TAD Journal is a peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to the advancement of scholarship in the field of building technology and its translation, integration, and impact on architecture and design.
Technology | Architecture + Design is pleased to welcome five new members to the Editorial Board: Timothy Adekunle of University of Hartford, Lola Ben-Alon of Columbia University, Matan Mayer of IE University, David Newton of University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and Theodora Vardouli of McGill University. Each member brings significant expertise and experience to advancing the mission of TAD.
TAD is now entering its fifth year of publication and is growing in its manuscript volume and readership. It is also being added to the most competitive journal indexes, such as Web of Science and Scopus. The TAD Editorial Board is a highly collaborative group that involves all of its members in various aspects of the peer review and publication process. TAD continues to demonstrate a commitment to rigorous peer review as well as a highly reflective editorial process that attends to TAD’s role in advancing research and scholarship in the discipline. One of TAD’s great strengths is that it provides opportunities for a wide range of research and scholarly approaches, using the intersection of technology and design as the point of departure.
