Published by Emerald, this journal is unique in bringing together research from management, real estate, marketing, tourism, retailing, geography, public administration, sociology, planning and design to advance understanding of place making, place management, place marketing and responsible tourism. There are now 4 Issues per year and we have just published Volume 10 Issue 1 (you can access other recent Issues on the right). Earlier Volumes are available from our Emerald homepage.

The Editorial team always welcome submissions of articles for inclusion in the Journal from academics, practitioner and policy makers. As such, standard JPMD content will take the following four forms:
1. Research papers, which report on any type of research undertaken by the author(s), empirical or conceptual. These should be 4,000-6,000 words, including references, and will be subject to the current double-blind peer review process.
2. Case studies, which report on place management and development activities within a given location and draw out the lessons from these. Whilst the learning points from cases may have direct applicability to practitioners, we would also encourage cases that can be used in teaching. The maximum length for cases is 5,000 words, including references, and they are also subject to the current double-blind peer review process.
3. Commentaries or viewpoints, which are shorter pieces raising issues of current debate, concern or topical interest in the place management and development field. These should be no longer than 3,000 words, including references, and will be reviewed by two members of the editorial management team.
4. Book reviews of new publications in the place management and development field. These should be no longer than 1,000 words, including references, and will be reviewed by two members of the editorial team.
We have a guide to writing for the Journal for practitioners which you can read here.
