Since 1903, members of SAICE’s forerunner congregated monthly to share knowledge and technical papers which were documented in the form of meeting minutes. Throughout its long history (which included various name changes), the organisation has continued to publish technical papers in its monthly magazine, until 1993 when it created a separate journal for the publication of technical papers.
Today, this internationally accredited (Web of Science) journal publishes peer-reviewed papers on cutting-edge research relevant to all aspects of Civil Engineering. Published biannually, and controlled by SAICE’s Journal Editorial Panel, the growing success of the journal can be seen from the steadily increasing number of submissions and from the 70 000 times that technical papers have been downloaded to date from the SciELO website.
The SAICE Journal is open to the public, and all technical papers published therein can be downloaded through the Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO SA).
SciELO SA is South Africa’s premier open-access (free to access and free to publish) searchable full-text journal database in service of the South African research community. The database covers a selected collection of peer-reviewed South African scholarly journals (currently 41) and forms an integral part of the SciELO Brazil project. SciELO SA is managed by the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), funded by the South African Department of Science and Technology, and endorsed by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET).
