EDG Journal has been expanding since 1995. It currently contains over 300 peer-reviewed papers on every aspect of environmental design for the built environment.

A note on our new filing system

In the past, EDG Journal was printed on paper; journal papers were categorised and came with filing instructions for binding in a folder.

Now that the journal is online, EDG is transitioning to a new filing system. Papers will be optimised for fast online search and retrieval. New papers will not be categorised as they were before (i.e. GEN, TEC etc) – they will simply be coded by issue number and author initials. E.g. EDG 65 AH.

While we manage this transition, older papers will continue to be filed under the old categories (GEN etc). Papers published from November 2010 will be found in ‘Recent Papers’.
