Recently the scope of the journal has been broadened, in response to readers' interests- and as a result of the shift in focus of the leading edge building research organizations. Formerly titled Journal of Thermal Envelope and Building Science, the vision of the JBP is to facilitate the integration and implementation of a scientific approach in building physics with the various domains of building performance.
Buildings have enormous impact on global environment, renewable and non-renewable resources and quality of life and durability of the building envelope is one of the critical elements deciding upon the sustainability of built environment. The journal's expanded coverage will stress durability and long-term performance of building envelope systems. Specific stress is placed on environmental aspects and thermal protection of materials, elements and components used construction.
Journal of Building Physics will also remain the publishing platform of the CIB W040 committee on “Heat and Moisture Transfer in Buildings”.
