AIA Journal | Arizona

AIA Arizona has started a peer reviewed journal and we need your help! Love writing? Read this…

What is the AIA Journal | Arizona? The AIA Journal is a peer review journal publication issued by AIA Arizona to the AIA community and to the general public. The Journal(s) will be comprise of a formulated hypothesis about a subject of the auhor(s) choosing with respect to architecture. The topics are subject, but not limited, to the following: professional practice, architectural technology, case studies, architectural design (urban, city, art, environment) and architecture in society – the role of architects.

Why the AIA Journal | Arizona? The AIA Journal was conceived after the AIA Arizona Town Hall meeting at which there was a sense and a need for a “platform” that would allow and encourage expression, discussion and rapport within the architecture community and the greater community in general.

How will it be implemented? The author(s) of the AIA Journal will be AIA Arizona members or a team of individuals with an AIA Arizona member as a team lead. The author(s) of the journal will submit the journal for peer review. If there are comments, the journal will be returned for editing and re-submitted. After the final review, the journal will be published via the AIA Arizona website as a PDF, as well as posted on for further viewing. Peer reviewers will be selected by the Journal Committee. The Journal Committee will be the governing body of the Journal.
