THE 50th ANNIVERSARY OF AUC GEOGRAPHICA
In 2015 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our journal. The journal is published by Karolinum Press which is the official publisher of Charles University in Prague. The first issue was published in 1966 and the first papers were gathered from a Czech-Polish Geographical Seminar held at Charles University in Prague between April 26 and 30, 1966. The first issue was written in the native languages (Czech and Polish), while the next issue also contained papers in English and German (followed also by papers in Spanish and French). We began publishing fully in foreign languages in 1990 and step by step English prevailed, even if we published some papers in other world languages from time to time (e.g. French, Spanish). The first editorial board was represented by leading national geographers – all of them became professors and leaders in their geographical specializations in the subsequent years. The character of the editorial board became international in 2007 and substantially so in 2009; nevertheless this is a continuous process to also reflect the progress in our geographical disciplines.
