Scope Growth and Change: A Journal of Urban and Regional Policy welcomes manuscripts from scholars and professionals in all disciplines and specialties. Contributions from economics, geography, regional science, urban and regional planning, public finance, sociology, and agricultural economics are particularly encouraged. Increasingly we are interested in submissions that bring a multi-disciplinary perspective to bear on the problems addressed. Both policy and theoretical implications of topics and a focus on urban and regional development in domestic and international contexts are very appropriate. Innovative approaches and manuscripts, which address currently relevant issues in both global and national contexts, are sought. Examples of research that relate to urban and regional development include themes of innovation and technology, the digital economy, global production networks and their impact at a variety of geographic scales, entrepreneurship, economic restructuring (labor issues, outsourcing, knowledge workers), transportation (sustainability issues, travel behaviors, logistics and supply chain for competitive advantage), urban economics, rural futures and agriculture in the global economy.

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.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
