The Florida Society of Geographers was chartered in 1964 as a non-profit organization for the purpose of furthering professionalism in geography through application of geographic techniques in all areas of education, government, and business. The Society supports these objectives by promoting acquaintance and discussion among its members and with scholars and practitioners in related fields by stimulating research and field investigation, by encouraging publication of scholarly studies, and by performing services to aid the advancement of its members and the field of geography in Florida.

The Florida Geography

The Florida Geographer is the official publication of the Florida Society of Geographers and is distributed free to members of the society. The Editor encourages topics on all aspects of physical, human and applied geography. There is a preference for topics with a focus set in Florida, but national and international research by geographers based in Florida is also considered. Since 1996 the Florida Geographic Alliance, whose mission is to support geographical education in grades K through 12, has paid for a portion of the publication and distribution costs of The Florida Geographer. All members of the Alliance receive the Journal, and articles related to geographical education are also encouraged.

Manuscripts are solicited on an on-going basis. Currently, The Florida Geographer, is published once per year, usually in the late Fall. Deadline for submissions is approximately September 30 each year. Manuscripts should be submitted directly to the Editor. Electronic submissions are strongly encouraged in WORD or rich text format (.rtf). Authors should submit all tables and figures electronically either embedded within the document, in JPEG, or in gif format; tables may also be submitted in Excel format.
