Aims & Scope


The Journal of Civil and Hydraulic Engineering (JCHE) is a pioneering, international open-access journal dedicated to disseminating the latest advancements in civil and hydraulic engineering. Our mission is to cultivate a comprehensive understanding and innovative solutions in a range of subfields including civil structures and materials, hydraulic and geotechnical engineering, and water resources management. JCHE is committed to promoting the integration of theory and practice, encouraging the submission of original works in various formats such as reviews, regular research papers, short communications, and special issues on specific topics. Our focus is on the articulation of novel concepts, methodologies, and technologies that propel forward the knowledge and application in these interrelated fields.

The objective of JCHE is to be a leading source for in-depth research and insights, encouraging authors to present their findings with extensive detail for replication and broader understanding. Thus, the journal imposes no restrictions on the length of papers, emphasizing the importance of comprehensive documentation. Additional features of the journal include:

  • Every publication benefits from prominent indexing, ensuring widespread recognition.

  • A distinguished editorial team upholds unparalleled quality and broad appeal.

  • Seamless online discoverability of each article maximizes its global reach.

  • An author-centric and transparent publication process enhances submission experience.
