Bulletin of Earthquake Engineering presents original, peer-reviewed papers on research related to the broad spectrum of earthquake engineering. The journal offers a forum for presentation and discussion of such matters as European damaging earthquakes, new developments in earthquake regulations, and national policies applied after major seismic events, including strengthening of existing buildings.
Coverage includes seismic hazard studies and methods for mitigation of risk; earthquake source mechanism and strong motion characterization and their use for engineering applications; geological and geotechnical site conditions under earthquake excitations; cyclic behavior of soils; analysis and design of earth structures and foundations under seismic conditions; zonation and microzonation methodologies; earthquake scenarios and vulnerability assessments; earthquake codes and improvements, and much more.

This is the Official Publication of the European Association for Earthquake Engineering.

Invitation for guest-edited special issues

Bulletin of Earthquake Engineering has a long tradition of publishing guest-edited special issues on topics of broad interest. We would like to invite you to send proposals for special issues. These can be brief and should include (1) a tentative title, (2) a list of authors and contributing titles, and (3) a timeline for completion of the issue. Please submit proposals to the Editor-in-Chief.

More detailed guidelines for Guest Editors can be found in the tab "Statement, Article Types and Guidelines for Special Issues" under Journal Updates.
