Title:Reflections on 25 years of 'Urban Forum'
Authors:Visser, GustavISNI
Rogerson, Christian M.ISNI
Periodical:Urban Forum (ISSN 1874-6330)
Geographic term:South Africa
Abstract:This article reflects briefly on the evolution of 'Urban Forum' as it reaches the milestone of a quarter-century of academic publishing. In chronicling the past 25 years, a range of observations are made in terms of the institutional organisation of the journal, the thematic and spatial focus of research published, the flow of submissions and authorship. It is argued that much in the form of a unique investigatory research voice concerning the changing spatialities of African cities has been presented and explored. Nevertheless, there are further issues that require attention, which it is hoped will form part of future debates to be profiled in the pages of 'Urban Forum'. Bibliogr. [Journal abstract]
