    CNEAI criteria:

Articles must hold relevant positions in listings by scientific field such as the subject category listings of Journal Citation Reports of the Thomson Reuters Web of Science / Social Sciences Citation Index in the relevant areas of knowledge. In other cases, as appropriate, Journal Citation Reports (Social Science Citation Index) will be considered. Articles published in journals in international architectural publication indices, such as the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals in Columbia University's Avery Library, the Architectural Publications Index of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and Journal Citation Reports (Arts and Humanities Citation Index), will also be taken into account. Electronic journals will be considered when they appear in the Web of Science listings or when they satisfy the criteria for journals included in Appendix I of the resolution of November 15, 2013 (BOE, Official State Bulletin, November 21, 2013). Contributions that are published in these renowned journals but that are insufficient in length, such as notes or debates on previous articles already published in the journal, are excluded.

    (2) One-off architectural, urban, exhibition or design projects will be assessed on the basis of their innovative character, backed up by any awards and distinctions they may have received, their impact on national and international specialist literature or their presentation at relevant exhibitions or conferences.
