Elsevier Announces The Launch Of Open Access Journal: Case Studies In Construction Materials

OXFORD, England, November 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and solutions announces the launch of a new open access journal, Case Studies in Construction Materials .

Case Studies in Construction Materials provides an exciting new forum for the rapid publication of structured case studies and short communications on construction materials. The journal functions as an essential compendium for practicing engineers, designers, researchers and other practitioners who are interested in all aspects of construction materials.

Michael Grantham, Editor-in-Chief of the journal, consultant to Sandberg LLP and visiting Professor at Queen's University of Belfast, said of the launch, "Construction work today presents a constant challenge for designers, architects, engineers and contractors. A more detailed understanding of the science behind materials is making wider and more economical use possible. While a number of specialist publications are available for the publication of research data, the publication of case studies for construction materials has been less well served. Case Studies in Construction Materials gives authors an opportunity to publish useful and interesting studies highlighting successes and issues that can result in the use of construction materials, both existing and new.

Dr. Rishi Gupta, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Victoria, Canada, author of the first paper published in the journal, said, "This journal provides an excellent forum for practitioners and academics engaged in applied research related to construction materials to present their work as a case study. Open access and swift peer reviewed publication processes ensure that applied research and industry projects reach a wider audience."

Case Studies in Construction Materials is part of a series of "Case Studies in…" open access journals published by Elsevier within the field of engineering. Journals in the series will all follow the article based publishing model, allowing for immediate publication of the final version of a paper without waiting for other articles to be ready to compile a full issue.

To view the first articles published in Case Studies in Construction Materials go to ScienceDirect.
