The Journal's Objectives

     • provide an outlet for interdisciplinary
     • research on regional and urban issues;
     • encourage academics to undertake research
     • on regional issues;
     • promote the exchange of ideas across
     • different academic disciplines.

The Canadian Journal of Regional Science is unique in the Canadian context since it provides a critical research outlet for interdisciplinary work on regional and urban issues in the nation. Its authors come from the disciplines of economics, geography, sociology and political science.

It is important that the Canadian Journal of Regional Science continue as an outlet for regional research in the country. There can be little doubt that with the geographic size of the nation, the different endowments across the provinces, the different cultural groups and the persistent regional economic disparities, that the field of regional science as an interdisciplinary subject can provide useful insight into the regional problems in Canada.

Origin and Evolution of the Journal

The Canadian Journal of Regional Science began publication in 1978 at the Regional and Urban Studies Centre, Institute of Public Affairs, Dalhousie University under the co-editorship of Andrew S. Harvey and William J. Coffey. In 1988 the editorship (and production) moved to INRS-Urbanisation at the Université du Québec a Montréal with Professor Jacques Ledent as editor.

Beginning with Volume 16 (1993), production of the journal moved to the Department of Economics, University of New Brunswick with William J. Milne serving as editor. Christopher Bryant of Université de Montréal became editor beginning with Volume 20 (1997) and continued through Volume 33 (2010). During those years production was overseen Assistant Editor Doug Woodward.

Starting with the first issue of Volume 33 (2010), the journal moved to an online, open access format. Professor John Miron of the University of Toronto Scarborough assumes the editorship beginning with Volume 34 (2011).

The Canadian Journal of Regional Science / Revue canadienne des sciences régionales is the journal of the Canadian Regional Science Association / Association canadienne des sciences régionales.
