The Journal of Building Performance Simulation (JBPS) aims to make a substantial and lasting contribution to the international building community by supporting our authors and the high-quality, original research they submit. The journal also offers a forum for original review papers and researched case studies We welcome building performance simulation contributions that explore the following topics related to buildings and communities: -Theoretical aspects related to modelling and simulating the physical processes (thermal, air flow, moisture, lighting, acoustics). -Theoretical aspects related to modelling and simulating conventional and innovative energy conversion, storage, distribution, and control systems. -Theoretical aspects related to occupants, weather data, and other boundary conditions. -Methods and algorithms for optimizing the performance of buildings and communities and the systems which service them, including interaction with the electrical grid. -Uncertainty, sensitivity analysis, and calibration. -Methods and algorithms for validating models and for verifying solution methods and tools. -Development and validation of controls-oriented models that are appropriate for model predictive control and/or automated fault detection and diagnostics. -Techniques for educating and training tool users. -Software development techniques and interoperability issues with direct applicability to building performance simulation. -Case studies involving the application of building performance simulation for any stage of the design, construction, commissioning, operation, or management of buildings and the systems which service them are welcomed if they include validation or aspects that make a novel contribution to the knowledge base.

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

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

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
