[Purposes] Taking the practice of Tropical Geography in recent years as a case, this paper aims to discuss the development strategies leading to high-quality scientific journals, which can provide reference for the practical operation of other scientific journals in this field. [Methods] Bearing the consciousness of high-quality in the operation of scientific journals, we analyzed the external opportunities and threats faced by Tropical Geography and its advantages and weaknesses based on SWOT model. [Finding] Catching the hotspots to organize special issues, transforming the regional restrictions into regional characteristics, and setting a column on academic discussion are effective implementation strategies for high-quality and characterization. The strategies have played a practical and effective role in improving the core competitiveness of Tropical Geography. At the same time, a new approach to ensure high-quality publishing of the special issues has been explored: selecting good topics→issuing a call for papers or invitations→submitting the titles→setting up mid-term seminars or roundtable forums on the special issue→publishing special issues→disseminating the special issues effectively. [Conclusions] The journals should analyze their own development opportunities accurately, make full use of their existing advantages, transform their disadvantages effectively, and develop scientific and feasible strategies for high-qualities. It is an effective way to enhance journals' competitiveness.
