The First CUCS Research Publications, 1968

The research paper series was initiated with several purposes in mind.

First, the newly established Centre needed a formal outlet for the results flowing from its first major research project - the Bell Telephone sponsored study on the urban futures of Central Canada (southern Ontario and southern Quebec). Bell was particularly interested in improving its ability to forecast where future urban development would take place between 1966 and 2001 as a basis for its decisions on where to add infrastructure capacity. It was an ideal project for the Centre in that it provided both substantial resources and student support, and the flexibility to pursue research avenues that the project coordinators rather than the company thought were important.

Second, the research paper format permitted the rapid release and inexpensive dissemination of research results. The turnaround time for journal articles, and certainly for books, was considered too long. Three edited books based on the Bell project were subsequently published, but only some years later.

Third, the research series provided an immediate publication outlet for graduate student research on the project; many of these students have gone on to distinguished careers in academic and professional fields.

And fourth, the numbered release of papers in a recognized series facilitated the ordering, classification and tracking of otherwise disconnected research reports by libraries and other depositories. - Larry S. Bourne, 2004
