From the Editors

The year 2007 is a transformational one for us as the Journal of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Vibration changes from a semi-annual to a quarterly schedule and is published by Springer Verlag. Beginning with Vol. 6, No. 1, four issues of about 100 pages each will be published each year. The journal will continue to be available in print format, and a new electronic offering will be accessible through SpringerLink, Springer’s Internet portal. We believe that this change will further our goal of promoting scientific exchange between China, the United States and the international community and we look forward to working with Springer in the coming years.

Our efforts have also achieved recognition in several prominent sources of information, including the Cambridge Science Abstracts (CSA), Engineering Index (EI)/Compendex, Earthquake Engineering Abstracts, Geological Abstracts, Georef, Geotechnical Abstracts, International Civil Engineering Abstracts, Quakeline, Shock and Vibration Digest, Technology Information Institute of China Wan Fang data-digital periodicals, and the Transportation Research Information Service. We hope that this exposure, together with Springer Verlag’s extensive distribution network, will help to accelerate knowledge transfer among the international community.

We thank the managing editors, Dr. Jianguo Xiong and Ms. Jane Stoyle, for their fine effort and commitment to the success of the Journal. They have made a substantial effort to ensure that non-native English speaking authors present their ideas in a clear and correct manner by professionally editing each submission. We also thank the contributing authors for offering us their outstanding knowledge in the field of earthquake engineering and engineering vibration.

Today’s engineers are in a unique position to deal with multiple hazard protection of buildings, bridges and infrastructure systems and to deliver “smart” constructed facilities to better serve society. In the coming years, we hope to expand the earthquake engineering knowledge base in principles, approaches and technologies to encompass these new areas. We believe that our journal can play a significant role in enhancing the rapid realization of this new vision. With this belief and objective in mind, we sincerely invite future contributions in smart structure technologies, high performance buildings and bridges, and multiple hazard resilient communities.
