Theoretical and Empirical Researches in Urban Mnagement publishes papers that are addressed to the theory, research and practice relating to urban management. All papers relating to this area are welcomed.

Manuscripts should be written in English. The text should be carefully checked for typing errors, English grammar, spelling, and punctuation, etc.

The manuscripts must be prepared electronically in Microsoft Word format, using the rules specified in Manuscript preparation and Manuscript style sections and should be submitted by e-mail to the address: (not to the publisher email, because the publisher handles many journals). Please send the content of the manuscript in a single file (with author names, tables, figures, etc.). The figures and tables should be placed at their places. The Reference section should be formated as specified in the Manuscript style section. The submissions that do not respect these things will be desk rejected.

After submission all articles are evaluated by the Editorial Office team. In an effort to streamline the reviewing process, some articles may be immediately desk rejected, if they are considered to be out of the journal's scope or otherwise unfit for consideration. Articles which pass the initial evaluation will be sent out for external review. In 2-3 days, the authors will receive an acknowledgement of status of their article (if the article was sent for review or was desk rejected). If the author doesn't receive a response in 3 working days, this means that something happened and the submission hasn't been received.

Following the brief editorial review to determinate the manuscript’s appropriateness for TERUM, each manuscript will be blind reviewed by two reviewers. The review process will take approximately 3 months. The reviewers will evaluate the submitted papers against the following checkpoints:
