After seven years of partnership with Taylor & Francis in co-publishing of Journal of Architecture and Urbanism, we are proud to announce that from 2018 Journal of Architecture and Urbanism will be published by VGTU Press as an Open Access journal. All future articles will be published under a CC-BY 4.0 licence. All published papers are expected to be uploaded into the new journal system by the end of 2018 and will be accessible under the same CC-BY 4.0 licence. In the meantime you can find the journal archive on the Taylor & Francis platform http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/ttpa20

Currently, we are still in the process of improving our new journal system by uploading archives, and implementing tools to make the publishing process more effective. Such major changes require a lot of work and the VGTU Press team is dedicated to do their best through the transition period. Therefore, we appreciate your patience during this period, and we would be grateful for any feedback that will help improve the new system - to send your comments please e-mail eleidyba@vgtu.lt

We are confident that publishing the journal Open Access will increase its impact and reach, and we encourage all authors to submit their papers to Journal of Architecture and Urbanism.
