Message from the Editor

eic_shixianming"The challenges in achieving better durability, reliability and resilience of civil infrastructures must be addressed with proactive, holistic, and multidisciplinary approaches. Facilitating the dialog between infrastructure preservation community and resilience and risk management community is crucial."

Aims and scope

Journal of Infrastructure Preservation and Resilience (JIPR) provides a cross-disciplinary forum for researchers to disseminate innovative research and engineering practices that preserve the integrity, performance, and resilience of existing infrastructure systems amid diverse climatic conditions, man-made and natural hazards, and other risks. Planning, design, construction, operations, inspection, monitoring, evaluation, retrofitting and reinforcing of infrastructure system (roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, ports, pipelines, etc.) are in scope with the journal. The journal aims to facilitate the dialog and collaboration between infrastructure engineering community and resilience and risk management community.  

Topics of interest may include the following:

  • Preservation and monitoring against foundational risks of infrastructures (e.g. bridge scour and slope instability)
  • Preservation and rehabilitation against infrastructure materials-related distresses (corrosion, freeze/thaw damage, alkali-aggregate reactions, cracking, rutting, aging, moisture damage, etc.)
  • Infrastructure system response and resilience (e.g. adaptation to disasters, climate change and extreme weather)
  • Decision support and management (e.g. data modelling and resilience assessment, life cycle cost analysis, risk assessment, life cycle assessment, characterization/modelling of interdependencies), etc.
  • Transportation geotechnics and geoecology
  • Remote sensing, online monitoring, and non-destructive evaluation of infrastructures

COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
