International Journal of Construction Education and Research
Aims and Scope

The International Journal of Construction Education and Research is a respected international refereed journal that publishes original works addressing cutting edge, global issues in construction. The journal recognizes scholarly work in the areas of construction education and construction research by preserving and disseminating research (both quantitative and qualitative). The journal seeks original manuscripts that contribute to the understanding of issues and topics associated with construction education and the construction industry. The scope of the journal embraces pedagogical and industry content through a broad spectrum of construction-related topics including but not limited to:

  • Materials and methods
  • Mechanical and electrical systems
  • Estimating
  • Sustainability
  • Contracts, construction law, and dispute resolution
  • Planning, decision-making, and risk management
  • Labor, equipment, and productivity
  • Specialty subcontracting
  • Workforce development
  • Scheduling
  • Project management
  • International construction and globalization
  • Alternative delivery methods
  • Procurement and project logistics
  • Building and information technology
  • Case studies
  • Automation and robotics


While research manuscripts are encouraged, another aim of the Journal is to embrace those manuscripts that may be outside of traditional research formats. Naturally, problem statements, literature reviews, and methodologies and analyses resulting in contributions to the existing body of knowledge are required of all submissions. On occasion, special submissions may be solicited on a specific and relevant topic.

The Journal supports the mission of the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC), a professional association comprised of about 150 universities and colleges. The ASC encourages the sharing of ideas and knowledge and promotes excellence in curricula, teaching, research and service relating to the construction industry.

The International Journal of Construction Education and Research replaced the Journal of Construction Education which was founded in 1996.

Peer Review Policy:

All manuscripts in this journal have undergone initial editor screening, and editorial office screening, followed by blind peer reviews.
