The Journal of Latin American Geography builds upon the tradition of the CLAG Yearbook, which published a selection of peer-reviewed papers by distinguished geographers and other scholars from 1985 until 2002. The editorial team works with a multi-disciplinary, international editorial board to promote the publication of original, high quality, and refereed manuscripts that represent the broad spectrum of geographic perspectives on and from Latin America. We are committed to publishing articles in English, Spanish, and Portuguese with the intention of bringing the region's best scholarship to the broadest possible audience.
