European Journal of Spatial Development (EJSD) is an open access journal providing high-quality scientific contributions to spatial planning, regional development, policy making and governance, from European and EU-related perspectives.

EJSD serves as a platform for critical academics and spatial development professionals to share cutting edge research. It publishes original contributions focusing on the multiple ways in which spatial development is coordinated, governed, and institutionalised at various scales, places and territories.

The journal is located within the subject area of Social Sciences, and predominantly linked to the subject categories of Spatial Planning and Development, Urban Studies, and Geography. Nonetheless, based on the journal’s multidisciplinary outlook, EJSD welcomes contributions from other fields if they explicitly contribute to research on European spatial development.  

EJSD shares the vision expressed in the Berlin Declaration on "Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities". EJSD signed the Declaration on 2024/02/29.
