Aims and Scope

Bulletin of Earthquake Engineering – the Official Publication of the European Association for Earthquake Engineering - is devoted to original and inter disciplinary, peer-reviewed papers on theoretical and applied research related to the broad spectrum of earthquake engineering with similar emphasis on all topics.  Earthquake risk mitigation requires close interaction between different scientific and operational disciplines encouraging and motivating joint research and implementation aiming to advance the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice. 

The journal provides a forum for the European Earthquake Engineering Community to present and discuss matters of major interest e.g. important  damaging European earthquakes, new developments in earthquake regulations, national policies applied after the occurrence of major seismic events (for example strengthening of existing buildings, etc.).

It is the incentive to keep the review period for scripts submitted to the journal to a minimum and to publish contributions in the form of original and review papers, or as short technical notes.

 Topics that fit to the broad spectrum of BEE include but are not necessarily restricted to:
