ACME is an on-line international journal for critical analyses of the social, the spatial and the political.

The journal has been publishing open-access (using the creative commons license) for a decade and it now plays a very important role in the publication of scholarly work in human geography.  The journal website is accessed more than 200,000 times per year, and its scholarly articles are downloaded more than 150,000 times each year.

The journal's purpose is to provide a forum for the publication of critical work about space in the social sciences — including anarchist, anti-racist, environmentalist, feminist, Marxist, non-representational, postcolonial, poststructuralist, queer, situationist and socialist perspectives. Analyses that are critical are understood to be part of the praxis of social and political change aimed at challenging, dismantling, and transforming prevalent relations, systems, and structures of exploitation, oppression, imperialism, neoliberalism, national aggression, and environmental destruction.

ACME is intended to be international in scope. The journal is accessed by people from more than 180 countries around the globe.  The editors especially encourage submissions from academic and non-academic sources outside Anglo-America. Articles may be submitted and published in English, French, Italian, German or Spanish. Articles written in other languages may be accepted for review after consultation with the editors. The editors also encourage submission of alternative presentation formats.

Articles accepted for publication in ACME must meet the highest standards of scholarly peer review.
