Structures journal: making an impact

Our research journal has been awarded its first Journal Impact Factor – an important measure of quality for academic journals.

With an Impact Factor of 1.646, Structures is ranked 68th out of 132 journals in the field of civil engineering, confirming its position as a high-quality journal in the field.

The award of an Impact Factor follows the admission of Structures to the Science Citation Index Expanded database earlier this year, and is expected to lead to a further increase in both the quantity and quality of submissions to the journal.
