AJAR is an online Open Access peer-reviewed journal for all kinds of design research and scholarly research within the architectural field, and has been set up by the Architectural Research European Network Association (ARENA) network. It welcomes the submission of essays by doctoral students and younger researchers as well as by established architects and academics. Content for the journal is organised under 4 sections: Design, Technology, Practice, Humanities.
Since the launch of AJAR back in April 2016, we have been steadily publishing a range of top-quality essays on diverse subjects from across the wide field of architecture. In all instances we employ the highest standards of peer-reviewing, meaning indeed that as a consequence our acceptance rate is only around 10% of the essays submitted to us. Our reader statistics continue to be extremely positive, with well over 23,000 individual article views and more than 3,000 article downloads to date. Since we are listed in Google Scholar and are included in the Directory of Open Access Journals, the contents of AJAR are fully indexed and searchable online.

The Editors for ARENA Journal of Architectural Research (AJAR) welcome all submissions on any subject related to the field of architecture, ranging from Design to Technology to Practice to Humanities. AJAR is published as one continuous online issue per year, with rapid publication as soon as articles are ready, thus ensuring authors do not experience unnecessary delay. All submissions are subjected to double blind peer-review, which has been shown to decrease gender bias in publication. There is no processing charge at all for contributors, meaning that AJAR is free and open access for authors as well as readers.
We accept online submissions via our journal website. Full submission guidelines can be found here.
