Aims and Scope

The Journal of Regional Science (JRS) publishes original analytical research at the intersection of economics and quantitative geography.  Since 1958, the JRS has published leading contributions to urban and regional thought.  This includes rigorous methodological contributions and seminal theoretical pieces.  The JRS is one of the most highly cited journals in urban and regional research, planning, geography, and the environment.  The JRS continues to publish work that advances our understanding of the geographic dimensions of urban and regional economies, human settlements, and policies related to cities and regions.
