This article analyzes which has been the evolution of the research in urban and regional science in Spain in the period 1991-2000 situating it in the international context.With this aim,we elaborate rankings of countries,authors and institutions in function of the publications carried out in a sample of nine top regional and urban international journals.The results show that the improvement in the international position of Spanish economic research found by other authors is also observed at the regional and urban level.In fact,this increase is motivated both by an increase of the publication of recognised authors and by the contribution of «new » authors.
