    Western Geography

    Western Geography is the official journal of the Western Division of the Canadian Association of Geographers. The objective of the journal is to publish original scholarly work including research notes on geographical themes or topics that emphasize western Canada and adjacent areas, or that are written by geographers from this region. The editor and editorial board invite manuscripts of a methodological, empirical, theoretical, or philosophical nature that fall within this objective.
    As with the first volume of Western Geography under the editorship of Michael Edgell, and continued by Jim Windor, Neil Hanlon and Craig Coburn, submissions from students are encouraged.
    Papers presented at the WDCAG conferences are also encouraged.

    Authors intending to submit manuscripts are encouraged to utilise the submission template.
