​​Welcome to the InPlanning platform

InPlanning is a digital platform for sharing information and publications on spatial planning. The platform is open source so you can read or download publications for free. You will find new PHD publications, books and articles of renowned scientists in spatial planning or related. The platform is funded by the individual planning schools in The Netherlands and Belgium, being the universities of Ghent, Groningen, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Nijmegen and Wageningen. Interested in publishing your book or PHD for low costs, including printed copies and (open source) e-book? Please contact us!

Ip boeken


The InPlanning platform is meant to grow steadily and will show more and more items and publications. Aside from all its digital advantages, InPlanning consists of a database of repositories that will sustain, maintain, organise and label all kinds of documents: Peer reviewed, professional, study and popular books, a whole set of independent planning journals, a PhD series, games and video's.

Why InPlanning?

InPlanning started as an initiative to fill in the gap commercial publishers were creating by showing a lack of interest in publications which were not written in English, while increasing their prices for products they were still willing to publish. As originally an AESOP initiative InPlanning allows member schools to maintain country related publications at low costs. These publications will also become visible on and assessable at the European level.

Publishing on demand

InPlanning offers you the possibility to publish your publication as a BOOK, including ISBN and DOI. It will be published digitally and in full colour, and if you wish we can also also combine it with a number of hard copies. These hard copies are books in print. The ebook will be published open source on the platform so it will be positioned at the centre of the planning community.
