Nowhere are the effects of technology greater than in urban environments. Yet many who are in positions requiring them to make decisions about urban technologies have inadequate knowledge to do so. The Journal of Urban Technology (JUT) is designed for a general audience whose businesses, occupations, professions, or studies require that they become aware of the effects of new technologies on urban environments. It is the Journal's goal to have people better understand both cities and technologies so that they can improve the former by wisely using the latter. The Journal does not limit itself to discussions of technological developments; it also publishes discussions that examine the history as well as the ethical, social, economic, political, environmental, and aesthetic effects of those developments. Forthcoming Articles The Digital Technology Revolution and the Future of Cities Electronic Space and Power Virtual Cities, Social Polarisation, and the Crisis in Urban Public Space Webbed Cities and the Development of the US National Information Highway The New Environmental Wave and Brownfields Recycling Environmental Planning and the Compact City Cities, GIS and Ethics Focus Issues The Journal of Urban Technology publishes both open issues and focus issues. While open issues present articles of a wide range of topics and concerns, JUT's focus issues offer in-depth examinations of a single topic. In the past, focus issues have dealt with Brownfields Recycling; Sustainable Port Development; Residential Technologies; and Information Technologies and Inner-City Communities. Future focus issues will include: Sustainability and the Built Environment New Tunnel Technologies Universal Design, Disabilities and the Technologies of Cities New Feature Upcoming issues of the Journal of Urban Technology will offer profiles of research centres worldwide, whose work focuses on issues of technology's effects on urban environments.
