Publications of the California Geographical Society
Part of the mission of the California Geography Society is to provide forums for the exchange of scholarly ideas and opinions, pedagogical practices and concerns as well as information about the activities about the organization.
To that end, the CGS publishes the scholarly journal, The California Geographer, a tri-annual bulletin, hosts a on-line discussion and news forum, the CGS listserve and plans other interactive forums for the exchange of ideas.
The California Geographer
first edition of The California Geographer was published in 1960 as “a means
of publishing more material on California, on the work of California
geographers, or perhaps as an outlet for work which was not
finding space in the four national professional geography journals
of the time”. Today it serves much the same purpose, and we invite members and non-members alike to consider submitting their high quality research, opinions and reviews to the California Geographer.

The Bulletin of the California Geographical Society
The bulletin was published initially as a newsletter beginning in 1946, but in 1953 it became the bulletin and it included manuscripts in addition to news about the organization's meetings and activities. Today, manuscripts are the domain of our journal, The California Geographer, but the bulletin lives on, reporting and announcing the activities of the CGS, especially the plans for and reports about the annual conference; but the bulletin also welcomes news of note regarding CGS members
