The International Journal of Urban and Regional Research: An Editorial Statement


  • While we take full responsibility as co-editors of the journal for the views expressed here, we would like to acknowledge the comments of our colleagues on the Editorial Board and elsewhere to an earlier draft of this statement. We have sometimes taken these comments on board verbatim and directly and are grateful for this input. Given the diversity of identity, geographical origin, methodological preoccupation, disciplinary background and philosophical views represented on our Board, we must not fail to mention that various shades of difference exist among us as we approach our joint project of editing IJURR.
