This virtual special issue marks International Women’s Day 2022 by drawing together fifteen papers published in Spatial Economic Analysis over the past decade by female authors and co-authors.
It highlights the wide range of novel research by female authors and all-female research teams, and the growth of female-authored studies over time, as well as the geographical and career-stage diversity of female authors within the field.
The papers include several agenda-setting overviews of the spatial analysis literature, studies introducing novel applications of econometric and spatial analysis techniques, and spatial modelling applied to policy-relevant research topics.
