How to publish in this journal


RIC is a journal oriented so much to academics as to professionals. The journal publishes originals and unpublished works, as much in Spanish as in English in all the important topics of engineering and construction management such as: construction materials; technologies, methods and construction processes; construction management and its resources; enterprise management in the construction; viable construction and rehabilitation of materials and structures and other topics of interest. The journal includes articles that inform the results of the investigation as well as applications and practise cases. The opinions expressed in the articles are the sole responsability of their authors and not necessarily reflect the Engineering Department and Construction Management nor the Publisher point of view. We invite researchers, academics and interested professionals to contribute with articles to be published in the journal or send discussions on the articles already 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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.
