Future Cities and Environment publishes high quality multi-disciplinary research which aims to reduce the environmental impact of cities. Considering research in the areas of transport, urban planning, architecture and design, and energy and infrastructure, it publishes fundamental and applied research, critical reviews and case studies. This includes experimental development, demonstration and computer modelling.
Buildings & Cities is an international, open access, peer-reviewed academic journal publishing high-quality research and analysis on the interplay between the different scales of the built environment: buildings, blocks, neighbourhoods, cities, building stocks and infrastructures. The journal focuses on built environment policy, practices and outcomes and the range of human development, economic, environmental, political, social and technological issues occurring over the full life cycle in urban, suburban and rural contexts. It provides a platform for insights that can help improve the built environment.
Buildings & Cities aims to make research accessible and relevant to academics, policymakers, practitioners, clients, and occupants.
Environment and Planning B: Urban Analytics and City Science is the leading journal for the publication of high-quality articles that present cutting-edge research in analytical methods for urban planning and design. The journal focuses on smart cities, urban analytics, GIS, and urban simulation models. It also deals with visualisation, computation, and formal design-based methods applicable to morphological processes and structures in cities and regions.
A peer-reviewed journal, IJTC provides an international forum for the study of urban tourism and tourism cities. The journal aims to be inter-disciplinary in its appreciation of tourism cities and tourism in urban areas.

Cities & Health provides an innovative new international platform for consolidating research and know-how for city development to support human health. The journal is committed to developing a shared evidence base, encouraging better cross-disciplinary understanding and supporting critical trans-disciplinary practices. The journal will publish papers and commentary from researchers and practitioners working to build a new wisdom for supporting healthier cities.
Cities & Health explores the drivers of urban change through the lenses of health and health equity. From climate change to the digital city, from city leadership to community resilience, cities all over the world are in transition. The journal will cover a wide range of topics but public health needs to be at the heart of the discourse.
Cities & Health promotes greater discourse between the many disparate professions and disciplines involved. The journal invites contributions from a broad range of disciplines, including, but not limited to:
Building impact through City Know-how
Through practitioner involvement, Cities & Health will develop a close relationship with cities, allowing researchers to test new knowledge for real world impact and accelerate the dissemination of their findings. Unique to this journal authors will be asked to provide a one page lay summary of their papers specifically to illustrate its relevance for the practitioner community and to inform city authorities. A forum of city leaders and practitioners who are already fostering change will review these lay summaries. We will support authors with this process, which is aimed at increasing real world impact. These City Know-how pages, with associated commentary, will be widely circulated.
Cities increasingly want to act as laboratories for revealing problems and testing solutions. Cities & Health is an invitation to forge a new placed-based trans-disciplinary alliance for health; an alliance involving theorists, researchers, educators and practitioners.
Peer Review Statement
All Research Articles are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by at least two, independent, anonymous expert referees. All peer review is double blind.
Building and Environment is an international journal that publishes original research papers and review articles related to building science and human interaction with the built environment.The Journal invites research articles conveying robust, tested knowledge on:•technologies and integrated systems for high performance buildings and cities•thermal, acoustic, visual, air quality building science and human impacts•tools for the design and decision-making community, including tested computational, economic, educational and policy tools.•solutions for mitigating environmental impacts and achieving low carbon, sustainable built environments.The Journal is focused on new knowledge, rigorously verified with measurement and analysis, related to the environmental performance of buildings in different scales, ranging from cities, communities, buildings, to building systems and assemblies.
