Founded in 2002 and publishing quarterly as of 2007, Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Vibration is an international journal sponsored by the Institute of Engineering Mechanics (IEM), China Earthquake Administration, co-sponsored by Huixian Earthquake Engineering Foundation (China) and United States-China Earthquake Engineering Foundation (USA). It promotes scientific exchange between Chinese and foreign scientists and engineers, to improve the theory and practice of earthquake hazards mitigation, preparedness, and recovery.
To accomplish this purpose, the journal aims to attract a balance of Chinese and international authors by publishing original and invited papers addressing the latest theories and applications of interest to earthquake engineering communities, both in China and other countries. The journal has a special interest in encouraging joint authorship between Chinese and foreign contributors such as that resulting from the PRC - US cooperative research projects.
