources outside Anglo-America. Articles may be submitted in English, French, Italian, German, or Spanish. Articles written in other languages may be accepted for review after consultation with the editors. The editors also encourage submission of alternative formats. We publish using Creative Commons licenses.

Articles accepted in ACME must meet the highest standards of scholarly peer review. Research articles are peer reviewed by three external referees, while interventions and commentaries are peer reviewed by two external referees. The journal has been publishing via the ‘platinum’ open-access model since 2002 and now plays a very important role in the publication of interdisciplinary scholarly work.

ACME EDITORIAL STATEMENT REGARDING IMPACT FACTOR:

Based on IP data, ACME is accessed by more than 600,000 ‘unique' readers per year. The Editorial Collective has thus been approached a number of times to be included in journal impact factor rankings. Each request for inclusion in these measures has been refused on political grounds. ACME opposes entering into a neoliberal system of audit replete with manipulated calculations and spurious metrics that include impact factors and journal rankings that are neither accurate, nor credible.
