Noteworthy BIM publications (NBP)s are publically-available documents developed by various industry and academic entities; aimed at a wide audience; and intended to promote BIM understanding, regulate BIM implementation or mandate BIM requirements. These publications encapsulate extensive BIM-focused knowledge; collate significant domain expertise; and represent a substantial effort within the BIM domain.
- NBPs are documents (i.e. not websites, blogs or similar);
- NBPs reflect BIM knowledge (i.e. publications focused on BIM skill are excluded);
- NBPs are the deliverables of BIM players (i.e. publications delivered by players from other industries are excluded);
- NBPs cover relevant BIM topics (i.e. publications covering pre-BIM topics are excluded);
- NBPs are macroscopic (i.e. documents aimed at small groups of practitioners or students are excluded); and
- NBPs are selected and organized by country of origin
Using these framework-based delimitations, NBPs represent numerous types of published documents spanning industry initiatives, peer-reviewed journals, self-published books and other noteworthy publications.
