Recently published and forthcoming titles
Geotechnical Engineering, Volume 172, Issue 1, a themed issue on advances in seismic design, has just been published. Topics selected for this issue illustrate how seismic considerations can be incorporated in the design and analysis of structures and in code development.
Continuing with the seismic theme, the forthcoming book Seismic Design of Foundations: Concepts and applications will offer practical means of applying the latest state-of-the-art research, drawing from post-earthquake reconnaissance case studies from around the world.
Call for papers
As the world’s seventh largest economy and one of the fastest growing, India has experienced a dramatic increase in infrastructure development in recent years.
To be published in May 2020, this planned special issue aims to showcase India’s world-class infrastructure projects and share the techniques, experiences and lessons learned with a global professional audience.
The deadline for abstracts is 31 May 2019 and the deadline for submissions is 29 November 2019.
The journal Green Materials has also issued a call for papers for a themed issue on sustainable flame-retarded materials. The abstract deadline is 8 April 2019 and the full paper submission deadline is 30 September 2019.
New tools for researchers
In a new partnership between Yewno and ICE Publishing, researchers will find it easier than ever to uncover resources and discover the unexpected.
The Yewno Discover platform scans allICE Publishing content against other sources, allowing for an at-a-glance look at different scholarly connections in the style of a star constellation map.
This is ideal for researchers and academics looking for credible interdisciplinary sources and those who are interested in how other fields can inform civil engineering.
A separate partnership with Digital Science sees the integration of Dimensions Badges into the ICE Virtual Library, which give articles’ performance metrics and citations.
Readers will be able to view how many others in the field are using the same article and the sorts of work it's been used in.
This will be particularly valuable to authors, allowing them to gauge the impact of their articles and see how it's spread and informed others’ research.
