From the Editors

As the Journal of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Vibration enters its fourth year of publication, we believe the first six issues are on the right track toward promoting scientific exchange between China, the United States and the international community. Our contributors have hailed from many countries throughout the world including Canada, China, Greece, Italy, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Turkey and the United States.

In this short time, our efforts have achieved recognition in several prominent sources of information, including the Engineering Index (EI)/Compendex (as of July 2004, all papers from the journal’s inception and continuing into the future will be included in EI), as well as 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 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 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 and multiple hazard resilient communities.
