About the Journal

Urban Morphology is the Journal of the International Seminar on Urban Form. The journal features and invites articles that describe the morphology and structure of cities, their evolution, and their current and future impacts. The journal is published biannually in April and October.

The journal accepts submissions from scholars world-wide on the topics of urban form, typology, urban change, urban design and the history of urban form. Members of ISUF receive a printed copy of the journal sent to their address worldwide. Articles prior to 2017 are available as open source on this website; viewpoints and reports prior to 2006 can only be found in the print journal.
