Scholarly Societies Project


This is one of a set of subject pages in the Scholarly Societies Project, which facilitates access to websites of scholarly societies across the world. A set of guidelines is used in determining whether to include resources.

Links to websites of scholarly societies in Geography are given below. The URL-Stability Index for this collection of Geography sites is 78.0/84 = 92.9%. The URL-stability index for each site below is given graphically in the left-hand column as the URL-stability rank for that site.

See also: the Water Science, Hydrology & Oceanology and Area Studies & Time-Period Studies categories.
