GAM Graz Architecture Magazine
GAM publishes essays, interviews, illustrations, book reviews and projects related to the fields of architecture and urbanism. Published annually by the Faculty of Architecture of Graz University of Technology since 2004, it is conceived as an engaging interdisciplinary forum for scholars, architects and critics in which architectural developments and controversial phenomena are discussed. Adding to current architectural discourse, the contributions of each issue are devoted to a specific theme chosen by a guest editor.

Publication Ethics Graz Architecture Magazine (GAM) places great value on the adherence to ethical publication standards by all those involved in the publication process, i.e. authors, publishers, (guest) editors, and peer reviewers. GAM follows the guidelines set out by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). A significant contribution to the assurance of scientific quality is the double-blind peer-review process, in which qualified, independent experts from respective areas of expertise and fields of research evaluate the contributions submitted for publication, checking the originality and novelty of the research findings, the use of understandable and stringent argumentation, the methodological approach, and the relevance and correctness of the sources and references used. Compliance with scientific quality criteria is ensured by the GAM Citation Guidelines. Additionally, GAM promotes young researchers by providing intensive support during the publication process and by familiarizing them with high quality scientific work.
