Dissertation of Cultural Landscape Commission is a journal published by the Cultural Landscape Commission of the Polish Geographical Society since 2002. According to the new classification of scientific disciplines (Journal of Laws of the Republic of Poland 2018, item 1818), the content of articles published in the Journal represents primarily socio-economic geography and spatial management, earth and environmental sciences as well as architecture and urban planning. Dissertation of Cultural Landscape Commission is an interdisciplinary journal due to the multipronged subject of research – cultural landscape. The journal is addressed primarily to geographers, landscape ecologists and landscape architects. The spatial approach to the analysed phenomena and processes are the basic distinction and sine qua non for published texts. The authors of the articles accept the definition of landscape according to the European Landscape Convention – an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors. Thus, landscape is an area (typologically diverse), created as a result of natural and cultural factors, which is characterized by a specific structure, regional individuality and a specific physiognomy.
The texts published in the journal should refer to the following features characterizing the landscape as:
a piece of space that can be presented on the map or in the form of a model (2D and 3D);
terrain physiognomy, which can be presented in a drawing, photo or in the form of 3D visualization;
a dynamic system, with a method of functioning dependent on a set of its components, links between them and the type of dominant processes;
an evolutionary system subjected to transformation and metamorphosis with a legible and repetitive history, based on the analysis of cultural stratifications (the so-called stratigraphy and landscape biography) as well as the analysis of time-varying landscape-forming factors (including geological and geomorphological determinants, climatic conditions) -hydrochloric, botanical-soil, historical-cultural, including religious, socio-economic, political, administrative-legal, biopsychic and demographic, technological, etc.)
The texts published here should refer to the landscape as a subject of research in the following aspects:
landscape as a set of physical objects (aggregation of abiotic, biotic and anthropogenic subsystems), with a specific content (ie physical composition, chemical biological) and form (sculpture and texture, and in the case of anthropogenic elements - also with a specific composition);
landscape as a system of related processes (ecological, geomorphological, hydrological, social, economic, and others) that integrate physical objects;
landscape as a set of stimuli, affecting the different senses of the recipient, in particular a set of views and panoramas with specific aesthetic values;
landscape as a collection of natural, social, economic, material, spiritual, historical, physiognomic, aesthetic, symbolic and other values (potentials);
a system that provides real and potential services (benefits) for different groups of users.
The editors guarantee a relatively fast process of publication of the article (the waiting time for the publication of a manuscript is 2-4 months)
