The International Journal of High-Rise Buildings is a quarterly Journal which aims to provide an international forum for a broad range of technical papers on tall building research and its applications. The Journal aims to contribute to solving or mitigating global and local problems by collecting new ideas and report about developments from around the world. The scope of the International Journal of High-Rise Buildings includes, but is not limited to, the areas of:

-    Architectural Planning & Design
-    Construction Technology
-    Energy Savings
-    MEP

About 80% of the content will consist of pure research and technical papers, while the remaining 20% will be case studies. The journal aims to reach out not only to researchers, but also to practicing professionals who could benefit from the published research results. Contributions on research findings which are suitable for practical applications are especially welcome.
