The Journal of Latin American Geography (JLAG) will publish original geographical and interdisciplinary research on Latin America and the Caribbean. The University of Texas Press distributes the three issues of the Journal each year, normally in March, June and October. The Journal is published by the Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers (CLAG), established in 1970 to foster geographic education and research on Latin America through conferences and publications. The Journal of Latin American Geography will continue and expand the tradition of the annual CLAG Yearbook which has published a selection of papers by geographers and other scholars for more than 20 years. The editors work with an international editorial board to promote the publication of original, high quality, and anonymously refereed manuscripts that represent the broad spectrum of geographic perspectives on and from the region. Papers are accepted in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French.
