EURA Journal – EURA

EURA Journal


We launched our journal Urban Research & Practice in 2008.

Urban Research & Practice provides a systematic description of urban issues, urban developments and urban policy & implementation. It seeks to explain variations in urban policies or urban governance and analyse and evaluate the effects of these polices and processes. It also looks at the European-wide factors that impact on urban areas, urban policies and urban governance.

The journal aims to bridge the intellectual and geographical ‘divides’ that currently exist in the field of urban affairs. As well as traditional academic papers, the journal journal also includes sections on policy, project reports, and book reviews.

Urban Research & Practice appears three times a year in both print and online formats. It is under the editorial direction of Karsten Zimmermann, Technische Universität Dortmund (Germany). His fellow editors are Cristiana Rossignolo – Politecnico and University of Turin (Italy), Paula Russell – University College of Dublin (Ireland) and Cristina Stănuș – Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu (Romania).

In addition, the current Policy section is edited by Iván Tosics – Metropolitan Research Institute (Hungary), the Practice section is edited by Ignazio Vinci – University of Palermo (Italy) and Book Review section is edited by Sonia De Gregorio Hurtado – Polytechnic University of Madrid (Spain).

Professor Rob Atkinson, former editor of Urban Research & Practice, said: ‘The launch of Urban Research and Practice represents an important step forward in the development of EURA. It is a key part of our commitment to bring together scholars and practitioners from across Europe and beyond to focus on urban issues. We see this as an opportunity not only to disseminate knowledge based on high quality research but also to inform and engage with the important policy debates that are affecting cities in Europe and across the world’.

Rod Cookson, Urban Studies publisher at Routledge added: ‘We are delighted to be partnering with EURA in this new venture. Urban Research & Practice will provide a significant new outlet for quality research in a rapidly-expanding field, and will help policymakers develop deeper, richer engagement with the urban challenges that face Europe in coming decades.’
