Online Information Bulletin

Versione italiana

   


1 January 2011

   
         

The Online Information Bulletin (OIB) is a new initiative of the Planning Studies Centre consisting of five sections:

Events and activities
Journals
Books of interest
Papers of interest
Research institutions in the spotlight

Information networks on Planning Studies

   
         
         
       
         
   
Events and activities
   
   
   
   
Update quarterly, the “Events and Activities” section of the Online Information Bulletin will highlight news received by the Planning Studies Centre, which may be of interest to scholars of the “Planning Sciences” (or “Planology”). The Centre cannot be held responsible for any imprecision, error or inconvenience, which may be derived from the information, of which the Bulletin is only a diffusion medium.
As the bulletin is quarterly, it is not possible to publish all events before they occur, in all cases where the event is not announced ex ante at least 3 months in advance. It has been decided to publish equally, an ex post note of an event and of its modalities to offer a panorama of some activities developed of interest for the special aims of the Centre.

Nel passato “moderno” con trasformazione urbana si intendeva soprattutto quel processo con cui le città progettavano la loro espansione, la loro continua e inarrestabile crescita al di là dei loro provvisori confini, nel territorio agrario e non urbanizzato, pensata per fronteggiare il processo veloce di inurbamento e per accrescere il potere simbolico ed economico delle città e delle metropoli, in un mondo in cui la “quantità” fisica e di popolazione rappresentava ancora un valore assoluto...
   
         
   

 

   
       
         
   
Journals
   
   
   

The “Journal” section of the Information Bulletin includes those journals that, in the vast field of Public Economics, Political Science, Town-Planning, Regional Science, Operative Research, Systems Engineering, Forecast Science, Administrative Science, Environmental Science, etc., are particularly characterised as being directed towards - in a trans-disciplinary way - integrated, systemic and strategic Planning. Naturally, the screening of these journals will only be possible within the limits of their reception on behalf of the staff of the Planning Studies Centre.

Books of Interest
   
   
   
 

The section “Books of interest” of the Online Information Bulletin of the Planning Studies Centre will include the abstracts of those books of possible and specific interest for the scholar of “Planning Sciences” (or Planology) that have been selected and received by the Centre. For some books, according to the staff's assessment, the abstracts will be complemented by a Review.
The classification of the abstracts of the books presented follows approximately the two first digits of the Planology Code established by the Planning Sciences Information System (PSIS) of the PSC.
Some of the books here registered are not very recent publications, even if they are all still in trade. The registration has followed the scientific considerations of the staff of the Planning Studies Centre, and if some books – normally all received by request of the PSC – have been assessed to be of particular interest by the staff, the criterion of noting only very recently published books has not been rigidly applied.
These bibliographic references express the scope of the PSC in all its limits, especially from the information point of view. The staff solicits other collaborators of the PSC and readers of the Bulletin to let them know about new books which deserve to be announced and possibly reviewed in this Bulletin.

Research institutions in the spotlight
   
   
   

The Centre intends to highlight periodically, in this section of the bulletin, a selection of some research institutions which deserve particular attention, either because they have established a meaningful series of new initiatives in the field of integrated planning or, simply because they have emerged as interesting new actors in said field.

GaWC Study Group and Network
Globalization and World Cities
http://www.lboro.ac.uk/gawc/
GaWC INTELLIGENCE Number 17

The IRS/ Institute for Regional Development and Structural Planning
Researches social, economic and spatial urban and regional development and it's governance.

The Canada School of Public Service
The Canada School of Public Service is the common learning service provider for the Public Service of Canada. It was created to bring a more unified approach to serving the common learning and development needs of public servants and to help ensure that all Public Service employees across Canada have the knowledge and skills they need to deliver results for Canadians.

   
         
       
         
   
Information networks on Planning Studies
   
   
   

In this section of Bulletin, some links will be inserted towards specialised networks of Planning Studies which will increase the level of acquaintance of activities that could be interesting for Planology scholars.

ASSOCIATION OF EUROPEAN SCHOOLS OF PLANNING - AESOP: Bologna Process
A survey which aims to establish the progress made toward the Bologna Process and the challenges faced by planning schools in making the necessary adjustments. Planning education is undergoing major reforms in many European countries, not least as a result of the Bologna Process which aims to create a compatible European Higher Education and Research Area across Europe by 2010.
