Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Vibration, published biannually, is established by the Institute of Engineering Mechanics (IEM), China Earthquake Administration, in cooperation with MCEER, University at Buffalo, State University of New York, to promote scientific exchange between Chinese and foreign scientists and engineers so as to improve the theory and practice of earthquake hazards mitigation, preparedness, and recovery.

To accomplish this purpose, the journal aims to attract a balanced number of papers between Chinese and international authors by publishing original papers and invited papers addressing the state-of-the-art knowledge and practice that have overlapping interest between China and other countries related to earthquake engineering. The journal has a special interest in encouraging joint authorship of Chinese and foreign contributors such as those resulting from PRC-US cooperative research projects.

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

bullet

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

bullet

New observations of strong motion characteristics and data processing techniques.

bullet

Seismic risk and hazard analysis of civil infrastructure systems.

bullet

Site effects on structures and geotechnical earthquake engineering.

bullet

Seismic behavior and design criteria for buildings and lifeline systems.

bullet

Advances in structural dynamics relevant to earthquake engineering.

bullet

Theory and practice of health monitoring for structures under extreme loading.

bullet

Seismic retrofit strategies for existing infrastructure systems.

bullet

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

bullet

Engineering structural vibration under wind, wave and other dynamical loadings
