Call For Papers | Special Issue: Spatial Analysis and Modeling

Asia-Pacific Journal of Regional Science

Special Issue: Spatial Analysis and Modeling


A majority of socio-economic phenomena are closely related to the geographic location and context where they occur. This underscores the need to analyze spatial processes, spatial dependence and spatial heterogeneity associated with these phenomena by means of spatially explicit models. Our understanding of urban and regional systems is uniquely enhanced by spatial analysis and modeling. In this special issue, we call for papers on a range of cutting edge issues of spatial analysis and modeling of relevance to urban and regional science. We welcome both theoretical developments of models and empirical applications. From the theoretical point of view, spatial models have to be general enough to be applicable to a number of spatial phenomena, but at the same time, the models should be flexible enough to be implemented to specific problems. From the empirical point of view, the application of spatial models should shed light on meaningful actual phenomena and their underlining processes. Economic and social issues in Asia-Pacific regions are becoming increasingly compelling and yet, spatial models that can be brought to bear on enhancing our understanding these issues and our ability to effectively alleviate them remain in their developing stage. We envision this special issue as a major contribution towards the promotion of this development.
