Newly Renamed ‘Annals’ Section “Physical Geography and Environmental Sciences”
The Annals of the American Association of Geographers has a newly renamed “Physical Geography and Environmental Sciences” section. It’s our hope that this section of the journal will identify with physical geographers, in addition to being open in a multidisciplinary sense to the Environmental Sciences. By explicitly stating “Physical Geography” in the section name, we’d like to encourage more physical geographers to submit their best work to the Annals. The AAG was founded in part by physical geographers, so the new section name is also a way of recognizing and honoring the long tradition of physical geography within the broader scope of our wide-ranging modern field of Geography.
