About Malaysian Construction Research Journal (MCRJ)

The Malaysian Construction Research Journal (MCRJ) is the journal dedicated to the documentation of R&D achievements and technological development relevant to the construction industry within Malaysia and elsewhere in the world. It is a collation of research papers and other academic publications produced by researchers, practitioners, industrialists, academicians, and all those involved in the construction industry.

The papers cover a wide spectrum encompassing building technology, materials science, information technology, environment, quality, economics and many relevant disciplines that can contribute to the enhancement of knowledge in the construction field.
