Environment and Planning B Call for Abstract for Special Issue on
Integrating Spatial and Social Network Analyses

Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design (EPB) invites
abstracts for a special issue on "integrating spatial and social
network analyses of the built environment". The special issue will be
published in early 2017 and guest-edited by Xingjian Liu (The
University of Hong Kong) and Xinyue Ye (Kent State University).

Uncovering the interplay between physical and social aspects of the
build environment has both theoretical and practical implications for
urban planning and studies. Spatial analysis and social network
analysis have oftentimes been employed to reveal physical and social
configurations, respectively. Nevertheless, much empirical discussion
has focused on how developments in spatial and social network analyses
have separately contributed to the field. Emerging theoretical
perspectives, data sources, analytical methods, and study scales
provide new opportunities for bridging spatial and social network
analyses of the built environment. This special issue therefore aims
to reflect this latest progress. The scale of analysis could be at the
building, community, city, and/or regional level. Welcome are papers
that discuss how newly integrated analyses could contribute to urban
planning and urban design practices.

Extended abstracts (maximum 2 pages) should be sent to guest editors
Xingjian Liu ([log in to unmask]) and Xinyue Ye ([log in to unmask]) by March 15,
2016. The EPB editorial team and guest editors will consider all
abstracts and invite authors of selected abstracts to submit full
papers by April 15, 2016. Full submissions will be due on September 1,
2016 and have a target maximum length of 6,000 words. All submissions
will be subject to a full peer review process.
