Call for papers on Urban Cycling Futures

Published: 8 February 2023

We are excited to share that we have just launched a new Article Collection on urban cycling futures. Please see the call here: Current Context and Research Agenda for Urban Cycling Futures. The Collection is hosted by the Taylor & Francis journal Urban, Planning and Transport Research a gold open access journal.

This collection invites contributions from multiple perspectives to better understand the role of cycling in radically transforming urban systems and vice-versa. The collection welcomes inter- and trans-disciplinary original research contributions that demonstrate creative approaches to studying urban cycling, using cycling as a case to challenge or rethink assumptions about mobility, and/or critical perspectives to transport technology and innovation narratives. Themes may include, but are not limited to:

  • the art and craft of developing cycling policy, building capacity, and/or encouraging institutional reform in favour of cycling
  • navigating (contested) public engagement or public acceptance strategies
  • street/public space experiments to enhance cycling and/or as agent of transformational change;
  • the role of gender, race, equity, justice and inclusion (could be in combination with other topics);
  • cycling and children, migrants, women and vulnerable and oppressed populations;
  • the social, spatial, and sensory experiences of cycling

The collection especially welcomes theoretical and research design approaches with innovative qualities that leverage knowledge from disciplines tangential to, or outside of, transportation and urban planning disciplines.

Would you be interested in submitting an article to this Collection? All articles submitted will undergo peer review and should they be accepted will be required to pay an article publishing charge. Authors submitting to this Collection are eligible to receive a discount.
