SDAR Journal Call for Papers

Further to the enormous success of the inaugural SDAR Journal first published last year, papers are now being sought for consideration for inclusion in the 2012 edition, both printed and online versions.

The SDAR Journal is a joint collaboration between the CIBSE Ireland Region and DIT. The objective is to encourage and promote applied research in sustainable engineering design of the built environment and to disseminate the findings back into the industry.

Evidence-based evaluation is applied research and every project is an individual case study waiting for analysis. Publication of that applied research allows everyone to learn, to increase the quality of what they do, and to provide clients with enhanced value.

The quality of papers selected for inclusion in the SDAR Journal are judged not so much by the success of the particular project, but more by the insight produced by the findings, and the quality of evidence and analysis presented. There is as much, if not more, to learn from mistakes and the things that go wrong as there is from the things that go right.

All papers must be evidence-based, and they will be critically reviewed by engineering peers and engineering academics to ensure good quality and authentic findings.

We encourage professionals involved at all levels of the built environment/building services/electrical services/energy management/building management controls/facilities management and other associated sectors — be they senior working engineers/researchers, young engineers, post-graduates or undergraduate students — to present papers for consideration of inclusion.
