Focus and Scope

RIC is a journal oriented so much to academics as to professionals. The journal publishes originals and unpublished works, as much in Spanish as in English in all the important topics of engineering and construction management such as: construction materials; technologies, methods and construction processes; construction management and its resources; enterprise management in the construction; viable construction and rehabilitation of materials and structures and other topics of interest. The journal includes articles that inform the results of the investigation as well as applications and practise cases. The opinions expressed in the articles are the sole responsability of their authors and not necessarily reflect the Engineering Department and Construction Management nor the Publisher point of view. We invite researchers, academics and interested professionals to contribute with articles to be published in the journal or send discussions on the articles already published.
