Data collection method:

The dataset includes the bibliographic information for all literature returned from a systematic literature review. The systematic literature review was conducted using three-tiered searches in Compendex, Scopus and Web of Science on December 16, 2019. The search used 'LCA' and 'Building' for the first two search fields in all for searches. 'Design Process', 'Early Stage Design', 'Iterative' and 'Streamlin*' were used for the third search field. The dataset includes the bibliographic information for all returned literature. The abstracts of the downloaded literature were reviewed to categorize them based on scope.
