Resources provided by Routes are all freely available on the website and there are absolutely no charges to submit, publish or access Routes articles.
Sixth form and undergraduate students can submit their work to Routes and the following types of submission are accepted:
- Essays (independently written or part of class assignments).
- Fieldwork/ NEA (including individual sections such as methods or literature review.
- Book reviews.
- Academic posters.
- Commentaries or perspective pieces.

Detailed submission guidelines can be found on the Routes website. We publish three issues per year published in September, January and April and students can submit their work at any time.
When students publish their work in Routes, it is a mark of distinction and it allows students to demonstrate their enthusiasm, academic excellence and explore their own views on matters of concern. It also shows our students that their ideas really matter and can make a difference to how we approach particular geographical issues.
We firmly believe firmly that submitting work to Routes should be as much about the process of submission as it is about the end result of publication. Each student can expect to receive constructive feedback from two expert peer reviewers to improve their work before it is published.
