• International Journal of High-Rise Buildings(IJHRB)

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is the world's leading resource for professionals focused on the design and construction of tall buildings and future cities. A not-for-profit organization based at the Illinois Institute of Technology, the group facilitates the exchange of the latest knowledge available on tall buildings around the world through events, publications and its extensive network of international representatives.

The Journal, the first of its kind, provides an important forum for a broad range of technical papers on tall building research and its applications. The Journal aims to contribute to solving or mitigating global and local problems by collecting new ideas and reports about developments from around the world.

The International Journal of High Rise Buildings will be a valuable tool for researchers, professionals and students and involved in engineering, architectural planning and design, construction technology, structural engineering, energy and sustainability issues, among others.


The Best Paper among the papers published during the past five years in the International Journal of High-rise Buildings (IJHRB) will be chosen and awarded every year, beginning from the year 2020.

  • The five most-cited papers published in the IJHRB during 2015-2019, according to Google Scholar, will be nominated for the Best Paper Award of 2020.
