Southeastern Geographer given an Impact Factor!

Dear Friends of Southeastern Geographer,

It is with great pleasure to announce that beginning fall 2023, Southeastern Geographer will receive an impact factor. Since its inception in 1961, the flagship journal of the Southeastern Division of the American Association of Geographers (SEDAAG) has published research on a wide variety of topics relating to the American South. Contributing authors have represented researchers from all career stages ranging from emerging to senior scholars. We are hopeful that with the inclusion of an impact factor, more scholars will consider Southeastern Geographer as a potential publication outlet.

This milestone for Southeastern Geographer reflects a collective effort including the contributions of the past and present editorial teams, long-term support from SEDAAG, scholarly contributions from authors, and thoughtful feedback from reviewers.  Finally, the University of North Carolina Press has been an advocate of Southeastern Geographer and was an influential actor in the decision to receive an impact factor.

We look forward to receiving your scholarly work in the upcoming year as the journal continues to publish interesting and timely articles about the geography of the American South.

Kind Regards,


Selima Sultana and Paul Knapp
