How to publish in this journal


Journal of Settlements and Spatial Planning (JSSP) is a biannual, peer-reviewed, open access journal, edited by the Centre for Research on Settlements and Urbanism, Faculty of Geography, Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA. For the unrestricted access to potential subscribers all over the world the journal is published in English language and can be accessed electronically. The Journal of Settlements and Spatial Planning addresses mainly to geographers, young researchers and also to other specialists in adjacent fields of research that focus their attention on aspects related to settlements and spatial planning. On the other hand, it strongly encourages representatives of the public administration, who are responsible with the practical implementation of planning projects, to bring their contribution to the scientific field. Our journal seeks to publish original theoretical and applied research studies on a large range of subjects addressed to urban and rural settlements and spatial planning, as well as precise issues related to both of them. We welcome scholars to bring their contribution (original articles in basic and applied research, case studies) and increase interdisciplinary research on settlements and their spatial impact.
