More about Urban Food Futures’ articles:
- Editorial line: They cover any topic related to urban food systems. Urban Food Futures articles cover a wide array of issues related to urban food systems: from challenges to solutions. In this blog/ online magazine, you can read analysis about actions (carried out by citizens, communities or private actors), urban food policies (their levers, their governance and their impacts), other policies that have an impact on the sustainability of urban food systems. The primary focus of this online magazine is on countries from the Global North, but it covers other parts of the world when relevant.
- Article sources: all Urban Food Futures articles are based on scientific publications. Sources for the articles are academic articles, doctoral dissertations, books or book chapters, reports or conference presentations. They are selected for their scientific quality and their relevance for action. We give priority to literature reviews (rather than single case studies) and to innovative topics that prepare tomorrow’s urban food systems.
- Topics choice: all Urban Food Futures articles writers can choose from a publication list validated by our Editorial Board (ideas for new articles are welcome and will be included for validation by the Board).
- Articles length: our articles are around 1,000 words long.
- Languages: articles are published in English and French. Writers are not expected to write in both languages, as translation is performed separately if needed.
- Quality process: all Urban Food Futures articles are based both on the original academic paper and an interview with the paper’s lead author (who is also given the opportunity to review it), in order to ensure its quality. All Urban Food Futures articles are validated by the Editor in Chief.
