Virtual reality-integrated workflow in BIM-enabled projects collaboration and design review: a case study

10.29 ImageThis paper investigates the application of a VR based workflow in a real project. The authors collaborated with a software company to evaluate some of their advanced VR software features, such as simulation of an on-site task. A case study of VR integrated collaboration workflow serves as an example of how firms can overcome the challenge of benefiting this new technology. A group of AEC professionals involved in a project were invited to take part in the experiment, utilizing their actual project BIM models.

Article Processing Charge (APC) Paying Options

The following are the APC payment options that authors can take upon the submission to Visualization in Engineering. The option has to be selected at the time of a manuscript submission and follow up actions to the selection will be take place if the review decision of the submission is decided as “Accepted for publication”. 

Option 1: Journal Affiliates Fee Coverage Request

There is full sponsorship available for some articles through Visualization in Engineering's affiliated societies. Please notify the editor of your coverage request at prior to submission of your article.Please note that this not the same as requesting a waiver (see Option 2).

Option 2: SpringerOpen Fee Waiver request

Authors from low income countries or from SpringerOpen Membership institutions will be able to separately request waivers or discounts in Editorial Manager.

Option 3: Author self-paying APC

The authors will pay the full charge of APC of their manuscript (EUR 1100 per paper). Self-paying authors will do so through Editorial Manager.

Submission requirements

Articles presented in this journal should explicitly include three main elements:

  • a research problem, which has significant importance to the field and rich scientific merit.
  • an Innovative solution, which should include specialist knowledge and be feasible to implement, to solve the target research problem.
  • a rigorous validation, which should primarily test the performance and usability of the innovative solution, and may include qualitative and quantitative methods.

The authors are expected to clearly present these three elements in the abstract. At the beginning of the submitted manuscript, the authors must provide a separate page summarizing them in three to five sentences each.
