||The Journal of Latin American Geography is published by the Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers (CLAG) and distributed by the University of Texas Press. A specialized group of geographers founded in 1970, CLAG was organized to develop geographic investigation in and on Latin America. As well as the Journal of Latin American Geography, CLAG also publishes a Newsletter and maintains an active listserv. It invites social scientists of all disciplines related to CLAG subjects to participate in its conferences, held every 18 months in the Americas, and in its publications. 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 editor 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.
