Scope Urban Policy and Research is an international journal dedicated to the publication of refereed articles in English in the field of urban studies and urban policy for those with an interest in Australia, New Zealand and the wider Asia Pacific region. The scope of the journal is international in two senses: it presents to a worldwide readership a view of the urban policies of particular countries, and it encourages dialogue among researchers, policy makers and practitioners in the Australasian region. Urban Policy and Research seeks to develop better links between theoretical and empirical research and urban policy practice. It seeks to stimulate informed debate about urban issues by publishing peer-reviewed research articles and practice review papers from a wide range of theoretical, ideological and methodological approaches. We also encourage papers from scholars in the UK, EU and USA/Canada that offer comparative analyses of Australian/New Zealand and Asia-Pacific urban policy issues.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
