We are delighted to announce a change of title for Structural Survey – as from 1st January 2017 Structural Survey will become the International Journal of Building Pathology and Adaptation. This exciting new title follows a long process of consultation and market research and a desire to strengthen the international appeal of the journal.
The new title retains the main core themes and aims of the journal, whilst at the same time gives greater prominence to the challenges associated with the adaptation of existing buildings in response to rapid technological developments, a changing climate and developing societal demands. This of course is in the context of an increasingly global society and a construction sector where solutions need to be developed that are internationally rigorous and informed by world class research. The change to the title will also be reflected in changes to the Aims and Scope which will be updated in December 2016 and we will be inviting submissions in line with these changes.
The launch of the new title coincides with the excellent news that the journal has been accepted for inclusion in the Thomson Reuters’ Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), and reflects our plans to pursue recognition by the SSCI or SCI collections in the very near future.

Structural Survey: Journal of Building Pathology and Refurbishment publishes findings on contemporary and original research in building pathology and building forensics, refurbishment and adaptation. This includes all related areas towards supporting more sustainable and resilient futures. The journal aims to publish rigorous research articles, case studies and reviews concerning innovative investigations on topics related to technical, managerial and legal issues affecting land, property and construction. Particular emphasis is placed on the emerging environmental challenges associated with sustaining the modern built environment.
Structural Survey: Journal of Building Pathology and Refurbishment is a CIB-encouraged journal.
The journal by nature has a broad scope, encompassing all residential, commercial, retail, industrial, leisure, education and health sectors, in the context of the design, operation, maintenance and adaptation of buildings.
The applied and contemporary focus of the journal's content means it is an invaluable resource for researchers and academics as well as practitioners in the industry wishing to keep abreast of current and international developments. Expert building technologists need to be aware of emerging innovative solutions and rapidly developing applications so that they can provide appropriate and professional advice to their clients.
