Tema. Journal of Land Use, Mobility and Environmentvol

Tema - Journal of Land Use, Mobility and Environment offers researches, applications and contributions with a unified approach to planning and mobility. From 2016, TeMA is a scientific journal in A category by ANVUR (excellent scientific journal according to Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes). TeMA Journal has also received the Sparc Europe Seal for Open Access Journals released by Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC Europe) and the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

  • TeMA vol. 15 (2022) - Call for Papers

    2021-07-25

    The climatic, social, economic and health phenomena that have increasingly affected our cities in recent years require the identification and implementation of adaptation actions aimed at improving the resilience of urban systems.

    The challenge that the complexity of the phenomena in progress imposes on cities not only the adoption of mitigation measures aimed at reducing the effects of these phenomena; this challenge requires scholars, researchers, technicians and decision makers to rapidly commit to transforming cities into resilient and competitive urban systems.

    With these premises, TeMA Journal wants to foster a debate within the international scientific community on the following topics:

    • definition of new interpretative paradigms that place at the center the unavoidable need to adapt urban systems to external agents;
    • definition of planning tools, methods and techniques aimed at promoting city adaptation interventions to foreseeable external agents;
    • the flexible city: antifragility, resilience and temporariness in post-pandemic urban scenarios;
    • the growing vulnerabilities (social, economic, spatial, etc.) and the necessary reduction of energy consumption require a new approach to the city that combines resilience and energy saving;
    • from recovery to regeneration: the reorganization of the city and its reconstruction between efficiency, quality and reduction of impacts.

    Authors interested in submitting manuscripts addressing the issues may consider the following deadlines:

    • First issue: 10th January 2022;
    • Second issue: 10th April 2022;
    • Third issue: 10th September 2022.

  • Covid-19 vs City-21

    2021-02-24

    This new temporary section comes from the discussions and scientific works arising by the reflections and considerations proposed in the TeMA Special Issue Covid-19 vs City-20, which collected contributes of some Italian researchers and technicians on the scenarios, insights, reasoning, and research on the relations between the City and the impacts of Covid-19 pandemic, questioning about the development of a different vision and a general rethinking of the city.

    For this call for paper, the journal welcomes papers that explore the experiences and innovative methods and tools proposed at the urban and territorial level during the Covid-19 crisis, trying to understand relationships between “urban planning” and spread of infection considering the long-term impacts and perspectives that the pandemic is highlighting in the different worldwide contexts.

  • TeMA vol. 14 (2021): The city challenges and external agents. Methods, Tools and Best Practices

    2020-10-13

    Cities need to modify and/or adapt their urban form, the distribution and location of services and learn how to handle the increasing complexity to face the most pressing challenges of this century. On these topics and the ones born during the last year, the scientific community is working in order to minimise negative effects on the environment, social and economic issues and people’s health.

    In particular, TeMA Journal intends to propose articles that deal the effects of climate change, the ageing of the population, the reduction of energy consumption from fossil fuels, immigration flows from disadvantaged regions, innovation technology, the optimisation of land use and the impacts, in the short and long period, with innovative methods, tools, techniques and practices.

    Authors interested in submitting manuscripts addressing the issues may consider the following deadlines:

    • First issue: 10th January 2021;
    • Second issue: 10th April 2021;
    • Third issue: 10th September 2021.
