Latest News and Upcoming Events
We hope you have been having a productive summer. Before the next academic year kicks off, we will be working on the next issue of GeoNews (Issue 60). For this issue we would really like to highlight all the news from our members for the year to date, and also include any upcoming research projects / faculty news / courses / fieldtrips / seminars or anything else Geographically themed!
We would also encourage session chairs from CIG2015 to submit short reports from their sessions so we can highlight what an excellent event this years conference was. Photographs taken during CIG would also be most welcome.
You can submit content directly on the GSI website in a word document(http://www.geographicalsocietyireland.ie/geo-news.html) or alternatively you can e-mail content to the editor (paul.alexander(at)nuim.ie) with the subject line GeoNews 60 before Friday the 18th of September
We also encourage students to consider submitting short research pieces as well, we are always keen to highlight up and coming geographical research.
Changes to Irish Geography
Volume 47(1) of Irish Geography will be the last time we will produce a hard-copy version of the journal. As you will be aware, we have moved to an on-line publishing model and in future all issues will be available via our website www.irishgeography.ie.
The GSI committee thank you for your patience while making this transition which will give us considerable freedom to ensure the best path for the journal. We would ask all members to register on www.irishgeography.ie. This will allow you to browse current and past issues of IG - this is also the pathway for submissions to the journal.
