Journal of Sustainable Construction Materials and Technologies. (JSCMT) is an international journal, peer-reviewed and open-access journal. Two referees, specialized on the subject, and selected by the Board of Editors review the manuscripts submitted. Four issues are released every year in March, June, September and December.
JSCMT carries original, full-length articles and shorter articles relating to the pursuit and implementation of sustainability pillars through engineering planning, design and application. It provides an academic platform for professionals and researchers to contribute innovative work in the field. Special issues devoted to international conferences and reviews of books and major reports will be published too.
Articles under the categories listed below are accepted to be published:
Research Articles reflects an original experimental and/or theoretical research works. A coherent treatment emphasizing new insight is expected rather than a simple accumulation of data.
Review Articles include authoritative reviews of recent advances in the basic and applied sciences with emphasis on the fundamental aspects of the subject. Manuscripts are generally of greater length than those found in other categories but contributions dealing in part with original research are not excluded. Contributors who may be invited by the editors, or who may submit outline proposals directly are offered a small royalty upon the publication of the article.
