Testimonials and Reviews

The International Journal of E-Planning Research delivers first class scholarship and critical perspectives on fast developing E-Planning techniques and practice. The range and quality of debate in the journal is making a valuable contribution to the use of advanced technologies in coming to better planning decisions and, importantly, to the widespread interest in the potential for more open forms of planning.
- Peter Newman, Unviersity of Westminster, UK

While we have long been familiar with the rapidly increasing power of computers and with the astonishing emergence of their graphic abilities, we are relatively newly aware of the opportunities offered by smartphones, cloud computing and the coming semantic web. Among the many areas to which these technologies may be applied, there are few more important that effective planning in the light of changing global and local conditions. IJEPR is an ideal forum for exploration of the relationship between the technologies and innovative applications in planning.
- Ian Bishop, University of Melbourne, Australia

International Journal of E-Planning Research (IJEPR) is a high quality peer-reviewed journal with strong emphasis on providing both theoretical and empirical research on e-planning and, more importantly, opening horizons for new ideas of planning. Its special strength is that it combines social and political dimensions of planning with technological one, which is the key to reshaping planning systems and processes of our time. IJEPR serves as the major global forum for exchanging ideas of e-enabled planning and related issues.
- Ari-Veikko Anttiroiko, University of Tampere, Finland

The International Journal of E-Planning Research is an excellent journal; I recommend it highly for anyone interested in the application of the latest information and communication technologies to planning and related fields.  It is particularly useful because it provides an international perspective on exciting e-planning applications such as Planning 2.0 and Web applications for planning.
