Peer-Reviewed Journal

“Journal of Buildings and Sustainability” is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal. INSIGHTCORE will assign at least two experts who possess the same area of expertise and interest to review each submitted manuscript. The quality of the paper will be assessed by our reviewers in a timely-manner process in which they will provide their detailed and specific comments to the editorial-board.

Hereafter, the decision will be made by the Editor-in-Chief. If the manuscript needs revision, the paper will be pending until receives the requested modifications. The author will be given detailed information on how to revise the paper in a given period of time.

In case both blind reviewers accept the manuscript equally with no additional revision, then the paper will be published in our next issue. Last scenario, as INSIGHTCORE attempts to only accept and publish quality articles, manuscripts with low quality will be rejected and/ or denied, while we appreciate the author(s) who choose INSIGHTCORE.


Your paper will be published not only on our website but also will be submitted to other related scientific databases. This is how your paper could be easily accessed by your peers around the world. Meanwhile, “Journal of Buildings and Sustainability” is an open access source which means users do not need to pay to access your research. This makes it much more easier and accessible to anyone.
