Special Issue in Geographies: From Geoheritage to Geotourism–New Advances and Emerging Challenges (Volume II)
I am pleased to invite you to consider submitting your works for a new state-of-the-art collection of papers, outlining the advances geoheritage research has achieved since being established and making its place among other geosciences. This volume calls for papers that are able to highlight the route various disciplines within geoheritage research have taken in the past two decades, leading to the currently flourishing and fast-developing science that has fed such subdisciplines as geoconservation, geoeducation and geotourism, among many others. We would like to make this Special Issue a landmark work, that provides a holistic overview of the evolution of the geoheritage science and how it has helped to foster such practical research fields as geotourism, also addressing how all these achievements can serve to embed the geosciences more deeply in the network of sciences and the actions of society at a time when global and planetary change is clearly visible within the human life span. We are particularly interested in holistic review-style works that not only provide a critical overview of the evolution of the science field in question, but also offer solutions towards the future. The volume will also take specific case studies if they provide a clear overview as to how and why that specific region, area or subject serves to foster a more holistic approach to geoheritage, geoconservation or geotourism. Interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary works are especially welcome in this volume, in which the boundaries between the geosciences and other science fields are crossed, explored or narrowed, in order to define geoheritage research in its broadest sense. High-quality review papers can be published in this issue without publication fees.
