About

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.

Do you want to further geographical knowledge and understanding through education?

The FSG is a registered charity and it receives no direct financial government support. We work hard in pursuit of our charitable mission, to further geographical knowledge and understanding through education, but we could always do with some extra help. A donation to the FSG will help us to support teachers of geography in the classroom as well as charitable activities. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

The Florida Geographer

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. Please note that all images will be printed in black and white. Please include the figure (table) number and title, which should be centered at the top of each figure (table) and the source, which should be left flush below the figure (table). Figure (table) numbers and titles should not be in all caps. Headings, paragraphs, and references should be consistent. See the latest edition of The Florida Geographer for more information. In-text citations should be used; footnotes will not be accepted. Endnotes should only be used sparingly. E-mail submissions are preferred if the file size of the submission permits, however, CD submissions by regular mail are also accepted by the Editor. Once papers are accepted, authors will work directly with the Production Editor to make sure the paper and graphics are in an acceptable format for publication.
