**We are excited to announce that Planning Theory & Practice has recently re-launched its reviews section as ‘Comments & Reviews’. **
The Editors invite contributions to this new section, which now includes three types of articles:
‘Comment’ articles: these contributions (of between 1,500 and 2,000 words) can include retorts to previously published Planning Theory & Practice articles or critical reflections on developments within theory and planning practice.
‘Policy & Planning Briefs’: these articles can include: (a) critical insights and analysis of key policy developments and debates, and (b) analysis of spatial plans based on describing the plan’s context, its aims and content, the planning process, and an illustration or map.
Policy & Planning Briefs should have an international relevance and appeal, with contributions of between 1,500 and 2,000 words.
‘Book reviews’: should normally be between 800 and 1,000 words. The review should give the journal audience a concise summary and offer a critical assessment of the book’s content. We also welcome articles that re-evaluate ‘classic’ planning texts within the context of a more recent publication.
Planning Theory & Practice provides an international focus for the development of theory and practice in spatial planning and a forum to promote the policy dimensions of space and place. Published four times a year, the journal publishes original articles and review papers from both academics and practitioners with the aim of encouraging more effective, two-way communication between theory and practice.
Comment & Reviews or suggestions for contributions should be emailed directly to the Reviews Editor, Mark Scott. Email:
