Vol. 1 No. 1 (2010): Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management (JAPCM)
It is observed that in the specialized fields of Architecture, Planning, Landscape Architecture, Quantity Surveying, Building Technology And Engineering, Applied Arts And Design, Construction Management and others but related to the built environment there is a general lack of scholarly views and research reports, either collectively or individually, that are closest to Malaysia, Asia and the Islamic perspectives.
Consequently, the Kulliyyah of Architecture and Environmental Design at the International Islamic University Malaysia (KAED, IIUM) considers it to be timely and appropriate for a journal i.e. Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management (JAPCM) to be established.
The key aim of JAPCM is therefore to provide a platform for such 'gap' in the body of knowledge to be addressed.
