A Look Ahead

Article excerpt

Geography as a dynamic discipline has never enjoyed a higher status than it does today. This discipline has experienced unprecedented conceptual, technical, and philosophical advances in recent years. Another factor that has contributed to this heightened status is the increasing diversity of research, both basic and applied, that geographers are engaging in. Geographers are not only collaborating more among themselves, they are also actively working with scholars in many other disciplines.

We encourage submissions that contain either macroscale or microscale analyses, provided the latter have broader implications. We hope that these attempts will further expand the broad community of readers this journal has traditionally enjoyed. As in the past, we intend to publish landmark papers on its pages. We realize that physical geography and several subfields of human geography have been underrepresented in the journal, and we hope to address this imbalance during our tenure. In this effort, we need cooperation from reviewers, authors, and others in securing exceptional manuscripts, in reducing turnaround time for manuscripts that are accepted for publication, and in enhancing the breadth of material that is published.

Like my immediate predecessor, I assume responsibility as editor of the Geographical Review with a sense of indebtedness to it and to the American Geographical Society. …
