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


The journal has been publishing via the ‘platinum’ open-access model since 2002 and it now plays a very important role in the publication of scholarly work in human geography.  There are no charges for readers nor are there publication fees for authors, and ACME is published using the creative commons license.  The journal website is accessed more than 250,000 times per year, and its scholarly articles are downloaded more than 507,000 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-colonial, 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.  Research articles are peer reviewed by three external referees.  Intervention articles and commentaries are peer reviewed by two external referees.
