From a recent circular email via the RGS-IBG, originating from the Area editorial board:
Following a successful discussion forum at the RGS-IBG conference in the summer, we are launching a new, regular feature of Area: ‘Ethics in/of Geographical Research’. We welcome contributions from across the discipline (and beyond), which reflect on ethics in the widest sense. It is our intent that we publish at least one piece in this feature per issue. We are open to submissions of different kinds – from commentaries and symposia to full articles and proposals for special sections.
We encourage prospective authors to get in touch with any of the Editors to discuss ideas for potential contributions.

We also discuss our aspirations for this new feature in more detail in the Editorial of the latest issue of Area, hot off the press and publishedon Tuesday: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/area.12310/full
