Carolina Planning bridges planning practice and education through the careful editorial oversight of graduate planning students. The Journal’s contribution to the planning field cannot be overstated. In its over thirty-five years of publication, Carolina Planning (ISSN: 0164-0070) has published more than 500 original articles, interviews, book reviews, and commentary pieces by academics, practitioners, and planning students. This body of work encompasses diverse areas and is presented through a rich variety of viewpoints and professional experience from writers during some of the most formative years of the planning profession.

The Carolina Digital Repository maintains a complete electronic collection of Carolina Planning, although the current issue is held back each year. The Library of Congress, UNC Libraries, and The North Carolina Collection each maintain a complete print set in their serials collections. Print copies of back issues are available for the public to purchase as indicated in the table below:
