How to publish in this journal


Journal of Asian Architecture and Building Engineering is a refereed international Open Access journal, serving researchers in academic and research organizations and all practitioners in the building sector. The journal is jointly-edited by the Architectural Institute of Japan (AIJ), the Architectural Institute of Korea (AIK), and the Architectural Society of China (ASC) and published bi-monthly. Asian academics and professionals have made efforts to find solutions to the themes derived from natural, geographical, socio-economical and cultural conditions in Asia. Their achievements have contributed to the evolution of research in the field of architecture and building engineering. For instance, achievements in structural engineering have contributed to the world by developing technology to assure safety of buildings in earthquake-prone areas. Asia has the largest share of the world's population with high densities in urban areas. It is a growing and the most energetic region in terms of building activities, which produces valuable empirical knowledge and lessons to architects and building engineers in Asia. It is quite significant to contribute to global architecture and building engineering by presenting the knowledge and lessons beyond linguistic barriers. By publishing the journal in English, it is expected that Asian wisdom and experience will be disseminated to the world. In the countries where these institutions are based, building professions can enjoy the collaborative and holistic approach because the three institutions distinctively possess the whole range of expertise relating to architecture and building engineering.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
