About

The Nordic Journal of Surveying and Real Estate Research (NJSR) is an international scholarly Open Access journal focusing on the various perspectives of built environment research. NJSR provides a great forum for all studies related to the built environment, including but not limited to: Cadastre and land management, Spatial information management, Urban and regional planning and development, Real estate management, as well as Construction economics and management. The journal is published biannually by the Finnish Society of Surveying Sciences. The journal is a scientific referee journal and every article goes through a double-blind peer-review process. Each article is assigned an issue and volume, however, articles are available online as soon as accepted.

We invite you to submit articles through our Paper Submission System powered by OJS Open Journal systems. Please see Author Guidelines for detailed instructions.
