Journal history

Biblioteka Regionalisty, prepared by the employees of the Department of Spatial Economy and Local Government Administration of Wroclaw University of Economics and Business, is a platform for the exchange of knowledge and dissemination of research results conducted in the field of regional development. The topics of the journal cover such aspects as: regional policy, spatial development with the special attention paid to local and regional development issues, metropolisation in the era of knowledge-based economy, finance of local government units, safety in space, as well as creativity and innovation of regional economy.

The initiative to publish the yearbook of Biblioteka Regionalisty was undertaken in 2005. Since then the journal has been published regularly in a characteristic binding and with interesting content. It should be emphasised that the journal is universal in terms of its authors “scientific status”. Publications are written both by recognised professors as well as young research workers. It should also be mentioned that the current proposal is a continuation of the previous publishing series under the name of Biblioteka Regionalistyki, which first issue was published in 2001.
