New RGS-IBG Population Geography website launched

UCL-designed 'blog post' format easier to use than conventional sites

New RGS-IBG Population Geography website launched

The Population Geography Research Group (PGRG) of the Royal Geographical Society (with Institute of British Geographers), has launched a new website - designed and hosted by UCL, at


The site features the main activities of PGRG (including conferences and workshops), and information relevant to researchers and practitioners in population geography, including new developments, conference reports, jobs, funding opportunities, journal content alerts, and forthcoming meetings. It follows a 'blog post' method which is more dynamic, and easier to update and read, than a traditional static website. As well as a conventional hierarchical menu, the content can be accessed through a keyword "tag cloud", displaying tag frequencies, or a search menu for specific terms. An RSS feed is also available to automatically notify users of new posts, or feed this information to other websites.

The aim of the new PGRG website is to become the main repository of key information for population geographers in the UK and beyond. Please disseminate this URL as widely as possible among academics, students, and practitioners. Material for posting on the website should be sent to Pablo Mateos (, Communications Officer, PGRG
