Instructions for manuscript preparation

The format should be as follows:

Title page:

  • Manuscript title

  • E-mail address of the author for correspondence
  • Abstract: Abstract (Maximum 150 words) should be self-explanatory and without citations.
  • Keywords for subject search.

Introduction: The introduction should include a description of the background and aims of the work and what has been accomplished to date. 

Materials and Methods: Include full descriptions of all numerical, analytical, or experimental procedures.

Results: Results should be clearly stated and supported by figures, tables, or graphical representations of the findings.

Discussion: The discussion should address the importance of the major findings of the work, expanding upon the results.

Conclusions: A summary of important findings and their implications to the area of research that is the paper's focus.

Acknowledgments: Should be brief.

References: References should be listed in the order of appearance and a numerical reference (e.g. [1]) should be used within the paper. Examples of the reference style are given below:

  1. P.Mendis, R.Pendyala, and S.Setunge, "Stress-Strain Model to predict the Full-range Moment Curvature of High-strength Concrete Sections", Magazine of Concrete Research, Vol. 52, No. 4, August 2000, pp 227-234.
  2. Y.L.Mo, and S.J.Wang, "Seismic Behaviour of RC Columns with Various Tie Configurations", Journal of Structural Engineering - ASCE, Vol. 126, No. 10, October 2000, pp 1122-1130.

Any references to papers that appeared earlier in EJSE or another electronic journal, should include a standard HTML link. 

Reviewing and publication process

Manuscripts are selected for publication in the EJSE based on the editorial assessment of their suitability and the reports from reviewers. Articles that satisfy editorial criteria will be sent to three reviewers who have agreed to assess the article quickly. Contributors may suggest reviewers; requests for the exclusion of specific reviewers will also be considered.
