Focus and Scope

Local Engineering Journal of Local Architecture and Civil Engineering is dedicated to disseminating scholarly research and practical applications in the fields of architecture and civil engineering with a particular emphasis on local and regional perspectives. Our goal is to foster the exchange of knowledge that enhances the understanding and development of local architectural practices and civil engineering solutions that address unique environmental, cultural, and socio-economic challenges.

Areas of Focus

  1. Local Architectural Practices:

    • Traditional and vernacular architecture.
    • Sustainable architectural design tailored to local climates and resources.
    • Preservation and restoration of historical buildings.
    • Integration of modern technologies with local building techniques.
  2. Civil Engineering Solutions:

    • Infrastructure development in rural and urban settings.
    • Innovative materials and construction methods adapted to local conditions.
    • Environmental impact assessments and eco-friendly engineering practices.
    • Disaster-resilient design and construction in areas prone to natural hazards.
  3. Urban and Regional Planning:

    • Strategies for sustainable urban growth and development.
    • Community-based planning and participatory design processes.
    • Transportation planning and the development of local public transit systems.
    • Land use management and policy implications.
  4. Socio-Economic and Cultural Aspects:

    • The role of architecture and engineering in community development.
    • Socio-cultural influences on design and construction practices.
    • Economic impacts of local engineering projects.
    • Case studies of successful local engineering initiatives.
  5. Technological Advancements:

    • Application of new technologies in local architecture and engineering.
    • Smart city concepts and their implementation in local contexts.
    • Innovations in building information modeling (BIM) and geographic information systems (GIS).


The journal welcomes contributions in the form of original research articles, review papers, case studies, technical notes, and book reviews. Submissions should provide significant insights and practical implications for practitioners, researchers, and policymakers. We particularly encourage interdisciplinary studies and those that offer comparative analysis between different regions.

Local Engineering Journal of Local Architecture and Civil Engineering seeks to bridge the gap between theory and practice, providing a platform for the sharing of knowledge that supports the advancement of architecture and civil engineering in local contexts globally.
