About this list

This is a selective list of urban studies & planning-related journal titles, intended to give you an easy way to browse titles of possible interest.  Each title is linked to the library catalog, where you can find date coverage and ways to access the journal. 

If you find a title that looks relevant to your research, be sure to look at the subject headings in the catalog record.  Subject headings give you an idea of the primary focus of the journal, and clicking on a subject heading will find additional titles that share that focus.
