The Journal of Information Technology in Construction (ITcon) is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal on the use of IT in architecture and civil engineering. ITcon articles are submitted and published electronically only. ITcon is an Open Access journal and its articles can freely and with no charge be read by anybody who has an Internet connection. The copyright of the articles remains with the authors.
The aim is to report on academic research and innovative industrial development work concerning the application of information technology throughout the life-cycle of the design, construction and occupancy of buildings and related facilities. The focus is on presenting research results dealing with or having relevance across disciplines and/or life-cycle stages.

The operation of the journal is a voluntary effort combining forces of a global community of researchers in its field, and has its origins in the working commission W078 (Information Technology for Construction) of the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB), which latter has also been the official publisher of the journal since 2005 (The publisher was earlier the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden). In 2005 the IT-AEC journal merged with ITcon, further strengthening the journal’s base of editors and reviewers. ITcon is indexed in the DOAR, ICONDA and the ITC Digital Library, and its articles are highly visible in for instance Google Scholar.
