Aims and scope of the African Journal of Built Environment Research

The African Journal of Built Environment Research is a peer-reviewed international journal and official journal of the West Africa Built Environment Research (WABER) Conference.

The aim of the African Journal of Built Environment Research is to provide a regional outlet for recording and disseminating current research which advances our scientific understanding of issues relating to the built environment on the African continent.

What kind of papers do we invite for submission to this journal? The simple answer is that we want good papers. A good paper forms a record of progress in research, adding to our collective understanding of the particular topic. Generally, papers should either develop or test some kind of theory. A paper that does neither will not add or contribute to the sum of our current knowledge and therefore will not fall into the category of the kind of research papers we aspire to publish. Therefore, the primary criteria for accepting papers for publication in this journal is that the paper must contribute new knowledge to what we already know.

The African Journal of Built Environment Research exists to publish original research articles relating to the built environment on the African continent.  The journal invites original research papers from authors in all academic disciplines linked with the built environment including the following academic fields or departments that can be found in our higher education institutions on the continent:

  • Architecture
  • Building and Construction Technology
  • Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • Construction Management
  • Construction Science
  • Estate Management / Real Estate
  • Project Management
  • Quantity Surveying / Construction Economics
  • Surveying and Geoinformatics
  • Urban and Regional Planning

Published issues of the journal will contain information on any forthcoming research conferences and scientific developments relating to built environment issues on the African continent and reviews of newly published books related to the built environment field in Africa.
