Journal of Planning Education and Research

In July of 2016 the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University assumed editorship of The Journal of Planning Education and Research (JPER) for a five-year term. The editorial team consists of co-editors Clint Andrews and Frank Popper, managing editor Karen Lowrie and editorial assistant Jonathan Stiles.

The Journal of Planning Education and Research is the official journal of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP) and consistently ranks among leading peer-reviewed planning journals. Aimed at scholars and educators in urban and regional planning, political science, policy analysis, urban geography, economics, sociology and computational applications, JPER presents the most vital contemporary trends and issues in planning theory, practice, and pedagogy. JPER is published quarterly by SAGE Publications on behalf of ACSP.
