AGER: Journal of Depopulation and Rural Development Studies is a social science journal that deals with rural and territorial development, including depopulation processes. Twice every year, the journal publishes articles coming from different disciplines (economics, geography, sociology, anthropology, history). The journal is strongly committed to the promotion of interdisciplinarity and of research that combines empirical results with theoretical perspectives.

Every article submitted to AGER is assessed by the journal’s editorial board in the first place. If this assessment is positive, the submission goes through a double-blind, peer-review process by experts who are not members of the editorial board.

AGER follows an open access policy according to which all of its contents are freely available from this website.
