摘要:

以中国的《地理学报》中、英文版和美国的AAAG (Annals of the Association of American Geographers, 美国地理学家协会会刊)、英国的TIBG (Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers,英国皇家地理学会会刊) 作为中西方主流地理期刊的代表案例,以各刊网站的资料和文献作为数据源,对比各刊的办刊背景、发展历史,重点从办刊宗旨、报道内容、国际化程度、办刊特色、用稿要求等几个方面来对比分析中西方主流地理期刊的办刊实践,结果显示:1) 办刊宗旨上,AAAG和TIBG将重点落实在学科建设服务上,明确宣称其国际权威的高端定位,强调刊文对学科知识性的贡献,即对创新性有特别具体和明确的要求;《地理学报》中、英文版除了服务于学科建设外,明确提出为国民经济建设服务的宗旨。2) 学科内容上,AAAG创刊前20年偏重自然地理,之后人文地理刊文一直处于优势地位;环境科学和方法研究近年来受到重视,基础研究不断深入;《地理学报》自然和人文地理的刊文总体上趋于合理和平衡,其英文版偏重自然地理学、自然与人文相结合的综合性研究。3) 国际化程度方面,被研究期刊的作者群均以本国作者为主,国际作者群体以来自美国、英国、加拿大等国家的作者占优势,其中,AAAG作者的国际化程度最高。4) 办刊特色方面,《地理学报》中、英文版注重实证研究类刊文;AAAG主要体现在其专刊 (special issue) 及主席演讲等方面,TIBG主要体现在虚拟期刊 (virtual issue) 及对刊文质量的贡献要求等方面。

Abstract:

Taking Acta Geographica Sinica (AGS), Journal of Geographical Sciences (JGS), Annals of the Association of American Geographers (AAAG) and Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers (TIBG) as typical representatives of mainstream journals in China and western countries, according to the information from the respective official websites and documents, and with the background and development history of each journal, the author of this paper makes a comparative analysis on the aims of the journals, report content, internationalization degree, characteristics and their requirement for the articles. The results show that: 1) In terms of the arms of publication, AAAG and TIBG focus on their discipline construction, express definitely their high orientation of international authority, and emphasize contribution of publication to the discipline knowledge, i.e. they have specific and definite requirements for innovativeness, while AGS and JGS, in addition to serving the discipline construction, put forward their objective to serve national economic construction, and emphasize the high level and originality of publication. 2) On the report content, AAAG laid stress on physical geography for its publication in the first two decades, but human geography has been in a dominant position in the following period; attention is also paid to environment science and geographical methodology in recent years; and basic theory study for geography is deepening, but the publication tendency of weakening physical geography becomes a problem faced by the comprehensive geography journals. For the publication of AGS, the ratio of physical geography and human geography is reasonably balanced. JGS pays attention to physical geography and comprehensive research involving physical and human geography. Both of them lay stress on empirical research articles. 3) As for the degree of internationalization, the authors of all selected journals are mainly from their own country, the international authors mostly come from USA, UK, and Canada. The internationalization degree of authors of AAAG is the highest, and the internationalization degree of editors and editorial boards of those journals is similar to that of the authors, with a slight difference, the proportion of international editorial members in TIBG is the highest, but the number of international editorial members of AAAG is the biggest. As international mainstream journals, they are all included by the most important international retrieval systems. 4) As for journal characteristics, AGS and JGS pay more attention to empirical research; AAAG mainly features in the special issues and the presidential speech, and TIBG is mainly embodied in virtual issues and articles' contribution requirements.
