Brussels Studies is an online and open access scholarly journal on urban studies with widespread dissemination intended to promote research centred on Brussels-related issues, without discrimination as to discipline or language.

Brussels Studies offers researchers a specific channel for the presentation of research results concerning a subject related to the realities of Brussels which represent a significant issue for the city and its region.

Brussels Studies is intended for a community of scholars from multiple disciplines. The journal also seeks to support the intervention of research results in the public debate regarding Brussels. It makes a point of offering its readers articles – which are accessible to a non-specialised public – pertaining to important subjects studied and debated in the research world. Furthermore, Brussels Studies considers that jargon and unnecessary technical terms are also detrimental to interdisciplinary exchanges.

All academic disciplines and subject areas will be accepted. Examples include: economics, employment, status of Brussels, institutional processes, political life, city planning, housing, social mobility, the environment, energy, sustainable development, demography, immigration, multiculturalism, health, quality of life, history, culture, heritage, tourism, etc.

The journal is managed by an interuniversity Editorial Board composed of scholars from Brussels and around the world. It contributes to defining the journal’s policies and is responsible for the academic rigour and quality.

Brussels Studies is a trilingual scholarly journal. It publishes in English (the lingua franca of research), French and Dutch (the Belgian national languages). It therefore allows authors to submit articles written in these languages and it provides the translation of accepted manuscripts each time so that are all available in the three languages. It aims to ensure maximum dissemination of the research works it publishes. In addition, this trilingualism promotes the understanding of studies regarding Brussels by all linguistic communities.

Brussels Studies is a scholarly journal available online only. It publishes approximately one new article every month in HTML and PDF format. It considers that there should be no barriers preventing access to the results of academic research. It therefore endorses the Open Access principles. The journal provides immediate open access to its content. It uses the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 (CC-BY) licence. Users have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles without restrictions, as long as they give credit to the original work. Furthermore, Brussels Studies does not charge APCs or submission charges of any kind (for translation or layout of graphics, figures, pictures, videos, etc.).

The journal is indexed by the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). It is also referenced in the European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS) and the Vlaams Academisch Bibliografisch Bestand voor de Sociale en Humane Wetenschappen (VABB-SHW), which indexes the peer-reviewed scholarly journals recognised in Flanders.

New articles are announced to those who receive the Newsletter. A press release is also sent to the press. See our Facebook page as well.

The journal also receives some financial support from the Fonds international Wernaers pour la recherche et la diffusion des connaissances, the Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique (FNRS) and the Fondation universitaire.
