Journal of Building Performance Simulation (JBPS) is the official journal of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA). IBPSA is a non-profit international society of computational building performance simulation researchers, developers, practitioners and users, dedicated to improving the design, construction, operation and maintenance of new and existing buildings worldwide.
JBPS publishes articles of the highest quality that are original, cutting-edge, well-researched and of significance to the international community. The journal also offers a forum for original review papers and researched case studies.
The Journal embraces research, technology and tool development related to building performance modelling and simulation, as well as their applications to design, operation and management of the built environment. This includes modelling and simulation aspects of building performance in relation to other research areas such as building physics, environmental engineering, mechanical engineering, control engineering, facility management, architecture, ergonomics, psychology, physiology, computational engineering, information technology and education. The scope of topics includes the following:
Theoretical aspects of building performance modelling and simulation.
Methodology and application of building performance simulation for any stage of design, construction, commissioning, operation or management of buildings and the systems which service them.
Uncertainty, sensitivity analysis, calibration, and optimization.
Methods and algorithms for performance optimization of building and the systems which service them.
Methods and algorithms for software design, validation, verification and solution methods.
All articles submitted to JBPS are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and if found suitable for further consideration, enter peer review by independent, anonymous, expert referees. The Journal operates double-blind peer review and all submissions are to be made online using the JBPS ScholarOne site
