IJSC aims at publishing original scientific contributes in the field of sustainable construction and built environment.
Although there is already a number of highly prestigious Journals and publications on building construction, IJSC core and innovative subject is the thematic of building sustainability beyond environmental issues, thus bridging also with cultural, social and economic aspects of sustainable development.
The conceptual basis upon which this Journal stands is precisely that sustainability in building construction is a result of relationships between a complex set of variables, the analysis of which requires complementary approaches.
Within this focus, IJSC seeks for original contributions from academics, scholars and researchers who pursue a broad perspective on the subject, placing heritage and sustainability at the core of their research.
Normally the IJSC will publish two issues each year but special issues may also be published as a result of workshops or seminars organised in the specific field of sustainable construction. Thematic issues may also be published, under a focused editorial orientation.
