Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to this ZEMCH design engineering knowledge depository, in which the term ZEMCH stands for zero energy mass custom home. Designing built environments is influential. Homes need to be mass-customised to accommodate today’s diverse needs and demands of individuals and societies for humans’ sound living conditions and activities. Social justice and climatic change within built environments in global contexts are a significant part of ZEMCH R&D action. Due to growing housing needs and demands, the global market required the initiation of the ZEMCH R&D movement so as to ensure the delivery of socially, economically, environmentally, and humanely sustainable built environments to privileged and unprivileged families, communities, and nations that are sharing our common future.

This Collection aims to encompass a wide spectrum of ZEMCH research and development knowledge that concerns design engineering, construction management, material innovation, renewable energy technology, community planning, marketing strategy, and education.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Encyclopedia is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
