The Acta Geographica Debrecina Landscape & Environment (L&E) publishes both research and application oriented papers in the area of  landscape evaluation; landscape metrics; land use changes; investigation of environmental elements; climatology; meteorology; human impacts, tourism and environment, GIS. The journal is a diamond open access journal, publishing and downloading articles are both free of charge. All of our articles and Issues are available in the following repositories: University of Debrecen Electronic Archive

The Journal publishes the received and reviewed articles on its website, thus enabling members to have immediate access to the papers. Reactions to articles previously published in L&E should be sent to the Editor.

This journal operates a single blind review process. All contributions will be initially assessed by the editor for suitability for the journal. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles. The Editor's decision is final. 

Authors must ensure that the submitted manuscript is their original work (data including graphs, figures, tables, and illustrations), which has not been published previously. Authors must ensure also that the submitted manuscript has not been considered for publication elsewhere. Authors are aware that if the content detailed above has been published elsewhere, our Journal cannot accept it. Authors of the Journal are requested to sign the Authorʹs declaration document. The filled and signed form should be uploaded with the submitted article on the website of the Journal.

To avoid plagiarism, after the submission, the manuscripts will be checked by an international plagiarism search software programme. If the similarity index is too high the manuscript will be immediately rejected. After the acceptance usually 3 months passes until the Journal publishes the scientific material.
