Published in association with The Society of Light and Lighting, which is part of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, Lighting Research & Technology is the leading international peer reviewed journal that publishes the highest quality original research on the subject of light and lighting.

Lighting Research & Technology publishes papers by authors from around the world on all aspects of the subject of light and lighting. These range from the human response to light to all aspects of the science of light generation, light control and measurement. It also covers all aspects of lighting design including equipment for both interior and exterior environments, as well as daylighting, energy efficiency and sustainability.

The journal is published quarterly with around 20 papers published each year. All papers are peer reviewed and usually include a discussion contribution with a reply from the author.

The journal has been published continuously for almost forty years. It is recommended by the CIE, International Commission on Illumination, and has recently been accepted for inclusion into the ISI Science Certification Index Expanded. Both of these awards indicate the quality and authority of the journal.

The Editorial Board is keen to consider works dealing with research studies, in-depth reviews, case-studies describing innovative design and discussion papers concerned with all aspects of light and lighting and its related topics.

The overall aim is to help improve our knowledge of the subject and hence the quality of the lit environment.

LR&T is essential reading for everyone involved with the subject of light and lighting from the new student to the experienced practitioner, from the university academic to the industry technologist as well as specialist designers.
