New Journal Published to Enhance Exchange of Earthquake Hazard Mitigation Research Between China and International Community

cover of volume 1, number 1 of the Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Vibration Journal

Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Vibration (EEEV) is a new journal published by the Institute of Engineering Mechanics (IEM), China Seismological Bureau, in cooperation with MCEER. The main objective is to promote scientific exchange between Chinese and international scientists and engineers to improve the theory and practice of earthquake hazards mitigation, preparedness, and recovery. MCEER's role emphasizes introducing Chinese researchers to the systems-integrated, multidisciplinary research being carried out through the Center.

The Journal of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Vibration is the first English-language journal to be published in China and will be issued by IEM twice per year. It will include approximately 20 papers in each issue, with a balanced number from Chinese and international authors. Both original and invited papers addressing state-of-the-art knowledge and practice in earthquake engineering will be included. The journal is peer reviewed, and has an international editorial board (for a list of members, see the journal's website).

The following is a list of some subject areas describing the scope of the journal:

  • Evaluations of damage to structures and engineering systems resulting from recent earthquakes.

  • New observations of strong motion characteristics and data processing techniques.

  • Seismic risk and hazard analysis of civil infrastructure systems.

  • Site effects on structures and geotechnical earthquake engineering.

  • Seismic behavior and design criteria for buildings and lifeline systems.

  • Advances in structural dynamics relevant to earthquake engineering.

  • Theory and practice of health monitoring for structures under extremely loading.

  • Seismic retrofit strategies for existing infrastructure systems.

  • Structural response modification using emerging control technologies and high performance materials

  • Engineering structural vibration under wind, wave and other dynamic loadings

Papers are currently being solicited for future issues. Submission instructions can be found on MCEER's web site at, or by contacting one of the managing editors: Xiong Jianguo, Professor, IEM, CSB, 9 Xuefu Road, Harbin 150080, China, email:; or Jane Stoyle, Publications Manager, MCEER, University at Buffalo, Red Jacket Quad, Buffalo, NY 14261 USA; email:
