inPlanning, AESOP's "Publishing platform for spatial planning" has recently launched a new product which may be of interest for YA members. It's the PhD series, designed to "present your PhD thesis internationally in the best possible way".

We attach below the description at the inPlanning site, which you can visit for all details and contacts.



How to present your PhD thesis internationally in the best possible way? How to make sure your findings will not remain unnoticed, disappear or get lost…? The InPlanning PhD series positions your PhD thesis right at the centre of the international planning community. InPlanning is AESOP’s digital publishing platform. InPlanning supports the publication of the highest quality and well-respected theses in the network. Societal relevance features strongly within the theses that are published.

Spatial relevance

InPlanning presents theses with spatial relevance to an international audience. By spatial relevane we mean those that deal with spatial and institutional design, planning theory and practice, social geography and (landscape) architecture, but also to decision-making, governance and choice regarding the physical environment.

The InPlanning PhD series enjoys international recognition. All publications that are published as part of the series appear under the authority of AESOP (Association of European Schools of Planning). AESOP encourages European differentiation, and therefore appreciates that InPlanning embraces publication in multiple languages. The publications in the series are consequently written in a specific European language or in English, depending on the conditions of a school or depending on national conventions with regard to PhD theses.

Your thesis will become part of the InPlanning portfolio. Via InPlanning this portfolio will attractthe attention of various planners and their networks. The first thesis published as an e-book in the InPlanning PhD series was ‘Zelforganisatie in de buurt’ [Self-organization within the Neighbourhood], a thesis written in Dutch by the spatial planner Ivo Nienhuis.
