Aims & Scope

Building and Environment is an international journal that publishes original research papers and review articles related to building science and human interaction with the built environment.

The Journal invites research articles conveying robust, tested knowledge on:

•technologies and integrated systems for high performance buildings and cities
•thermal, acoustic, visual, air quality building science and human impacts
•tools for the design and decision-making community, including tested computational, economic, educational and policy tools.
•solutions for mitigating environmental impacts and achieving low carbon, sustainable built environments.

The Journal is focused on new knowledge, rigorously verified with measurement and analysis, related to the environmental performance of buildings in different scales, ranging from cities, communities, buildings, to building systems and assemblies.


Civil engineers, environmentalists, planners, architects and designers.
