On top of all these activities, since 1995 the SCG has also promoted the prize Lluís Casassas directed to promote geographic research among students and recent graduates in geography. The new prize Joan Palau Vera established in 2004 wants to promote geography inquire among high school students in Catalonia.
Treballs de la Societat Catalana de Geografia is the academic journal and is published twice a year since 1984. It includes both research papers as well as the lectures organized during the year and other notices relevant to the community of Catalan geographers. This journal has an external peer review system and its editorial board is formed by prestigious geographers from around the world.
