How to publish in this journal


Building Simulation:An International Journal publishes original, high quality, peer-reviewed research papers and review articles dealing with modeling and simulation of buildings including their systems. Paper submission is solicited on: Theoretical and numerical modeling of building physics including heat and mass (moisture, air pollutants) transfer, air movement, architectural lighting and sound/vibration control systems. Simulation of performance of energy supply systems including heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, renewable energy systems, thermal storage, district heating and cooling, combined heating and power systems. Modeling health, productivity, thermal comfort of humans, fire/smoke and emergency control systems, cold/hot water supply systems, sewage systems. Simulation of building chemistry. Advances in modeling including optimization, product modeling, fault detection and diagnostics, inverse models. Advances in software interoperability, validation and calibration techniques. Simulation tools for sustainable buildings and experiences on teaching building simulation. All these topics may be addressed from urban scale to microscopic scale, and for different phases during the building life cycle; from schematic design, to detailed design to construction, commissioning, operation, control and maintenance of new and existing building.

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
