Deadline for abstract submission: 07 November 2019

Buildings and Cities Journal

The Reynolds Symposium has broadened questions of how can education and training be rapidly changed to ensure the creation of zero-carbon built environments? How can this transition be implemented successfully? What positive examples and models can be drawn upon or adapted? Papers in this special issue will address key questions and offer solutions in these key areas: Mainstreaming, Policy and Leadership, Transitioning, Teaching, Upskilling, and Certification.

You are invited to submit an abstract for a journal paper in this special issue of Buildings & Cities. In the first instance, please send a 500-word (maximum) abstract defining the scope, methods, and results to editor Richard Lorch <richard@rlorch.net> by 07 November 2019. The initial submission must include:

  • the author’s and all co-author’s names, affiliations and contact details
  • the question(s) in this Call for Papers that the abstract and intended paper address
  • the abstract (300–500 words maximum)

Abstracts will be reviewed by the editors to ensure a varied, yet integrated selection of papers around the topic of the special issue. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper (6000–7500 words), which will be subject to a double-blind review process.
