Urban Affairs Review (UAR) has been a leading scholarly journal focused on urban politics, policy, and governance for fifty years. Submissions reflecting different scholarly disciplines and methodological perspectives are welcome when the research advances theory and improves our understanding of political processes, policy impacts, and approaches to governance in urban, regional, and metropolitan settings. The Urban Affairs Review is affiliated with American Political Science Association’s section on Urban Politics.

Urban Affairs Review is a peer-reviewed, bi-monthly journal focused on questions of politics, governance, and public policy specifically as they relate to cities and/or their regions. Submissions of empirical and comparative research from different scholarly disciplines and methodological perspectives are encouraged.

Potential topics include: civic and political engagement; racial and ethnic politics; local and regional institutions; municipal fiscal health; and analyses of urban public policies directed at community development; economic, civic, and environmental sustainability; public education, affordable housing, public transportation, public safety, and physical infrastructure.

  • Urban Affairs Review (UAR) now has moved to an online submission system (SAGE Track). By doing so Urban Affairs Review will further streamline the process from initial submission by author(s) through publication. In addition, authors will be able to track the status of their manuscript through the review process.

    In order to effectively manage this transition, the journal requests that you use the following guidelines when making your submission.

    • Submit manuscripts electronically at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/uar
    • In order to submit a manuscript, the corresponding author must create an account on the online system.
    • Additional information about creating an account and submitting manuscripts are also provided on the website.

    In addition, be aware that submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content.

    General Guidelines for Submitting Manuscripts

    Manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with the Chicago Manual of Style (15th edition) guidelines. Articles and Research Synthesis manuscripts should not exceed 12,000 words (approximately 30 pages) and Research Notes should not exceed 5,600 words (approximately 14 pages). These limits are provided as a guide to authors and longer versions (particularly for Research Notes) may be considered. Word count totals include all text, endnotes, references, tables and figures.

    All text, endnotes, and references should be typed and double-spaced, with one-inch margins. An abstract of approximately 150 words should accompany the manuscript.

    UAR utilizes a double-blind review process to evaluate manuscripts for publication. The author(s) identity must not be indicated on the title page or any other place in the document submitted and all obvious references that reveal the author(s) identity, including previous work, should be omitted in the version submitted for review. Please do not upload a second title page listing the author information. Sagetrack captures author information as part of the submission process, making this additional title page unnecessary.

    For any other queries regarding the submission process please consult the UAR Blog www.urbanaffairsreview.blogspot.com or contact the managing editor at urban.affairs.review@gmail.com. Here are the contact details of the editorial office:
