Scope/Description:

Frontiers in Built Environment publishes rigorously peerreviewed research encompassing the engineering of buildings sustainable cities and urban spaces. Field Chief Editor Izuru Takewaki at Kyoto University is supported by an outstanding Editorial Board of international experts. This multidisciplinary openaccess journal is at the forefront of disseminating and communicating scientific knowledge and impactful discoveries to researchers engineers and the public worldwide.The modern society and cities are mostly vulnerable to extreme natural disasters caused by earthquakes strong winds and other unexpected disturbances and are also faced with global climate change issues. In order to overcome such unavoidable issues smart methodologies for designing protecting and upgrading built environments including infrastructures and buildings are strongly desired recently. However the perfect defense and protection may be difficult because of cost problems and unexpected phenomena of natural and manmade disasters. Under these circumstances the concept of Resilient Cities and Society plays an important role. The resilience is utilized in various fields including society community and multidisciplinary engineering. It implies the ability or capability to recover from certain damaged states and maintain its function or the toughness for damage expected against various disturbances.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?


III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

H-Index

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
