    Regular Issue: Ekistics and the New Habitat
    Vol. 84 No. 1 (2024)

    The International Journal of Ekistics and the New Habitat, since its evolution from the renowned Ekistics journal in 2019, has proven itself as an active global platform for systematic, international, and comprehensive publication. Undergoing a restructuring in the new leadership during the first half of 2023, the journal now operates on a two-pillar management system, consisting of a core executive board of editors and a substantial editorial advisory board, both characterized by diversity and distinction, including prominent scholars and experts spanning various continents and disciplines. Ekistics and the New Habitat journal presently prioritizes expanding its global academic community and enhancing visibility, through raising its standards to attain higher rankings in recognition of its commitment to excellence.

     

    Inspired by Constantinos A. Doxiadis (1913-1975) whose international outlook and a mission to enhance the quality of human settlements founded Ekistics, this general issue presents a new perspective for Ekistics and the New Habitat journal by focusing on a variety of crucial subjects associated with human settlements, spanning both theoretical considerations and diverse developmental contexts in regular and themed issues. It features four scholarly articles authored by renowned academics, encouraging further reflection on different facets of cities and urban environments. Additionally, another esteemed scholar presents his viewpoint in an article of that nature - a recently introduced submission format for the journal.

    Special Issue: Saudi Vision 2030 - Habitats for Sustainable Development
    Vol. 81 No. 2 (2021)

    Saudi Vision 2030 is Saudi Arabia's vision for the future. It is a package of social and economic policies that are designed to free the kingdom from dependence on oil exports and to build a prosperous and sustainable economic future by focusing on the country's strength and policies. The Saudi Vision 2030 is calling for action in several sectors related to design practice and the built environment. The solution to the demand for design increasingly takes the form of a continuum of products, services and communication as part of strategies which embrace broad issues ranging from technologies to culture, from strategies to the planning of visions and scenarios, with a view to innovation, and environmental and social sustainability. The forthcoming Special Issue: Saudi Vision 2030 - Habitats for Sustainable Development, presents a diverse range of analyses and case studies.
