Abstract

From time to time it is appropriate for editors to revisit a journal's aims and scope and assess whether the statement accurately describes what the journal is about to current and potential participants in the journal community as well as to broader societies of concern. With the third editorship of Landscape and Urban Planning now having been involved in planning and everyday operations for nearly two years, we have had time to review the journal's history and evolution, examine current trends in articles published in it and related journals, and think more broadly about the role of the journal in communicating knowledge to improve human and environmental well-being. Based on these activities, we present our revised aims and scope, followed by a brief elaboration of its various elements.
