Scienze Regionali - Italian Journal of Regional Science, a multidisciplinary journal indexed in Scopus, is calling for papers on its Special issue “Mobility and public spaces for sustainable urban neighbourhoods”.
This Special issue seeks to bring together a collection of critical perspectives on sustainable mobility for liveable urban neighbourhoods. In particular, the special issue will seek to publish contributions that stimulate further debate and improve our understanding of how mobility and land use planning processes at the neighbourhood level can be analysed and assessed, from the multiple perspective of regional sciences (that is, using approaches from regional, urban and transport economics, spatial planning, economic geography, urban sociology, environmental economics, etc.).
Topics can include (but are not limited to):
· Superblock approaches
· 15-minute city and 20-minute neighbourhoods
· Street experiments and tactical urbanism
· Pedestrian areas and walkability
· Liveability of public spaces
· Planning tools for sustainable mobility at the neighourhood levels
· Governance, participation and conflicts in neighbourhood mobility planning
· Neighbourhood and urban accessibility for vulnerable populations
All articles will undergo a double-blind refereeing process.
The deadline for manuscript submission (8,000 words) is ** September 30, 2022**.
The special issue will be published in March 2023. Papers will be published online in the early access section upon final acceptance.
