Our peer-reviewed journal, Papers in Applied Geography, is the conference’s official publication covering research and commentary across all areas of applied geography. Our outreach team produces relevant content such as blogs and podcasts and maintains a website dedicated to the sharing of information for the community including information on events, articles, podcasts, blogs and other medium used to share ideas and encourage application across various disciplines.
