Editor's Introduction

We are pleased to present the fifth issue of Planning and Markets, a wholly electronic journal. Although there are many journals that now publish in both hard copy and electronic form, there are very few in the social sciences that are solely electronic.

Planning and Markets is a fully refereed journal. We welcome papers from market-oriented, planning, and more interventionist perspectives. The standards for publications in an electronic journal are identical to those of a hard-copy journal. All submissions should be unpublished. Each paper submitted is subject to external review by 2-3 outside referees and is also reviewed by each of the Editors.

Our aim is to beat other journals in terms of manuscript turnaround. This is where we can gain a competitive edge. We will publish issues as fast as the arrival of quality manuscripts dictate. The rest is up to you. If you have research results you believe are relevant to the Planning and Markets theme, please consider us for your future submissions. Submissions should conform to the style sheet posted on the Planning and Markets website.

Electronic journals are not only about convenience, but about spreading research results fast. Planning and Markets is free with no subscription rate. In this way, we hope to reach more readers than conventional hard-copy journals.

The Editors welcome comments about the authors' contributions or with suggestions for improving our communicability.
