Urban and Regional Planning Review (URPR) is an interdisciplinary journal for urban and regional planning. It publishes reviewed manuscripts in electrical format and the first issue was published in 2014.
Articles for URPR may be theoretical or contain empirical research outcomes, written in English, not only by academics but also professional planners. They are expected to have original content and should not have been previously published, nor be under simultaneous consideration by another academic journal.
Objectives, research methodologies, and conclusions must be logically consistent, and the conclusion in particular must highlight not only previously unknown findings but also new themes for further research in urban and regional planning.
Currently, we begin the review system immediately after receiving a contributed manuscript. It may take at least a few months for the editorial board to reach a final decision regarding acceptance. Accepted one will formally be published in electrical format on the J-Stage website [here] sequentially.
Editor in Chief Prof. Yasushi ASAMI (Graduate School of the Univ. of Tokyo)
