Enquiry: A Journal for Architectural Research


Enquiry, an open access journal for architectural research, is an online journal (ISSN 2329-9339) published by the Board of the Architectural Research Centers Consortium (ARCC) as a source for information on research in architecture. The journal is double blind peer reviewed and invites submissions on a wide variety of topics addressing architectural knowledge including aspects of urban design, interior design, planning and landscape architecture.

Enquiry is indexed by the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, Worldcat, OAIster, and Google Scholar. Enquiry is a member of the Open Archive Initiative (OAI), archived by the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). Enquiry is a publisher member of CrossRef for stable DOI management, ensuring maximum exposure of our authors.

Potential authors need to register at the Journal's website in order to submit an article for consideration. Issues of the journal will occur once a year through a call with an July deadline. Journal calls are general but focused on research questions. Enquiry does not have an ideological agenda instead focusing on depth and quality of research associated with architectural domains of knowledge. This means all articles will need to have a clear research structure including strong and defensible positions, scope of the territory being addressed, clear methods and evidence of significance to adding to our current knowledge.
