Penn Institute for Urban Research launches Urban Research eJournal
September 20, 2012
The University of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Urban Research, co-chaired by Eugenie Birch, the Nussdorf Professor of Urban Research, co-chair of the World Urban Campaign, and ULI/Citistates Summit presenter, has launched a new research forum dedicated to disseminating the latest scholarly work on urbanism and sustainability.
The eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts establishing a platform through which researchers can access the latest urban focused research from scholars worldwide. Global urbanization has led to a new emphasis in urban-focused research at the intersection of numerous disciplines, including anthropology, city planning, economics, history, political science, real estate, sociology and area studies, all forces contributing to the development of sustainable urban forms. A primary goal of the Urban Research journal is to gather and distribute new research that addresses the governance, policy, economics, design and social issues that surround global urbanization.
