Information For Librarians

We encourage research librarians to list Raumforschung und Raumordnung | Spatial Research and Planning (RuR) among their library's electronic journal holdings.

RuR is a Gold Open Access journal. All articles published since 1987 in RuR are open access. They can be read online and downloaded free of charge.

Articles in RuR are published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Licence CC BY 4.0.

Authors retain copyright.

After online first publication of an article, author charges, known as article processing charges, of € 250 plus VAT are incurred. There are no submission fees. If authors are unable to pay the charges, they should contact the editors-in-chief regarding waivers. The journal owners have established “hardship funds” that may be possible to access.

Article processing charges or waiver status do not influence editorial decision making.
