South Australian Geographical Journal

The most recent Volumes of the South Australian Geographical Journal 114 (2018) and 115 (2019) are now available via our online publisher – Exeley.  The first online volume includes an editorial ‘Geography Still Matters’ which includes guidelines for submission of articles.

The Society’s Journal is produced about once a year. It carries refereed research papers and other articles relating to the geography of South Australia and its immediate vicinity. In 1987 the Proceedings became the South Australian Geographic Journal.  In 2018 the journal was published online for the first time.  A few previous issues are available online.

The journal remains committed to its goals which are to;

(i) contribute theoretical, conceptual and/or empirical interventions to the advancement of both geography and ideas pertaining to ‘public relevance’,

(ii) to stimulate and shape public and policy-orientated agendas across human and physical geography, and

(iii) evaluate how and why geographical knowledge is used to influence and underpin local and national policies.

In particular the online version now enables us to communicate ‘cutting-edge’ research in an accessible manner. In a world that is beset by wicked problems on an hitherto unprecedented scale, the explorations and types of interdisciplinary research and insights that only a discipline like geography can offer, reminds us that geography, now more than ever, matters.
