This is the editorial department of the journal of China City Planning Review (CCPR). We are glad to inform you that your nomination as a member of  the Editorial Board of CCPR has been approved by the Urban Planning Society of China at the 3rd Meeting of the 2nd Editorial Board Committee of CCPR. Your name will be added to the list of Editorial Board Members on the third cover page from December this year.

Above message has arrived at my inbox a couple of days ago, and I am happy to be joining the editorial board of the journal. According to its web site, which also seems to have been redesigned recently, it publicises itself as “one and only professional and academic English periodical in the area of urban planning and design”. The journal is “published by the Urban Planning Society of China, in cooperation with Center for Human Settlements of Tsinghua University, School of Architecture of Tsinghua University, and Beijing Tsinghua Tongheng Planning & Design Institute.” I look forward to working closely with other colleagues from and outside China who are part of the journal in the coming years.
