Malakzadeh, Ali, Yigitcanlar, Tan, Bunker, Jonathan M., & Dur , Fatih (2010) Evaluation of accessibility for knowledge-based cities. In Yigitcanlar, Tan, Yates, Peter, & Kunzmann, Klaus (Eds.) Proceedings of The 3rd Knowledge Cities World Summit : From Theory to Practice, World Capital Institute, City of Melbourne and Office of Knowledge Capital, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Vic, pp. 696-711.
Purpose: The purpose of the paper is to develop a framework for evaluation of accessibility for knowledge based cities. ----- -----
Design/methodology/approach: This approach notifies common mistakes and problems in accessibility assessment for knowledge cities. ----- -----
Originality/value: Accessibility plays a key role in transport sustainability and recognizes the crucial links between transport and sustainable goals like air quality, environmental resource consumption & social equity. In knowledge cities, accessibility has significant effects on quality of life and social equity by improving the mobility of people and goods. Accessibility also influences patterns of growth and economic health by providing access to land. Accessibility is not only one of the components of knowledge cities but also affects other elements of knowledge cities directly or indirectly. ----- -----
Practical implications: The outcomes of the application will be helpful for developing particular methodologies for evaluating knowledge cities. On other words, this methodology attempts to develop an assessment procedure for examining accessibility of knowledge-based cities.
