Aims and Scope

Archnet-IJAR aims at establishing a bridge between theory and practice in these fields. The journal acts as a platform that reports on the latest research findings for examining buildings and urban environments and debates innovative approaches for creating responsive environments. Archnet-IJAR is truly international and aims at strengthening ties between scholars, academics, and practitioners from the global north and the global south with contributors and readers reaching across the boundaries of cultures and geographies. Archnet-IJAR publishes articles in two broad areas that address a wide range of topics and scales: Architectural and Design Research (involves a range of topics that include architectural pedagogy and design studio teaching practices; architectural and sustainable design; design methods and architectural theories; architectural criticism; design and project programming; environment-behaviour studies; application of information technologies; post occupancy and facility performance evaluation; and social and cultural factors in design); Cities and Urban Research (involves a range of topics that include governance and political factors contributing to the shaping of communities, cities and urban regions; community planning; sustainable urban conservation; environmental planning and eco development; housing policy; planning, and design; new urbanism; everyday urbanism; sustainable development; urban design assessment; and urban studies). Archnet-IJAR was launched in March 2007 as part of Archnet, considered to be the most comprehensive digital platform for architects, planners, urban designers, interior designers, landscape architects, and scholars working in these fields, developed at the MIT School of Architecture and Planning in close co-operation with the Aga Khan Documentation Centre (AKDC) of MIT Libraries. Professor Ashraf M. Salama has been leading Archnet-IJAR since its inception. In 2018, Archnet-IJAR was acquired by Emerald in order to foster its exposure and international appeal while enhancing its global presence.
