    The IMCoS Journal is a 64-page quarterly publication. It includes a wide range articles on the history of cartography addressing Western, Asian and Arabic mapping practices; its scope is designed to interest our worldwide membership. The journal also covers the activities of the Society, wherever they take place in the world, news from the mapping community around the world, book reviews and letters to the editor. Back issues of all the journals are available to read online for members.
