Introducing JOSS EXTENDED

 
The JOSS Editorial Team are happy to announce that JOSS will add one more format of submission and publishing, called ‘JOSS Extended’. This format is subject to similar rigorous peer-review as all other submission forms, but recognising the wide scope of the journal it is clear that there are valuable contributions that would not be suitable within the standard submission formats...

Call for Papers 8(1): Models and Measures in Architecture, Geography and Planning Research

 
Ever since the first publication carrying the name of ‘space syntax’ in Environment and Planning B in 1976 (Hillier at al.) how we describe and model the physical environment has been of central importance for space syntax research. A wide range of different models have been developed, tested, refined, and discussed, including convex space graphs, interface maps, e-, p- and s-partitions, axial lines, segments, isovists, VGA, justified graphs, continuity lines, and so on—and similarly, a wide range of measures have been applied and developed in order to analyse the resulting graphs. But, models have not solely been subject to mathematical analysis; indeed, qualitative discussions of graphs as well as theoretical discussions of what they might represent or capture have been a notable strength of the field.

Continuing this tradition, JOSS 8 will focus on models and measures, and the first issue (8:1) will focus on the theme models and measures in architecture, geography and planning research, acknowledging the strong tradition within the field as well as in other fields, but also recognising the need to continuously refine, revisit, challenge, and develop all aspects of modelling and/or measuring built form. JOSS especially welcomes contributions from other fields and traditions that address models and measures concerned with the analysis, generation, interpretation or description of built form or socio-spatial structures, actions, or processes.

Papers of up to 8000 words are to be submitted to the editors via the JOSS website by 1st of September 2017. In order to register in our website and submit a paper, please contact the Coordinating Editor (Ann Legeby). Authors are advised to follow submission and author guidelines as found on the JOSS Citation Style guide.
