The California Geographer is the refereed annual publication of the California Geographical Society (CGS). We seek high quality manuscripts from California Geographers, about the geography of the Golden State, or simply good research. Exemplary student contributions from student members are encouraged.
Because the CG is now digital, it is easily searched via both EBSCO and Google Scholar. Even an ordinary "Google Search" is likely to turn up papers published in the California Geographer. Peer-reviewed, well-respected and without a great deal of the bureaucratic hassles common with other journals, the California Geographer is a great place to publish your research.
