How to publish in this journal


The Architectural Institute of Japan’s Journal of Structural and Construction Engineering aim to pursue theories for building and maintaining pieces of architecture as well as the cities or areas surrounding them, and to accumulate and systematize the knowledge needed to put those theories into practice. The Journal of Structural and Construction Engineering focuses on research results in the specific fields of “building materials and construction” and “structures.” Accordingly, it compiles articles in the following areas, disseminates relevant information, and hosts discussions: ・Concrete, steel, and inorganic materials ・Timber and organic materials ・Finishing materials ・Construction and quality management ・Applied mechanics ・Loads and reliability on structures ・Building foundations ・Timber structures ・Steel structures ・Reinforced concrete structures ・Shell and spatial structures ・Engineering seismology and structural dynamics ・Other composite structures Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

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.
