How to publish in this journal


Ciudades is a scientific journal of annual periodicity, founded in 1993 and edited by the Instituto Universitario de Urbanística of the University of Valladolid (Spain), whose object is urbanism in a broad sense and that addresses the academic world as well as the citizenship interested in urban and territorial issues from various disciplines. The journal was born within the area of knowledge of Urban and Regional Planning with the vocation to promote the debate on the city and with the perspective of a better knowledge of urban phenomena. It refers to both theoretical and propositional approaches and to their interrelation with other disciplines such as architecture, engineering, geography, sociology, history, political science, anthropology, economics and ecology. The complexities and contradictions affecting cities are always on debate. Professionals and scholars of urban planning need to know urban and territorial phenomena and benefit from the promotion of a rooted culture that is sometimes little known or ignored, and yet constantly evolving.
