Metropolitics is a peer-reviewed online journal that publishes concise (1,500-word) pieces on urban issues. The goal of Metropolitics is to present work based on original research in a format and time frame that makes it relevant to a broad readership, and allows researchers to contribute effectively to public debates. We publish articles several times a week.

Metropolitics was established by, and works in collaboration with, Métropolitiques, a French- and English-language peer-reviewed online journal based in Paris. With a network of corresponding editors around the world, Metropolitics attracts an international audience. It seeks to shift the lines of public debate, and provides a space for analysis of the transformation of cities around the world.

What we publish:

  • Essays (1,500 words) in which researchers can use studies to develop arguments relating to wider societal and political debates, and which provide a new perspective on key urban issues and challenges.
  • Debates (1,500 words) relating to current social, professional or political developments on current issues, as well as concise presentations of the state of scientific knowledge bearing on current public debate.
  • Reports From the Field (1,500 words) informing our readership, via case studies, of experiments or remarkable situations that shed new light on urban events, phenomena and developments.
  • Reviews (1,000 words) of books, exhibitions or other events. The goal of a review is to present the thesis of the work and evaluate its intellectual contribution for a wide audience.
  • Interviews with activists and policymakers, presented in audio, video or text form.

Access to Metropolitics is free. Articles can be downloaded as PDF files; videos are available as podcasts.
