Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been revolutionising the traditional construction management and workflow in the industry. The construction industry is known for fragmentation in its nature of project delivery. Therefore, it is essential to foster collaboration among stakeholders from various disciplines through BIM. Collaboration among the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) professions strived to enhance teamwork, interactions, and information sharing by using a cloud-based environment. Furthermore, collaboration adds value to the project team to improve the sustainability and efficiency of work. There were abundant studies focused on examining the collaboration in the BIM-based construction projects, where the interdisciplinary approach was lacking. This study intends to present an analysis of the existing literature on the interprofessional collaboration (IPC) among the stakeholders' practices in the BIM projects. A total of ninety-six research journal articles regarding IPC in BIM-based projects was guided by the PRISMA Statement (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses) review method. Six main themes and thirty-nine sub-themes were identified as an outline of IPC, namely collaboration, individual characteristics, interactional characteristics, team interactional characteristics, organisational features, and professional roles characteristics. In the thematic analysis, team interaction was noticeably the most frequently discussed aspect in the previous studies. Further studies about the social aspects of IPC in BIM-based construction projects were recommended. It was suggested to study the subject in a quantitative or mixed-methods approach. © 2022, Construction Research Institute of Malaysia. All rights reserved.
