We welcome you to the web site of the Southern
Regional Science Association (SRSA). It is an association for the
advancement of regional analysis and related spatial and areal studies.
It operates as an objective, scientific organization without political,
social, financial, or nationalistic bias. Its main objectives are to
foster the exchange of ideas and to promote studies focusing on
regional topics and issues and utilizing tools, methods, and
theoretical frameworks specifically designed for regional analysis as
well as concepts, procedures, and analytical techniques of the various
social and other sciences. The Association supports these objectives by
promoting acquaintance and discussions among its members and with
scholars in related fields, by stimulating research, by encouraging the
publication of scholarly studies, and by performing services to aid the
advancement of its members and the field of regional science.
We invite you to browse our site and keep abreast of upcoming news of
the SRSA. Visit the Regional Science Association
International (RSAI) for membership information and updates
