Submissions


The Urban Transcripts Journal is open to submissions of original as well as previously published work which explores the multiple facets of our urban world. We welcome submissions of work for publication in the following sections of the journal:

Short Articles
Long Articles
Urban Design Projects and Proposals
Urban Interventions
Mapping and Urban Visualisations
Drawing
Photography
Short Film

For all submissions in these categories this journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. All submissions are reviewed by 2 reviewers including members of our editorial board and authors previously published in this journal. We evaluate each submission on the basis of: 1) its relation to the theme of the journal, 2) its ability to communicate to a broad audience, 3) its creativity and originality, 4) its critical position, and 5) its scholarly and/or technical quality.

We equally welcome suggestions for interviews and book reviews. Please get in touch with us for more information.
