Title: Landscape Journal and scholarship in landscape architecture: the next 25 years
Author: Gobster, Paul H.; Nassauer, Joan Iverson; Nadenicek, Daniel J.;
Source: Landscape Journal. 29(1): 52-70.
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Over the past 25 years Landscape Journal has made significant contributions to the scholarly base of knowledge needed for building the discipline of landscape architecture. The Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA), which owns Landscape Journal, recently identified five strategic goals for the journal: enhance subject- matter diversity, nurture scholarship in landscape architecture, increase readership and impact, reach out to diverse new contributors, and strengthen the connection to practice. Examination of its past performance relative to these goals and in comparison with other landscape disciplines and scholarly journals--through a variety of citation analysis tools, manual searches of the journal, and interviews of editors, publishers, and other decision makers in landscape architecture--shows that the journal is positioned to achieve some of these goals. Others will require substantive changes.
