Call for Papers: Pavement Preservation and Resilience: Strategies and Innovative Technologies

Road infrastructure is the most interconnected system among various transportation infrastructures, which supports door-to-door mobility. Pavement is the most direct carrier of road traffic and its performance directly affects the safety, comfort, and efficiency of traffic. However, despite its importance, pavement is always threatened by aging, vehicle loads, environmental factors, and various natural and man-made extreme events. This collection aims to explore recent advances in pavement preservation and resilience.

"JIPR aims to become the flagship journal in the multidisciplinary field of infrastructure preservation and resilience (IPR), providing a cross-disciplinary forum for researchers to disseminate innovative research and engineering practices that preserve the integrity, performance, and resilience of infrastructure systems." 

- Xianming  Shi, Washington State University, USA

Read the full interview here, where Editor Shi goes into detail regarding his educational and professional background, the inspiration and reasoning to launch this cross-disciplinary scholarly discussion platform, and the long term goals for the journal. 

Featured Article: Characterization of vulnerability of road networks to fluvial flooding using SIS network diffusion model

flooded roadJIPR has published an intriguing article that deals with prediciting the vulnerability of road networks to fluvial flooding using a network diffusion-based method, something more commonly used to model the spread of infectious diseases. This newly adapted method, as supported by the results of this study, seems to be a promising and innovative way to monitor the diffusion processes and cascading structural vulnerabilities in road networks that experience fluvial flooding.

This paper is a great example of the innovative, cross-disciplinary, and sustainable research developments that it is JIPR’s mission to publish. Read the full article here.

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.
