    Aims and Scope


    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.

    The following is a list of some subject areas describing the scope of the journal:

    • Evaluation of damage to structures and engineering systems resulting from recent earthquakes
    • New observations of strong motion characteristics and data processing techniques
    • Seismic risk and hazard analysis of civil infrastructure systems
    • Site effects on structures and geotechnical earthquake engineering
    • Seismic behavior and design criteria for buildings and lifeline systems
    • Advances in structural dynamics relevant to earthquake engineering
    • Theory and practice of health monitoring for structures under extreme loading.
    • Seismic retrofit strategies for existing infrastructure systems
    • Structural response modification using emerging control technologies and high performance materials
    • Engineering structural vibration under wind, wave and other dynamic loading

    For Authors

    Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as – tacitly or explicitly – by the responsible authorities at the institution where the work was carried out.

    Author warrants (i) that he/she is the sole owner or has been authorized by any additional copyright owner to assign the right, (ii) that the article does not infringe any third party rights and no license from or payments to a third party is required to publish the article and (iii) that the article has not been previously published or licensed. The author signs for and accepts responsibility for releasing this material on behalf of any and all co-authors. Transfer of copyright to Springer (respective to owner if other than Springer) becomes effective if and when a Copyright Transfer Statement is signed or transferred electronically by the corresponding author. After submission of the Copyright Transfer Statement signed by the corresponding author, changes of authorship or in the order of the authors listed will not be accepted by Springer.

    The copyright to this article, including any graphic elements therein (e.g. illustrations, charts, moving images), is assigned for good and valuable consideration to Springer effective if and when the article is accepted for publication and to the extent assignable if assignability is restricted for by applicable law or regulations (e.g. for U.S. government or crown employees).

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
