About the book

Landscape Architecture is a wide range of disciplines that cover landscape planning, landscape design, urban design, landscape methods and models, etc.. Landscape Architecture is the design of parks, squares, recreational areas where people spend most of their time in outdoor spaces. These areas create healthy, livable and sustainable spaces in cities. The arrangement of the landscape creates also the most demanded areas for the people. Landscape architecture should lead to an increase in healthy spaces, quality of life, and the arrangement of green areas. To ensure people's needs, landscape architecture is one of the most powerful implementations for outdoor space design and planning. That is one of the most important reasons to understand landscape planning and design to achieve a successful space arrangement. The theory of landscape architecture is one of the approaches to make more detail and forensic explanation for the field. This book project aims to be one of the main references in the field of landscape architecture implementations, design and planning approaches and also theoretical background.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
