News Brief

ASHRAE is pleased to announce that Science and Technology for the Built Environment has been accepted for inclusion in Thomson Reuters Journal Citation ReportsTM (JCR), the recognized authority for evaluating journals. The meticulous, objective evaluation Journal Citation Reports offers to researchers, authors, publishers, and institutions sets it apart. The inclusion of Science and Technology for the Built Environment in Journal Citation Reports demonstrates our dedication to providing our community with the most relevant and influential research in science and technology related to the stationary and mobile built environment. The journal’s latest Impact Factor as HVAC&R Research is listed below.

 

Science & Technology for the Built EnvironmentScience and Technology for the Built Environment (formerly HVAC&R Research) is ASHRAE’s archival research publication, offering comprehensive reporting of original research in science and technology related to the stationary and mobile built environment, including indoor environmental quality, thermodynamic and energy system dynamics, materials properties, refrigerants, renewable and traditional energy systems and related processes and concepts, integrated built environmental system design approaches and tools, simulation approaches and algorithms, building enclosure assemblies, and systems for minimizing and regulating space heating and cooling modes. The journal features review articles that critically assess existing literature and point out future research directions.

Science and Technology for the Built Environment accepts for publication only works reporting on research that is original and of lasting value. This journal is published by Taylor & Francis Group on behalf of ASHRAE and included in the Web of Science® and Current Contents Connect® databases. Science and Technology for the Built Environment is available online and as a printed volume.

About Journal Citation Reports
Web of Science™ is the world's leading citation index with multidisciplinary content from over 12,000 of the top-tier international and regional journals. The editorial staff at Thomson Reuters reviews over 2500 journals each year. Of these, only about 10 to 12% of the most influential in the fields of science, social sciences, and arts and humanities are selected for indexing in the Web of Science. More than 11,000 of those elite publications are indexed in Journal Citation Reports. Factors considered during the evaluation and selection process include the journal's publishing standards, its editorial content, and citation data from Web of Science.
