Journal of Urbanism: International Research on Placemaking and Urban Sustainability
The Journal of Urbanism is a multi-disciplinary journal that focuses on human settlement and its relation to the idea of sustainability, social justice and cultural understanding. It is concerned with the relative impact of design on environmental perception, urban liveability and the experience of space. The journal addresses a wide range of urban concerns, and aims, by publishing research from a variety of theoretical, methodological and conceptual perspectives, to create an attitude of sustainability toward urban form.
Cities: The International Journal of Urban Policy and Planning
Cities publishes articles on many aspects of urban planning and policy published by Elsevier. It distinguishes itself by providing an international and interdisciplinary platform for the exchange of ideas and information among urban planners, policy makers and analysts, and urbanists from all disciplines.
The primary aims of the journal are to analyse and assess past and present urban development and management as a reflection of effective, ineffective and non-existent planning policies; and the promotion of the implementation of appropriate urban policies in both the developed and the developing world.
Vernacular Architecture is the academic journal of the Vernacular Architecture Group. Global in its approach, the journal welcomes papers that use the detailed study of traditional buildings to explore the societies, cultures, and environments that shape them. Papers may focus on construction techniques and materials, historical development and design, and the social and economic contexts in which buildings were erected. Historical, ethnological, and archaeological approaches are welcomed, as are comparative studies, and papers which focus on the histories of individually significant buildings. Such papers sit alongside theoretical discussions on the concept and nature of vernacular architecture. The focus of all papers should be the vernacular buildings themselves.
