Introduction to the Journal

Focusing on research works relevant to the fields of architecture and planning, the Journal of Research in Architecture and Planning (JRAP) explores issues of relevance to both scholars and practitioners. JRAP was initiated in 2000 and is a peer reviewed journal published biannually since 2011. Every year one volume is planned on general topics and the other volume is a compilation of paper presented at the Conference of Urban and Regional Planning hosted by the Department of Architecture and Planning at NED UET. Contributions to the journal on general topics are accepted any time of the year and incorporated in coming issue after going through a peer review process. JRAP holds the privilege of being the first, and perhaps the only peer reviewed journal in the discipline of architecture and planning, published from Pakistan.
