About this Research Topic
It can be widely recognized that doctoral research into construction management has achieved numerous admirable works in research and development, for practical enhancements in the built environment. With regard to fundamental management theories – including the scientific management theory, the administrative management theory, the behavioral management theory, the management science theory, and the organizational environment theory – and advances in sciences and technologies, doctoral researchers have made huge efforts through pioneering research and pilot activities, to strive to novel solutions at the frontiers of construction management. Their research works have been published in journals and proceedings and as books and chapters. It is of the Topic Editors’ interest to offer a new opportunity for doctoral researchers in construction management, to present their research that can reflect advances and leadership.
The collection of research articles under this Research Topic aims to provide a unique platform for both doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, as well as their supervisors and collaborators, to present excellent research outcomes in the subject field of construction management. This Research Topic is therefore open to all academics and professionals who have been making the best endeavors for outstanding doctoral research in construction management. Issues under this Research Topic should relate to all theoretical and practical developments of construction management. An annual collection of published articles under this Research Topic will help to form an ebook series on doctoral research in construction management, to stimulate discovery and innovation.
This Research Topic is established in the Construction Management section of the international journal Frontiers in Built Environment (Electronic ISSN: 2297-3362) in January 2020. The editors would like to invite all doctoral and postdoctoral researchers as well as their supervisors and collaborators to participate in this initiative in the process to advance research into construction management at Frontiers.
Articles published within this collection are eligible for the Frontiers - Construction Management - Best Doctoral Research Award. The winner of this award, as adjudicated by Frontiers and the Guest Editors of this collection, will receive a certificate and a prize equivalent to about 2000 US$ in the form of a full waiver for a free Open Access publication in Frontiers in Built Environment.
This Research Topic is supported by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), which is the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership. The best article/s published under this Research Topic will receive a certificate for the 'CIOB Award for the Best Doctoral Research in Construction Management - Frontiers in Built Environment'.
