Instructions to the Authors

The International Journal of Advance in Civil Engineering aims to publish all the latest and outstanding research articles, reviews, letters, technical reports and short communications in all areas of aspects of Civil Engineering. Current Emphasis is on the engineering relevance basis for common, complex and studied by experimental perturbation in civil engineering. Each issue contains a series of timely, in-depth written articles by leaders in the field, covering a wide range of the integration of multidimensional challenges of civil engineering including integration issues of structural developments.

Manuscripts may be submitted openly to the in electronic submission to E-Mail:

Submission Guideline

Conflict of Interest: Financial contributions to the work being reported should be clearly acknowledged, as should any potential conflict of interest.

Abstract: The abstract should not exceed 250 words and it should condense the essential features of the article, with the focus on-the background, methodology, results, conclusions and major advances in the field.

Keywords: Authors must supply up to eight key words along with their manuscript.

Text: The main text should begin on a separate page and it may be subdivided into separate sections. The article should mention any previous important in the field and contain a comprehensive discussion starting with the general background of the yield.

Tables: Data Tables should be submitted in Microsoft Excel or in Microsoft Word table format.

Photographs: Submit high-contrast prints that are of single- or double-column width so that they will not have to be reduced when printed. Negatives are not acceptable. However, in case of hardcopy submission, color illustrations and plates can be published from 35 mm color slides.

References: All references must be numbered in the text in square brackets, e.g. [6], or [8, 11-16], in order of citation in the text. Titles of journals are abbreviated according to Chemical Abstract Service Source Index, example:

[1] Gomase V.S.; Changbhale S.S.; Patil S.A. and Kale K.V. (2008) Current Drug Metabolism, 9(1), 88-98.

Abstracts, unpublished data and personal communications (which can only be included if the permission has been obtained) should not be given in the reference section but they may be mentioned in the text with details provided as footnotes. All authors of referenced papers must be cited and there must be no use of the short hand version of et al. when citing the authors.

Manuscript Submission: Two copies of the final manuscript must accompany the original along with the soft copy of the manuscript on a computer floppy disk(s) in MS Word file format (or created in any other well-known word processing software) should be submitted. To achieve rapid publication authors are encouraged to e-mail or post their submission to the appropriate given editorial address (see above)  at the sane time that they mail the manuscript.
