Scope Advances in Structural Engineering is a peer-reviewed journal that aims to provide a major publication channel for cutting-edge research on civil engineering structures (e.g. bridges, buildings and offshore platforms) in areas of significant current interest to the international structural engineering community. The current focus areas of the journal, which are periodically reviewed by the editors, are as follows: (a) Structural use of composite and other emerging materials; (b) Behavior of structural systems; (c) Structures under extreme conditions (e.g. earthquakes, strong winds, fires and blasts etc.); (d) Performance-based structural engineering; (e) Life-cycle structural engineering; (f) Structural health monitoring for performance assessment; and (g) Sustainability in structural engineering. Notwithstanding these focus areas, papers of significant impact or lasting value in other areas of structural engineering are also welcome. Acceptance of a paper for publication in the journal is subjected to the manuscript being an unpublished work presenting a significant original contribution or an in-depth state-of-the-art review of a specific topic of significant current interest to the journal’s readership. Apart from full-length papers, short technical notes, discussions, and book reviews may also be published.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
