The Journal

ABOUT NJAR

The Nordic Journal of Architectural Research (NJAR) is the journal of NAF/NAR.

NJAR is ranked at international top level, not only in Denmark and Norway but also in Finland, making it, to date, the only scientific journal in architectural research in the Nordic countries ranked at the prestigious level 2.

NJAR represents a pluralist approach to research and publishes original academic contributions within architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture. The journal publishes scientific papers by a double-blind scholarly peer review system. Two senior researchers review every paper. All reviewers are recognised researchers. Scientific reviewers must hold a PhD. Reviewers who do not hold a PhD are only used in very exceptional cases.

The journal supports academic freedom and scientific independence. Submitted papers must not have been published or submitted for publication in another forum.

From 2012 NJAR (ISSN: 1893-5281) is published by SINTEF Academic Press, P O Box 124 Blindern, NO-0314, Norway.
