Engineering Structures provides a forum for a broad blend of scientific and technical papers to reflect the evolving needs of the structural engineering and structural mechanics communities. Particularly welcome are contributions dealing with new developments or innovative applications of structural and mechanics principles and digital technologies for the analysis and design of engineering structures. The journal aspires to a broad and integrated coverage of these principles and technologies to structures and structural components, considering all classes of engineering structural materials (steel, steel and fiber reinforced concrete, composite, masonry, glass, wood, novel (smart) materials such as nanomaterials and bio-inspired materials).

The scope of Engineering Structures encompasses, but is not restricted to, the following areas: infrastructure engineering; earthquake engineering; structural dynamics; structure-fluid-soil interaction; wind engineering; fire engineering; blast engineering; structural reliability/stability; life assessment/integrity; structural health monitoring; multi-hazard engineering; structural optimization; digital design methods; data-driven analysis methods; experimental methods; additive manufacturing and modular construction of engineering structures; performance-based design; multiscale analysis; and value engineering.

Topics of interest include, for example: tall buildings; innovative structures; environmentally responsive structures; bridges; stadiums; commercial and public buildings; transmission towers; television and telecommunication masts; foldable structures; cooling towers; wind power generation structures; plate and shell structures; suspension structures; protective structures; smart structures; nuclear reactors; dams; pressure vessels; pipelines; tunnels.

Engineering Structures also publishes review articles* , short communications, discussions and a diary on international events related to any aspect of structural engineering and structural mechanics. Manuscripts should present relevant advances as compared to the state of research. Case studies and multiple part papers are, in general, not accepted, and could be considered only if they are related to a clear and high-level scientific or technical innovation. *Authors wishing to submit a review article to the journal should first contact the Editors-in-Chief responsible for their region with a proposal, including a description/abstract, list of all authors, corresponding author's CV and a list of the work they have done or published in the area of the review paper. The Editors will assess this proposal and invite the author to submit if they feel the proposal/topic is of interest for the journal and has high-level technical merits. Unsolicited review articles will unfortunately be declined without review.

Author duties: All Authors are required to use institutional/professional email addresses instead of generic email address e.g. Gmail, Hotmail, Acceptance of a manuscript for publication in the journal carries with it an understanding that the author, when requested, will fulfil an obligation to contribute their expertise to the review of others' manuscripts. Authors are also requested to name independent referees together with institutional email addresses. The named possible referees must not be from their own institution.
