Construction management abstracts : cumulative abstracts and indexes of journals in construction management, 1983-2000

By Will Hughes and Association of Researchers in Construction Management


The purpose of this document is to provide a single source of reference for\ud every paper published in the journals directly related to research in\ud Construction Management.\ud It is indexed by author and keyword and contains the titles, authors, abstracts\ud and keywords of every article from the following journals:\ud • Building Research and Information (BRI)\ud • Construction Management and Economics (CME)\ud • Engineering, Construction and Architectural Management (ECAM)\ud • Journal of Construction Procurement (JCP)\ud • Journal of Construction Research (JCR)\ud • Journal of Financial Management in Property and Construction (JFM)\ud • RICS Research Papers (RICS)\ud The index entries give short forms of the bibliographical citations, rather than\ud page numbers, to enable annual updates to the abstracts. Each annual\ud update will carry cumulative indexes, so that only one index needs to be\ud consulted
