Call for Papers 	 

Planews is a peer-reviewed journal of the Singapore Institute of
Planners (SIP), published twice a year. Two issues of a year make up one

The journal's primary objective is to bring together planning practice
and research to the discussion forum. Based on planning experiences of
different countries, we seek to explore and encourage planning debates
leading to critical evaluation of planning in practice. Our hope is that
research findings could help contribute towards planning for an improved
urban living environment, and guiding the directions for the future.
