In 2013 the Institute prepared the first edition of an online journal Student Pleanáil along with the Student Pleanáil Awards. This is to disseminate outstanding original essays, papers, literature reviews, theses or articles by a third level student or a group of students in an accredited Planning School that contribute to and advance the field of planning.
Gerry Walker, an honorary member and past president of the Irish Planning Institute and former Head of Planning at An Foras Forbartha and Head of School of Planning and Architecture DIT passed away in 2013. In 2014 Council agreed to name the Student Pleanáil award in his honour to recognise his contribution to planning research and education.
