A partially neighbor balanced design is a design in which for any fixed treatment, other treatments occur as neighbor λi times. This paper generates infinite series of one-dimensional partially neighbor balanced designs for v = n treatments. The blocks used in these designs are considered circular. Designs given here are partially balanced in terms of nearest neighbors and not necessarily in terms of variance. Binary and non-binary concepts have been used for the construction of designs. Theorem 1 generates binary generalized 2-neighbor designs and theorem 2 generates non-binary generalized 3-neighbor designs. These theorems generate designs for v = n treatments i.e., for odd and even number of treatments simultaneously. This concept remains relatively under-explored in the literature. The objective is to decrease error variance due to neighbor effect and reduce computational cost.
