STBE

ASHRAE members now have free online access to Science and Technology for the Built Environment using their existing ASHRAE member login information. STBE 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 also 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.

ASHRAE members’ access to STBE will benefit firms, contractors, and other researchers through increased research transparency and access to cutting-edge technical information and case studies.

    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 Clarivate Analytics 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.
