Goals and Objectives of our Journal
  1. Unique publication media for the research findings by MGSU researchers, their Russian and international colleagues.
  2. Highlights of the most challenging upcoming trends in the civil engineering science and practice, theory and history of urban planning and architectural art.
  3. Unique networking and interfacing opportunity for researches from different regions and countries.
The Editorial Board keeps searching for new contributing authors whilst involving researchers from partner universities of the International Association of Institutions of Higher Education in Civil Engineering, colleagues employed with universities of technology and civil engineering in CIS states and worldwide, leading researchers of research institutes, specialists and top executives of design and construction companies with our publication activities.
Materials to be considered for publication in our Journal topic sections include insights, research papers, scientific overviews and reviews, as well as scientific publication feedback articles on construction and architecture fundamentals and applications.
A scientific article is a finalised and copyrighted work describing results of an original scientific study (a primary scientific article) or relating to reviews of the scientific articles in the same domain published earlier (scientific overviews). In primary scientific articles, authors provide essential details of their completed studies in such a form as is most convenient for other scientific community members to assess such studies, simulate experiments, as well as assess the authors’ reasoning and conclusions. The purpose of scientific overviews is to provide a summary, an analysis, an assessment, a general overview or a synopsis of an earlier published information (primary scientific publications). Normally, a scientific article combines these two types of scientific texts, including an overview and an original scientific work.
The Information section is intended for publishing the materials on R&D and construction companies’ achievement highlights and contribution to the construction industry.
Per the RF Media Laws and the incorporation paperwork, the advertising materials relating to the construction science advanced technologies, best educational practices, newsbreaks, events, scientific conferences and trade fairs are also published in the Journal.
The Journal focus is construction and architecture science challenges (including construction activities in Russia and abroad, construction materials, equipment, technologies and methods, architectural theory, history, design, refurbishment and urban planning reviews).
