The South African Institution Of Civil Engineering
Follow us on:   

The forerunner of the South African Institution of Civil Engineering was established in 1903 as a learned society aiming to develop technology and to share knowledge for the development of the day. The minutes of the proceedings of the then Cape Society of Civil Engineers mainly contained technical papers presented at the Society's meetings. Since then, and throughout its long history (during which time it has undergone several name changes), the organisation has continued to publish technical papers in its monthly publication (magazine), until 1993 when it created a separate journal for the publication of technical papers.

Today, the Journal of the South African Institution of Civil Engineering publishes refereed papers on all aspects of Civil Engineering relevant to Africa. It is an open access, internationally accredited journal, providing authoritative information not only on current developments, but also – through its back issues – giving access to data on established practices and the construction of existing infrastructure.
It is published quarterly (from 2015, previously biannually), and is controlled by a Journal Editorial Panel.

The African Journal Archive website stands under the auspices of Sabinet Gateway, which is the non-profit arm of Sabinet promoting and supporting library and information services in Africa. The African Journal Archive was established after Sabinet Gateway received a grant from the Carnegie Corporation for the creation of a digital archive of African research published exclusively in Africa. A hundred years' worth of SAICE material was scanned by them recently and uploaded onto their website.
