Thirty years of academic publishing in regional studies: A content analysis of MCRSA's scholarly output

For thirty years, the Mid-continent Regional Science Association has published high-quality scholarly papers on topics of relevance to regional studies. First as Regional Science Perspectives and then as the Journal of Regional Analysis and Policy, contributors to the Journal, have furthered our understanding of the economic, geographic and political aspects of regional growth and change. In this paper, we compile, analyze, and summarize the Journal’s content over the past thirty years. As co-editors, we provide our perspectives of where we currently are and, to some extent, where we are going. But since the quality of a scholarly journal reflects the excellence of its contributors, it truly reflects the abilities of regional scientists to craft their own visions of regional studies.
