SCImago Journal & Country Rank

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. 

Aims and Scope: Structural Engineering International (SEI) publishes technical reports and scientific papers with a focus on structural engineering, to bridge the gap between professionals and academics. SEI is a journal with a mix of articles ranging from practical to scientific. SEI publishes articles on recent structures, developments in practice and research. Articles in SEI consider all types of structures, bridges, buildings, offshore structures, etc., constructed from all types of building materials: concrete, steel, composites, timber, fibre reinforced polymers, glass, etc. Articles in SEI also deal with the sustainability of structures and a broad range of structural engineering practice from design to construction to maintenance and monitoring, and finally to the re-use or demolition of structures.

All technical articles are reviewed by the IABSE SEI Editorial Board, with collaboration of over 250 Reviewers  over 20 Correspondents. In April 2012, the journal was selected by Thomson Reuters to be indexed in Web of Science ; Science Citation Index Expanded (SciSearch); Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition; Current Contents/Engineering, Computing, and Technology starting  with Vol.20(1) 2010. 

IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge. The is supported by the internet based manuscript submission and review system ‘ScholarOne’ from Thomson Reuters. To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year. Since 2010 the high standing of the journal is supported by the SEI Advisory Board.
