Aim & Scope

NZAAR International Event Series on Natural and Built Environment, Cities, Sustainability and Advanced Engineering is a platform to encourage interdisciplinary and industry-driven collaborations among practitioners and academicians towards publishing high quality research articles related to the future of buildings, urban built environments and cities. NZAAR publication attempts to maintain a strong focus on design, development, delivery and critical investigation of practical solutions and theoretical contemplations towards improving the future of built environments with continuous linkage to sustainability agendas. Ranging from engineering design prototypes to buildings, communities and cities, it is targeted to explore and strengthen the neglected linkages between small-scaled and large-scaled components of urban built environments for enhancing productivity, improving sustainability and achieving more liveable environments. NZAAR international event series invites research publications with solid knowledge and rigorously evaluated analytical phases related to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of our natural and built environments to push the existing boundaries and defining cutting-edge research solutions for our urban future.

Publication Ethics

NZAAR follows COPE’s code of conduct for publishers (Core Practices).

COPE's role is to assist editors of scholarly journals and publishers/owners - as well as other parties, such as institutions and funders, albeit less directly - in their endeavour to preserve and promote the integrity of the scholarly record through policies and practices that reflect the current best principles of transparency and integrity. COPE’s new recommendations are intended to reflect these aims, in a practical way. COPE has therefore reviewed the Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Editors and Code of Conduct for Journal Publishers and consolidated them into one, much shorter, document entitled “Core Practices”.
