How to publish in this journal


The focus of this journal is on applications of soft computing methods in civil engineering. Domains of applications include structural engineering, design, diagnostics, health monitoring, hydraulic engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, environmental engineering, coastal/ocean engineering and construction management. Articles submitted to this journal could also be concerned about the most significant recent developments in the topics of soft computing and its application in civil engineering. The journal also provides a forum where civil engineering researchers can obtain information on relevant new developments in optimization. Typical areas of interest could be listed as below: • Machine Learning • Deep Learning • Structural Optimization • Pattern Recognition • Data Mining • Artificial Neural Networks • Fuzzy Logic and Fuzzy Systems • Heuristic Algorithms • Evolutionary Computation • Support Vector Machine • Genetic Algorithm • Swarm Intelligence • Ant Colony Optimizations • Charged System Search • Artificial Bee Colony • Particle Swarm Algorithm • Cuckoo Search • Big Bang-Big Crunch • Imperialist Competitive Algorithm • Bat Algorithm • Wolf Search • Harmony Search • Stochastic Diffusion Search • Fish Swarm/School • Genetic Programming • Hybrid Algorithms • Proposed Soft Computing Algorithms 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.

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.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

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.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

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.
