Aims and Scope: Journal of Building Pathology and Rehabilitation

The journal covers, but is not limited to, the following topics:
- Hygrothermal behaviour of buildings
- Structural pathologies: stone, wood, mortar and concrete pathologies
- Diagnosis techniques: diagnostic methodological approach, traditional and innovative techniques, non-destructive methodologies
- Building pathology vs. Durability
- Asset and maintenance management: costs resulting from poor quality, maintenance and its deterioration
- Rehabilitation of the constructed heritage: strategies and incentives, diagnostic and design methodologies, the appropriately of existing regulations for rehabilitation, restoration of public spaces, adaptive rehabilitation, rehabilitation technologies
- Energy efficiency
- Building materials: ecology, nanotechnology and recent trends
- Applications and limitations of novel building technologies
- Case studies
- Building performance simulation.

The Journal of Building Pathology and Rehabilitation is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes original, high quality, peer-reviewed research papers and review articles dealing with construction pathology and building rehabilitation. This Journal provides a unique international and interdisciplinary forum for new research findings on the building pathology, conservation and durability of historic buildings, quality of life and durability of the building envelope, materials and their suitability, modelling.
Of particular interest are papers that reflect recent developments and applications of rehabilitation of monumental heritage and historic buildings, architecture and all those responsible for the appraisal and refurbishment of buildings.
