Journal of Civil and Environmental Engineering (JSIL) is a journal is online and can be accessed openly in, This journal only publishes articles in the form of research (research paper) and the literature review (review papers). Articles in the form of comments (comments of paper) on the articles published in this journal or other journals can be considered for acceptance.
a. Articles in the form of research are research that is original and not published in other journals. The results of research in the form of theoretical exposition with the development of data and in-depth evaluation. JSIL not accept articles in the form of case studies and report the results of community service by the reviews too common. The total length of the manuscript, including references, should not exceed 10000 words.
b. Articles in the form of literature are the result of a critical review of the phenomenon and the planning process in the field of Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering.
