Overview and Aim: Cement is a vital component of concrete, the most used human-made material on the planet. Roughly half of all products manufactured every year are comprised of cementitious materials. It is crucial and exciting to have an open access journal detailing the most innovative findings including translational research regarding cementitious binders. The aim of CEMENT is to broadly disseminate innovative research related to cementitious binders, concrete and composites incorporating these binders (e.g. reinforced concrete) in an open access format. CEMENT is a spinoff partner of Cement and Concrete Research. Scope: The journal will focus on thematic areas related to cement and the influence of the binder characteristics on cement-based composites including sustainability, durability, and innovative solutions, with an emphasis on increasing understanding and rapid translation of high-impact research. Sustainability Novel cementitious materials, blended cements and individual and blended supplementary cementitious materials that present quantifiable and achievable solutions The development and use of cementitious materials to meet the needs of society both from an economical and a resource perspective (e.g. CO2 footprint, embodied energy, energy usage, water demand) Research which addresses social justice and the role of cementitious materials in this aspect of sustainability, including broadening societal access to reliable and modern infrastructure Durability Service-life prediction tools, including accelerated test methods and model validations on the grounds of experimental work and/or case studies for the long-term performance of cementitious materials, in particular reinforced concrete Enhanced understanding of mechanisms behind premature deterioration and/or innovative solutions to substantially reduce or eliminate particular forms of deterioration. Investigations into combined forms of chemical, electrochemical or physical attack Innovative Solutions Computational approaches that bring greater understanding to cementitious materials and facilitate their design Novel applications and solutions using cementitious materials to solve grand challenges in science and engineering Solutions at the interface of fields where cementitious materials are keys to advancement such as socio-economic improvements, post-crisis transition and countries with developing economies. Types of Papers CEMENT Considers CEMENT accepts original research manuscripts, technical notes and review articles. Special issues related to hot topics and critical needs within cement and cement-based materials are also encouraged and should be coordinated with the Editor-in-Chief. Papers related solely to structural aspects or mechanics of concrete or cement-based materials are not within the scope of CEMENT; there must be a significant focus on improvements to or understanding of the cementitious component.

Manuscripts about materials, structures, energy and other applications to non-building infrastructure (roads, bridges, tunnels, etc.) are unfortunately outside the scope of this journal. Please do not resubmit a rejected manuscript (unless the Editors have invited you to resubmit) as it will not be considered and will be rejected without review. Please do not contact the Editors for a status check of your manuscript as they handle a large number of submissions and unfortunately cannot answer all status requests. Please rather use the Track your submission option for this purpose. If your paper has been sent out for review, the Editors have to wait for the invited reviewers to agree to review the paper. Once the reviewers have kindly agreed to review the paper, they are requested to deliver their reviews within 21 days, however delays do occur unfortunately and this is not always possible. The Editors are aware of delayed manuscripts and reminders are sent to the reviewers of delayed papers to ask them to please upload their reviews at their earliest convenience. Once the Editors receive the required number of reviews they are then able to swiftly make their decision on a manuscript. Authors can rest assured that Editors are using all their resources to make the revision and publication process as swift as possible. Author duties: Acceptance of a manuscript for publication in the journal carries with it an understanding that the author, when requested, will fulfill an obligation to contribute their expertise to the review of others' manuscripts. Authors are also requested to suggest 3 independent referees together with their institutional email addresses. The named possible referees must not be from their own institution and some should be from different countries.

Perspectives in Architecture and Urbanism

  • ISSN: 2950-2675
In the context of the globalization of architecture and urbanism, as well as increasing regional differences, research about architecture and urbanism has developed in diverse intellectual directions in terms of knowledge forms, ways of thinking, and theoretical paradigms. The diversity is due to not only the unique histories and experiences of architecture and urbanism in different regions but also the mutual influences among cultures, communities, and positions. Moreover, new research perspectives continue to emerge as a result of the impact of new technologies, both actual and virtual. In the midst of these dynamic changes, Perspectives in Architecture and Urbanism provides a platform for sharing new intellectual horizons and research perspectives about global issues and regional specificities related to architecture and urbanism. The journal attempts to respond to contemporary challenges such as environmental sustainability, rapid urbanization, cultural differences, and the accelerating impact of technology. The journal will include alternative, multiple, and indigenous narratives from a broad array of historical, social, cultural, and technological perspectives. In this way, readers will understand the importance of reaching beyond singular narratives of modernity to rethink the intellectual framework about, and the more holistic understanding of contemporary architecture and urbanism. This open access journal is peer-reviewed and is published quarterly, comprising both guest-edited special issues and open issues. It has four columns: "Research Articles," "Review Articles," "Opinions and Criticisms," and "Multimedia." The journal covers the following topics: Histories of global architecture and urbanism Societal, economic, and cultural perspectives on architecture and design Scientific, technological, and constructional perspectives on buildings and cities Philosophies of technology and science for environmental research Digital approaches in architectural and urban design Smart cities and design intelligence Eco-sustainability and the built environment Built heritage conservation and urban regeneration Processes, products, and performances of design practices Methods and methodologies for research in architecture and urbanism
