Publishing in ASCE Journals: A Guide for Authors


Prepared by the Publications Division of ASCE

A core mission of the American Society of Civil Engineers has always been to share information critical to civil engineers. Today, the journals of ASCE are the media through which civil engineers exchange technical and professional knowledge. Information published in the journals is the archival record of the technical advances of the profession. Authors of articles in ASCE journals include members and non-members, and the community surrounding each journal is international and multidisciplinary. This guide provides information about ASCE's journals program to assist authors in submitting and publishing their research.

Topics include guidelines for publication and types of journal content; ethical standards; ASCE publication policies on peer review, copyright, and permissions and reuse of material; a description of the peer review process; detailed instructions on manuscript preparation and submission; and an explanation of what happens after an article has been accepted.

Publishing in ASCE Journals is a key reference for any current or prospective author of articles and other content to be published in ASCE journals.
