The quarterly journal “Budownictwo i Architektura” has been issued since 2007. Initially (2007-2012) a semi-yearly publication, it became a quarterly in 2013. The articles are published in English and Polish, in an electronic version – posted on the journal’s website in accordance with the publishing schedule; and in a paper version – printed at the end of the year, i.e. after having published four issues in a given year. Electronic versions of the journal are archived in repositories (Lublin University of Technology Library, BazTech and PBN/POL-on), while the printed version is archived in the National Library of Poland in Warsaw and the Jagiellonian Library in Cracow.
Since 2017, each publication has been assigned a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number, distributed by DataCite and Crossref organisations.
The journal publishes original scientific works concerning civil engineering and architecture, but also articles focusing on local problems, characteristic for the regions of Middle-Eastern Europe (read more about journal’s aims and scope in the Journal policies).
