Avestia introduces the publication of the International Journal of Civil Infrastructure (IJCI), formerly known as the Journal of Civil, Structural, and Transportation Engineering (JCSTE).

This journal is based on the continuous model in English and adopts the open-access model, meaning that all interested readers have free access to the journal's homepage and articles without the need for subscription. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.

All published papers of IJCI will be submitted to Google Scholar for indexing and Portico for archiving.

IJCI is a high-quality peer-reviewed journal, in which every article will be peer-reviewed by several experts in the relevant field and assigned unique DOIs by CrossRef. Upon acceptance, articles will be published in the latest open volume. One continuous volume per year is published.


IJCI welcomes only original research and review papers that significantly develops technical knowledge in fields related to either Geotechnical Engineering, Transport Infrastructure, or Structural Materials and with a particular interest in the advancement of Green Building Materials. While the subject matter may be diverse, every article submitted to IJCI should consider this essential advancement of knowledge, including review papers. These topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Advanced Structural Materials
  • Building Materials
  • Coastal Engineering
  • Earthquake and Structural Engineering
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Green Building Materials and Technology
  • Marine Structures
  • New Technologies, Methods, and Techniques in Civil Engineering
  • Road, Bridge, and Railway Engineering
  • Structural Mechanics
  • Transport Infrastructure
  • Tunnel Engineering
