Online journal

The international network of the UNESCO Chair “Earthen Architecture, construction cultures and sustainable development”, in connection with the Ibero-American network PROTERRA, aims to launch a scientific journal on earthen architecture that will be available on the respective websites of CRAterre-ENSAG and PROTERRA.

Preliminary discussions for this project were held during a meeting of PROTERRA’s Scientific Board, held during the 8th SIACOT in Tucuman, Argentina, in June 2009. It is hoped that an international Selection committee, made up of high-ranking international scientists (to be identified), as well as a Scientific editorial committee for this journal will be in place by the end of 2010.

This project to develop an online scientific journal responds to the expectations of teachers and researchers who have, up until now, found it difficult to publish their research, as they have had little access to “class A” journals.
