The Journal of Environmental Psychology is directed toward individuals in a wide range of disciplines who have an interest in the study of the transactions and interrelationships between people and their sociophysical surroundings (including planned and natural environments) and the relation of this field to other social and biological sciences and to the environmental professions. The journal publishes internationally contributed empirical studies, reviews of research, and an extensive book review section. An important forum for the field, the content of the journal reflects the scientific development and maturation of the study of environmental psychology. Contributions on theoretical, methodological, and practical aspects of human-environment interaction are included, along with innovative and/or interdisciplinary approaches with a psychological emphasis.
Environment and Behavior brings you current research and theories as they develop. The articles are always fresh, the information consistently at the forefront of the discipline.

The Journal of Architectural and Planning Research is reporting both recent research findings and innovative new practices. It provides a link between theory and practice for researchers and practicing professionals. Original empirical research papers, theoretical and integrative review articles, book reviews, and high-quality position papers keep readers up-to-date on the latest ideas, designs, and developments in these related fields. A blind refereed, scholarly journal, JAPR includes three major areas in its comprehensive, interdisciplinary coverage:
Architectural and design research includes such topics as architectural technology; environment and behavior; design methods; architectural theory; architectural practice; design programming; business design research; computer applications to architectural practice; information technologies for design professionals; post-occupancy evaluation; environmental evaluation; social impact assessment; forecasting for the environmental professions; user participation; environmental education for the public; energy; site planning; topology; and building configuration. Urban planning research topics include, but are not limited to, social, geographic, administrative, and political studies of the factors that contribute to the shaping of neighborhoods, cities, and urban regions. Also of interest are topics that relate research to public or private sector policy-setting and administrative decision-making. Architectural design, interior design, and urban design may be of particular interest to practicing architects, designers, and urban planners. They cover the above topics as related to practice and allow for publication of architectural, interior, and urban design projects.
