The Living Cybercartographic Atlas of Indigenous Perspectives and Knowledge is an online multimedia entity begun by a group from Carleton University. It follows the green model of OA in that it serves as a self-archiving repository, allowing community members to input their own unique knowledge. The contributions are then built into the atlas as a variety of interactive multimedia stories. The atlas is intended as an educational and knowledge-sharing tool.

ISSN 1492-9732

ACME is “an on-line international journal for critical and radical analyses of the social, the spatial and the political. The journal’s purpose is to provide a forum for the publication of critical and radical work about space in the social sciences – including anarchist, anti-racist, environmentalist, feminist, marxist, postcolonial, poststructuralist, queer, situationist and socialist perspectives.”

Sample article: Crampton, Jeremy W. & Krygier, John. (2006). An introduction to critical cartography. ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies, 4 (1), 11-33.

This journal is a departure from most of the material you will find access to on this site, but it may be of interest to those researching human geography and the intersection between theoretical social critique and geography.
