Cities and the Environment (CATE)
Cities and the Environment publishes peer-reviewed scholarship on the research, education, and practice related to the broad field of urban ecology.
We encourage submissions of well-written, relevant articles across many article types. We also have the ability to publish less traditional scholarly works including multi-media products such as simulations, video streams, audio productions, and other visualization tools.
This is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the users or their institutions. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.
