New Partnership Between The American Planning Association & Routledge Journals

New Partnership Between The American Planning Association & Routledge Journals


In 2008, Routledge will become the publisher of the Journal of the American Planning Association. For more than 70 years the quarterly has published original research, commentaries and book reviews of the highest quality, engaging its readers in building strong, vibrant communities. It is one of the world's most respected planning journals, revered by practising planners, policymakers and scholars for its authority, independence, and vision.

Routledge will also publish Planning & Environmental Law from 2008, the APA's must-read monthly digest of the latest state and federal court decisions and legislation on planning and environmental management. Planning & Environmental Law incorporates PEL Online, a comprehensive database which combines the perceptive commentaries and targeted abstracts of the journal into a powerful online research tool.

About the American Planning Association
The American Planning Association, founded in 1917 and based in Chicago, is a non-profit public interest and research organization representing 42,000 practising planners, officials and citizens involved with urban and rural planning issues. APA resulted from a consolidation of the American Institute of Planners, founded in 1917, and the American Society of Planning Officials, established in 1934. The organization has 47 regional chapters and 21 divisions devoted to specialized planning interests.
