The Institution of Structural Engineers’ new research journal, Structures, is now open for submissions via publication partner Elsevier’s website.
Structures is a new, online, peer-reviewed journal covering the full breadth of structural engineering research. Uniquely, Structures seeks to make research articles applicable to current and future practice, making its findings of interest to both industry and academic readers.
Combining the depth of structural engineering research activity from the Institution’s membership with contributions from world-leading non-member researchers, Structures aspires to quickly become a journal of choice for the engineering community.
Papers are sought in areas including (but not limited to): structural engineering; materials; structural design; structural mechanics; construction engineering; structural innovation; extreme events; sustainability; architectural topics (that impact structural performance) and other related areas.
The Institution’s flagship publication, The Structural Engineer, will continue to publish research papers until the end of 2014, but all new, research-based contributions should be directed to Structures for consideration. Any queries relating to Structures should be addressed to structures(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)istructe.org.
Lee Baldwin, Managing Editor of The Structural Engineer and Structures said:
“With this new title, we aim to provide authors and readers with an invaluable addition to the existing structural research offering, and very much look forward to providing authors with timely, in-depth feedback on their work. Rapid publication of innovative global research development is something that the Institution is extremely well placed to deliver”.
