    Special Issue on Urban Planning and Management

    Urban planning is a technical and political process concerned with the development and design of land use and the built environment, including air, water, and the infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas, such as transportation, communications, and distribution networks. Urban planning deals with physical layout of human settlements. Urban management is the administration, organization and planning performed for cities or towns, particularly the process of converting farmland or undeveloped land into offices, businesses, housing and other forms of development.

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on Urban Planning and Management. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Urban development and strategies
    • Urban policy and affairs
    • City & regional planning

    • Land use and management
    • Urban services and planning
    • Urbanization
    • Housing management
    • Urban governance and resources management
    • Sustainability development

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.
