We are delighted to announce the appointment of five new Editors for two of the Society’s academic journals and the RGS-IBG book series, alongside the appointment of a new Managing Editor for the Society’s academic publications.
Professor Rosie Cox from Birkbeck, University of London, Professor Sarah Davies from Aberystwyth University, and Professor David Demeritt from King’s College London, have joined Professors Gail Davies, from the University of Exeter, and Anson Mackay, from University College London as Co-Editors of Geo: Geography and Environment, the Society’s online only, fully open-access journal.
Dr Alan Latham from University College London, has been appointed as Co-Editor of Area. He will join Professor Hilary Geoghegan from the University of Reading and Dr Julian Leyland from the University of Southampton, when Professor Peter Kraftl from the University of Birmingham completes his term of office at the end of 2019.
Dr Ruth Craggs from Kings College London takes over as Editor of the RGS-IBG book series in January 2020, when Dr David Featherstone from the University of Glasgow completes his term of office.
Finally, Dr Phil Emmerson has been appointed as Managing Editor of the Society’s academic publications, taking over from Dr Fiona Nash who served five years in the role.
The Society extends thanks and appreciation to all of the outgoing Editors for their intellectual direction and contributions to our scholarly publications.
Our academic journals and books are internationally recognised and provide a supportive outlet for the dissemination of high quality research across the breadth of geography. We are looking forward to working with each of the new editorial teams to help them realise their goals and continue to diversify the range of voices and areas of the discipline that are represented in the journals and books.
