Critical Planning volume 12 summer 2005
Critical Planning, a journal produced by students of the UCLA Department of
Urban Planning in association with students from the University of Southern
California and the University of California, Irvine, welcomes submissions
from graduate students, faculty and professionals for its upcoming volume.
The theme of the upcoming issue is: TECHNOLOGY AND CITIES.
We define technology broadly. For instance, articles may investigate how
technology has contributed to understanding, analyzing, and addressing
issues in transportation and environmental planning; how technological
(low-cost or high end) innovations in infrastructure, health and education
have contributed to community, economic and international development; how
technological transformation of urban security and surveillance creates
contestable ethical and social spaces; how globalization through digital
technology affects governments or civil society at different levels; ways by
which simple or sophisticated technology has altered grassroots community
development strategies; the transformation of labor - employment and
industry - owing to technology; or how the media as technology has changed
the awareness and practice of planning. Authors are encouraged to explore
any other possible manifestations of technology in the planning sphere.
In addition to articles along the main theme, Critical Planning also accepts
submissions relevant to cities and regions in general.
Articles must not exceed 25 typed, double-spaced pages (this includes a
100-word abstract, tables, illustrations, endnotes and references).
Submissions must follow the style and spelling requirements of the Chicago
Manual of Style, 14th Edition. References should be cited in the text using
the author's last name, year of publication, and page number where
appropriate. Endnotes may be used in moderation. Submissions are anonymously
reviewed, according to the following criteria: clear statement of thesis and
objectives, relevance of the subject matter, clear development of ideas and
concise writing. All submissions are subject to final content and style
editing by the editors prior to publication.
Please submit four (4) paper copies to Critical Planning. Include a cover
sheet with the title of the article, the author's name, phone number, email
address and a two-sentence biographical statement.
