PlaNext Volue 2

About plaNext–Next Generation Planning

plaNext–Next Generation Planning is an international peer-reviewed open access e-journal. The young academics network of AESOP founded plaNext to provide prospective authors with an opportunity to engage their ideas in international planning debates as well as to make their research available to the wider planning audience. plaNext invites authors to submit original work that includes: empirical research; theoretical discussions; innovative methodologies; case studies; and book reviews on selected books, textbooks, or specific topics dealing within planning.

Two volumes are published per year. The first volume compiles manuscripts submitted anytime of the year, investigating any planning related issue. Manuscripts would be published as Online First, once submitted manuscripts become accepted for publication. The second volume consists of selected contributions from the annual conference of AESOP’s Young Academics Network. All manuscripts published in plaNext are published open access and thus are freely and permanently available to the general public for comments and discussions.
