Nuno F. da Cruz, Do Young Oh and Nathalie Badaoui Choumar have authored an article in the journal Cities.
The article, titled 'The Metropolitan Scale' summarises the research undertaken in the LSE Cities project Metropolitan Indicators.

The database of 38 metropolitan indicators for 58 metropolitan territories is also available online.
