Encyclopedia: ‘World of Regional Science’

Invitation to RSAI members


Dear regional science colleague:

We have decided to compose a unique volume which summarizes the ‘world of regional science’ in the form of an Encyclopedia. This major opus seeks to become a kind of ‘Wikipedia’ for regional scientists. It will comprise of an organized collection of hundreds of entries on concepts, theories, methods and applications. Each item will contain about 1000 words, written according to a systematic pre- determined format.

This work aims to become some sort of collective and shared body of knowledge in our field. Several hundreds of regional scientists from all over the world have already committed themselves to write an item text, which does not take much time. At this moment we still have a vacancy for about 100 entries (see attached list). All regional scientists are cordially invited to write a concise entry on one of the selected topics, by writing before December 23, 2023 an expression of interest to the handling editor, Zeynep Elburz (This email address is being protected from spambots.

You will then receive the necessary information.

We hope to make this joint effect a collective success for regional science.
