The Journal of Regional Science is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by Wiley-Blackwell. Proceeded in the field of Regional Science only by Papers and Proceedings of the Regional Science Association (now Papers in Regional Science), the JRS was established in 1958 and published by the now-defunct Regional Science Research Institute in Philadelphia. The current Managing Editors are Steven Brakman (University of Groningen), N. Edward Coulson(University of California - Irvine), Alessandra Faggian (Gran Sasso Science Institute, L'Aquila, Italy), and Yasusada Murata (Nihon University). Contributors hold positions in a variety of academic disciplines, but (in no p[articular order) dominated by economics, geography, agricultural economics, rural sociology, urban and regional planning, and civil engineering. Articles are usually empirical, occasionally methodological or theoretical, but always quantitative.
