The Professional Geographer

The Professional Geographer CoverThe Professional Geographer, initially a publication of the American Society of Professional Geographers, became a journal of the Association of American Geographers in 1949. It publishes short articles on academic or applied geography, emphasizing empirical studies and methodologies, as well as book reviews. These features may range in content and approach from rigorously analytic to broadly philosophical or prescriptive. The journal provides a forum for new ideas and alternative viewpoints.
