The International Journal of the Constructed Environment publishes broad-ranging and interdisciplinary articles on human configurations of the environment and the interactions between the constructed, social, and natural environments. The journal brings together researchers, teachers, and practitioners. The resulting articles weave between the empirical and the theoretical, research and its application, the ideal and the pragmatic, and spaces that are in their orientations private, public, communal, or commercial.
As well as articles of a traditional scholarly type, this journal invites presentations of practice—including experimental forms of documentation and exegesis that can with equal validity be interrogated through a process of peer review. This might, for instance, take the form of a series of images and plans, with explanatory notes that articulate with other, significantly similar or different and explicitly referenced places, sites, or material objects.
We are working to change the way in which knowledge is produced, validated, and shared within member-based Research Networks.
Review scores are based on a clearly articulated rubric, and the result is a peer-review process that is scrupulously fair in its assessments, while at the same time offering carefully structured and constructive feedback that enhances the quality of the published article. Each year a top-ranked article from The International Journal of The Constructed Environment receives the International Award for Excellence.
We are committed to expanding the visibility, reach, and impact of research from The Constructed Environment Research Network.The International Journal of The Constructed Environment can be found in numerous databases, accessible via the libraries of institutional subscribers, and in the CG Scholar Bookstore for current Research Network Members.
We take seriously the “peer” of “peer review.” Decisions of what is published come from reviewers that are Members of the Research Network ensuring the knowledge is validated in horizontal social knowledge relations.
A publishing process that is without prejudice to institutional affiliation, stage in career, national origins, or disciplinary perspectives. If the article is excellent, and has been systematically and independently assessed as such, it will be published.
Authors and reviewers, as Research Network members, gain subscriber access to the journal collection ensuring that the product of their labor is also accessible to them.
Articles can also be made Hybrid Open Access if authors wish, at a rate that is fair, sustaining open knowledge while balancing the labor of author and publisher.
