Construction Management and Economics Contribute to our special issue on BIM Management and Policy

Construction Management and Economics

In this special issue, we want to address the impact of management elements, rather than the technology aspects, on the performance of BIM projects. Advancements in software and hardware technologies have been the main drivers of deployment and development of building information modeling (BIM). However, we have witnessed that the outcomes of projects differ greatly depending on how these technologies are used.

Are you currently looking at any of the non-technology issues that impact the successful implementation of BIM? Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished submissions in the following topics with a quantitative and in-depth analysis of the impact on the performance of a BIM project.

Author guidelines

Extended abstracts should not exceed 1000 words possibly with a figure or a table that can illustrate key findings. Full papers should normally be 4,000-10,000 words in length. Particularly, the authors are encouraged to articulate the contributions of their work to both the academia and the industry.

All submissions including extended abstracts will be managed electronically. Further guidance and information for authors can be found at the following web address:
