List of Civil Engineering Journals Published by Elsevier

Elsevier is undoubtedly one of the most renowned publishers of scientific and educational materials in the world. By offering the publication of textbooks, journals, and other services, they help advance research, information, and knowledge across several disciplines. According to their official website, the goal of Elsevier is to expand the boundaries of knowledge for the benefit of humanity.


If you have come up with a quality research article in Civil Engineering, you may want to consider publishing it with Elsevier since most articles published by Elsevier are usually rated very high in the world. Furthermore, most of their journals support open access and closed access. For closed access (standard subscription journals), your research article will be published free of charge by the journal, but access will be restricted to those who subscribe to the journal or those who are willing to purchase it. If you choose to publish it as open access (freely accessible to anyone), then you may have to pay for the publication.
