Building Research & Information Calls for Abstracts for ‘Building Information’ Special Issue


Building Research & Information is calling for abstracts for a special issue titled: ‘Using building information: Organizational and policy implications of the digitization of buildings’. The deadline for abstracts is 1 March 2016.

This should be interesting to all active BIM researchers. The aim of this special issue is to examine the consequences of using building information across the life cycle of buildings.

Building Research & Information is one of the leading journals in AEC research. It is not unusual for journals to do special issues on Building Information Modelling and the digitisation of the construction industry, as the industry is going through significant change and research interest is high.

The timetable for submissions is as follows:

Deadline for abstract submission: 1 March 2016

Abstracts selected / agreed with editors / authors notified: 15 March 2016

Full paper due: 6 July 2016

Decision with referee comments: 26 September 2016
