Aim & Scope
The purpose of the Journal of Green Building is to present the very best peer-reviewed research for the sustainable built environment at the building, community, neighborhood and urban scale. As such, the journal’s coverage includes green building design and construction, community and urban planning, green building policy and developmental studies, building engineering and technological innovation, facilities management, building information modeling, occupant behavior and sustainable landscape development. The Journal of Green Building recognizes the essential role that the built environment plays in reaching carbon neutrality and carbon reduction targets as set by the United Nations and by more local and country-specific development planning agencies. In addition to carbon mitigation, the Journal of Green Building will focus on all related efforts to create a more sustainable built environment that mitigates and eliminates any potentially deleterious effects on the natural environment. The Research section of the Journal of Green Building publishes peer-reviewed articles in the fields of architecture, urban and community planning, building science, engineering, public policy, economics, construction and facilities management, landscape architecture, human behavior, smart buildings and infrastructure and all disciplines related to the sustainable built environment. In addition, the Journal of Green Building publishes applied articles under the headings of New Directions in Teaching and Research, which publishes guidance from teachers and researchers on incorporating innovative sustainable learning into the curriculum or the likely directions of future research, and Campus Sustainability, which publishes articles from academic programs dedicated to greening the university campus and that especially involve student-led initiatives.
