Aims & Scope

ZeroBuild Journal is an international journal that publishes original research papers, review articles, and short communications related to zero energy buildings.

The Journal invites qualified research papers conveying robust, tested knowledge about Zero Energy Buildings from (but not limited to):

  • Architectural
  • Civil Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Energy Systems Engineering


The journal is focused on new and novel knowledge, verified with measurement and analysis, related to any topic affecting the energy performance of the buildings. 3 types of articles are welcome for this journal.

Research Articles: The results of novel scientific theoretical or practical research should be reported in a Research Article. The provided data should be adequate to reproduce the experiment with all of the authors' effects, measurement results, or theoretical calculations. The papers must contribute to scientific and practical theory and practice.

Review Articles: Authors describe the most recent scientific findings, technologies, and trends in the development of a given theory, technique, or applications gathered from published studies with their point of view in a Review Article. This type of article concludes with a long list of references that includes all of the important papers and studies in the field. Authors should present novel tables and novel figures in a Result and Discussion section for the review article.

Short Communications: Short Communication is an un-subdivided short article limited to 3000 words. The paper should include an abstract, main body, and references. There should be no more than six figures or tables in it. The abstract must be no more than 100 words long. It could focus on a specific component of the original and crucial question that needs to be published quickly, or on a new discovery that is predicted to have a big impact. Short Communications can cover a wide range of topics, including the discovery or development of novel materials, cutting-edge experiments and theory, simulation and modeling innovation, and mechanism explanation.
