ITB Journal

The ITB Journal uniquely offers the opportunity for the members of ITB, visitors and guest contributors to publish an article on their research in a multidisciplinary journal. The hope is that by offering the chance to bring their work out of their specialised area into a wider forum, they will share their work with the broader community at ITB and other academic institutions.'
