About the Journal

SKETCH: THE JOURNAL OF CITY AND REGIONAL PLANNING (S:JCRP) is a peer reviewed international open access journal e-published twice a year on every June and December, addressing issues on planning and design of the built environment in various scales, emphasizing the interfaces between urban and regional planning, policy, design and management through a wide and interdisciplinary approach.

The aim of the Journal is to gather a wide range of innovative studies on the advancements and discussions, to promote further research in specific issues on planning and design of the built environment (see Scope of the Journal), and to provide an international and interdisciplinary platform for theoretical and research papers that make significant contributions to the understanding, practice, and education on planning and design of built environment. The Journal also encourages an approach to research in planning and design that will close the gap between the well-established theory and diverse practice throughout the world.

The Journal seeks to widen the limits of planning and design of built environment by motivating the submission of manuscripts from both interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives.
