Space and Culture brings together dynamic, critical interdisciplinary theory and research on social spaces and spatializations, eveyday rhythms and cultural topologies at the interface of urban geography, sociology, cultural studies, studies of time-space, architectural theory, ethnography, media and urban studies, environmental studies. Space and Culture's unique focus is on social spaces, such as retail, laboratory, leisure spaces, suburbia, virtual spaces, diasporic spaces or migrancy, or the home and everyday life.

In every issue, Space and Culture explores and critiques everyday life in contemporary cities, environment, and new media. The Tables of Contents of recent issues illustrate some of our changing discussions.

Space and Culture features peer-reviewed articles on novel topics that are not written about anywhere else, review articles on important topics. Reviews, debates about articles, emerging areas, and the daily life of the journal are blogged at

    Special Issue Proposal Guidelines

    Space and Culture is currently not accepting new manuscripts at the time. Thank you for considering Space and Culture and we hope you will consider submitting to the journal in the future.

    Manuscript Submission Guidelines

    Manuscripts should be as concise as possible, yet sufficiently detailed to permit adequate critical review. Authors should follow the style of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (Sixth Edition, 2010). Please note that manuscripts that do not follow APA style and/or do not meet the following format requirements will not be reviewed. The maximum length should be around 7000 words and should not be simultaneously submitted to another journal. Space and Culture uses double-blind reviewing. All submissions are pre-refereed by the editors. Only original manuscripts which engage with the journal’s core concerns of social spatialisation are sent for outside review.

    Please organize your manuscript so that the elements are gathered in this order: abstract, text, tables, figures, notes, and references. You may also refer to this Space & Culture Submission Checklist.


    The second page should contain an abstract of no more than 150 words and five to seven keywords to facilitate electronic access. The title of the paper will be repeated on page 2.


    • Each table should be fully titled, typed on a separate page, and placed at the end of the paper.
    • Tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals.
    • Footnotes to tables should be identified with superscript lowercase letters and placed at the bottom of the table.
    • All tables should be referred to in the text.
    • Tables should be typed and single-spaced.


    • All figures should include full attribution information as well as captions with titles, dates & copyright information.
    • Copyright is not needed at the time of submission but authors will be responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce images and for any copyright fees.
    • Digital copies of figures should be sent on first submission of a manuscript in a widely accessible format such as Jpeg; original camera-ready and electronic figures will be requested when a manuscript is accepted for publication.


    Notes should appear on a separate page at the end of the article. Notes should be numbered consecutively and each endnote should be referred to in text with a corresponding superscript number.


    You can submit your manuscript electronically at

    The first page of the paper should be anonymized and contain only the article title and the word count that includes text, notes, and references.

    As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process, SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from one another, even those who share the same name. Through integration in key research workflows, such as manuscript and grant submission, ORCID supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized. 

    The collection of ORCID IDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID ID you will be asked to associate it to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It only takes a few seconds: Click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID ID will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID ID is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.

    If you do not already have an ORCID ID please follow this link to create one or visit our ORCID homepage to learn more.


    Space and Culture may accept submissions of papers that have been posted on pre-print servers; please alert the Editorial Office when submitting and include the DOI for the preprint in the designated field in the manuscript submission system. Authors should not post an updated version of their paper on the preprint server while it is being peer reviewed for possible publication in the journal. If the article is accepted for publication, the author may re-use their work according to the journal's author archiving policy.

    If your paper is accepted, you must include a link on your preprint to the final version of your paper.

    Visit the SAGE Journals and Preprints page for more details about preprints.
