This series provides a platform for the curation and dissemination of construction related research in or relevant to Developing Countries. This timely new series will contribute significantly to the existing body of knowledge and seek to address the perceived lack of a synchronised database for generating a better understanding of the issues surrounding construction in developing countries whilst proposing solutions to common problems. As such, the series will publish peer reviewed, practice-relevant research which will contribute to improving management and leadership within the AEC industry in developing economies and beyond. The series will also serve as an interdisciplinary research and information source on sustainable construction processes and in line with the current development of industry 4.0, will also publish in the field of construction digitalisation and its associated themes.
