AbstractJournal of Planning Literature Editorial Editorial When I first became editor of the Journal of the Ameri- can Planning Association (JAPA), I thought it would be a nice idea to edit a journal for a while. Five years of doing that was fine. At the conclusion of my JAPA term, City and Regional Planning at Ohio State University (OSU) received funding from the university to start a new journal that became the Journal of Planning Literature (JPL). Little did I know that I was about to become in- volved in a project that would occupy a significant por- tion of my time for the next fifteen years or so. This is Volume 13, Issue 4, but publication was pre- ceded by almost two years of planning and develop- ment. The result is that I have been working on or editing planning journals for about twenty years. All things have to end, and I feel that it is time to move on to other things. The new editor will be Jack Nasar, who is a member of the City and Regional Planning faculty at OSU and the author of several books and numerous articles on environmental design and behavior.
