Our Editorial Process
The New Georgia Encyclopedia (NGE) has developed a thorough process to ensure that the encyclopedia remains an accurate, complete, and unbiased resource on all things Georgia.
All topics for new entries must receive advance approval from NGE editors. Entries will not be published without a signed contract. To submit a new topic for approval, please complete our contact form.
꧟The New Georgia Encyclopedia is used as a basic reference for general readers with a wide range of interests and needs. Entries should therefore be easily accessible in terms of language and content.
