Some folks are putting together a peer-reviewed Journal of Green Building and have issued a call for papers for their inaugural issue. Their list of topics of interest is sort of educational in its own right:
· Indicators of sustainability for built facilities and infrastructure systems · Mathematical and systems modeling of facilities and infrastructure performance · Integrated design and facility life cycle methods and practices · Innovation and performance modeling for mechanical systems, building envelopes, lighting, and other key facility systems · Green building materials and structural innovations · Building science, energy performance, and indoor environmental quality issues · Alternative project delivery methods for green building projects · Information architectures for facilities data related to green building · Impacts of facilities on human performance · Life cycle analysis and assessment methodologies and models · Energy systems, conservation, and generation · Water, stormwater, and wastewater systems · Historic preservation and green building · The built environment as industrial ecosystem · Deconstruction methodologies and waste management innovations · Sustainability and security in facility and infrastructure design · Prevention and sustainable mitigation of mold and other building hazards · Barriers to sustainability implementation · Economics of green building and cost models/methods · Operational frameworks for sustainability implementation · Decision making and management of tradeoffs in green building projects · Research and education needs to support sustainability implementation · Emerging technologies for sustainable facilities & infrastructure
Unfortunately, the sub price is a hefty $129/ $389, with no mention made of any sort of Creative Commons licence or other arrangements for sharing this information in parts of the world where $389 is a big chunk of the average annual household income.
