Focus and Scope

The Florida Geographer is the official publication of the Florida Society of Geographers. The journal will make the transition in 2011 from a hard copy to open-access on line publication. 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 as well as articles focused on geographic education.

Manuscripts are solicited on an on-going basis. Currently, The Florida Geographer, is published once per year, usually late in the Fall semester. Deadline for submissions is approximately August 15. Manuscripts should be submitted directly to the Editor. Electronic submissions are required 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 in a consistent format. The references section should conform to MLA style. 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, bibliography and graphics are in an acceptable format for publication.
