Call for papers

Environnement Urbain/Urban Environment

The first issue of _Environnement Urbain_ / _Urban Environment_ is now 
available online at http://www.vrm.ca/cyber-revues.asp
  and the editor would like to invite interested scholars to submit 
their work to the journal. Interdisciplinary and international, the 
journal publishes scholarly articles, review articles, book reviews and 
critical reviews. The articles undergo peer evaluation, must increase 
knowledge in the field and be highly innovative. Manuscripts may be 
submitted in either English or French.

The journal considers for publication high quality, original texts 
dealing with one or more social, political, cultural, anthropological 
or economic aspects of the environment. However, its scope is limited 
to urban and metropolitan areas. Contributors are invited to discuss 
the situations in Québec or Canada, but may also include the state of 
affairs in other parts of the world. Theoretical and methodological 
articles are also welcome.

We seek papers that, in one way or another, are connected to the 
relationship between urban societies and their environment. Relevant 
topics range from urban ecology to the history of the environment, the 
status of nature in the city, the attributes and quality of natural and 
built environments, the impact of environmental stress on health, 
metropolitan governance and environmental aspects of urban economies. 
The journal places no restrictions on the way contributors wish to 
treat these issues.

The journal editor also welcomes proposals for special issues that 
address relevant and timely topics. Proposals submitted by a guest 
editor must include a brief outline of the topic to be addressed, 
including the names of those who were asked to submit a paper for
