Aims & Scope


Journal of Civil and Hydraulic Engineering (JCHE) (ISSN 2958-0579) is an international open access scholarly journal, which provides an emerging platform for publication of the latest knowledge on any aspect of civil engineering and hydraulic engineering. Our mission is to accept and disseminate original contributions that describe the analyses and solutions in relevant fields, such as civil structure and materials, hydraulic and geotechnical engineering, and water resources management, to name but a few. We welcome original submissions in various forms, including reviews, regular research papers, and short communications as well as Special Issues on particular topics. Our emphasis is placed on the presentation of concepts, methodologies, technologies, and results that advance the knowledge and application in related fields.

The aim of JCHE is to encourage scientists to publish their theoretical and experimental results in as much detail as possible. Therefore, the journal has no restrictions regarding the length of papers. Full details should be provided so that the results can be reproduced. In addition, the journal has the following features:

  • Manuscripts regarding new and innovative research proposals and ideas are particularly welcome.
  • Authors from non-English speaking countries will receive language support.
  • Following a rigorous review process, the accepted papers are published quickly to minimize the time from submission to publication.


The scope of the journal covers, but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Civil structure and materials
  • Geotechnical and foundation engineering
  • Underground and tunnel engineering
  • Road, bridge and railway engineering
