We are continuously developing partnerships with other scientific journals, representatives of well-known universities worldwide, through which our journal (printed version) is included in their libraries. Currently, the exchange partnerships are represented by the journal of Investigaciones Geograficas edited in Spanish by the University of Alicante, the Indian Journal of Landscape Systems and Ecological Studies edited in English by the Institute of Landscape, Ecology & Ekistics, Calcutta, India and Urbani izziv (“Urban Challenge”) edited in English by the Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia, Ljubljana, SLOVENIA.
