Sustainable Structures and Materials (SSM) is an international peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that publishes twice a year with original research articles as well as review articles in all areas sustainable structure and building materials. The journal welcomes submissions across a range of disciplines and publishes both theoretical and practical studies. Contributions from academia and from industry are equally encouraged.
SSM provides permanent archiving for electronic scholarly journals. It operates a fully open access publishing model which allows open global access to its published content. SSM is in the process to get many leading abstracting and indexing databases.
Sustainable Structures and Materials (SSM) provides a valuable dispersion of research and development in the field of sustainable structure and building materials. The journal publishes a wide range of international research which describes simulation, laboratory, and numerical study on different projects as well as review articles and short discussions and communications.
The aim of Sustainable Structures and Materials is to develop an inter-disciplinary platform for the dissemination of knowledge and practice on the engineering and architecture issues concerning all aspects of building design, technology, energy and environmental performance use of new materials and up-to-date technologies.
