Aims and Scope

The Journal of the Earthquake Engineering Society of Korea (J.Earthq.Eng.Soc.Korea)is a journal of peer-reviewed papers on the latest advances in analysis, experiment and practice dedicated to earthquakes in the fields of seismology and earthquake engineering. J.Earthq.Eng.Soc.Korea is the official journal of the Earthquake Engineering Society of Korea (EESK) founded in 1997. The aim of this journal is to present research and developments on the latest technologies related to earthquake engineering in all aspects. The journal will provide a powerful repository of scientific, technical and practical information for the research and professional community encompassing all disciplines of the earthquake engineering and seismology fields. The journal publishes 6 issues per year and follows an open-access policy. J.Earthq.Eng.Soc.Korea (ISSN: 1226-525X) is indexed in the Korea Citation Index (KCI).
Papers considered for publication are original and high-quality works on analytical, experimental, design and field studies that form:
-a valuable contribution to the theory or practice of earthquake engineering;
- a state-of-the-art work on a topic related to earthquake;
-a case study on a significant earthquake-related problem.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics considered to be within the scope of the journal: tectonics and seismology, strong-motion studies, soil dynamics and foundations, site effects and geotechnical aspects, soil-structure interaction, design of earthquake resistant structures and foundations, earthquake demand and structural capacity, experimental and computational methods, seismic regulations and codes, passive and active control systems for seismic protection, seismic hazard assessment, earthquake disaster mitigation and emergency planning, repair and strengthening, seismic safety of industrial and nuclear facilities, case studies, field investigations, and research and development results.


EESK will send J.Earthq.Eng.Soc.Korea for free to EESK members only.
