The CSIR-Structural Engineering Research Centre, Chennai, has been publishing the "Journal of Structural Engineering" (JOSE) since 1973. It was a quarterly journal till 2004 and subsequently this is being published bi-monthly on account of large responses received from the prospective authors nationally and internationally.
The Journal of Structural Engineering (JOSE) is an open forum on structural engineering / mechanics and papers relating to the field are welcome. Authors may kindly ensure that the papers have advanced scholarly value or interest to structural engineers, academicians, researchers and practicing engineers and contains original contributions leading to the advancement of knowledge in structural engineering/ mechanics. The paper may be an original review of past practice, probe a new field of structural engineering activity, or report on results of research and development activities. It may be a thought-provoking study that contributes to the planning, analysis, tests and experiments (in the laboratory or on the field), design, construction, and maintenance, health monitoring, repair/retrofit of structural components/system. Only such papers that have not been published or offered for publication elsewhere are considered. The subject can also include field experience of practicing engineers who have carried out cost-effective, novel/innovative schemes to achieve the objectives of the project that has safety and reliability as a component.
