A LIFE FOR SCIENCE: RONAN PADDISON (1945-2019)
Professor Ronan Paddison, co-editor of the Journal of Urban and Regional Analysis (JURA), died suddenly a few months ago on July 8, 2019. He departed at an age when he had sufficient energy to continue his life-long enthusiastic research and editorial duties. The latter included not just JURA, but also the highly regarded Urban Studies. This editorial work not only supported the diffusion of high quality knowledge. Shared and collaborative experiences with journals’ co-editors and contributors were also invaluable in pinpointing future research directions within both the geographical world and wider social or environmental regimes. However, we should not underestimate his on-going dedication to original research and contribution to knowledge.
