  1. Each paper must be typed on snow white paper sheets of A4 (210x297mm) size only on one side in boxes. The abstract must be typed in 16 cm width box. The text of paper in the first page must be written in two columns 8.25 cm in width. All next pages must also have two columns 8.25 cm in width.

Photographs must be glossy black and white prints and stuck at the appropriate position. This also applies to other items such as tables. The best – drawings, photographs and tables should be typed by word processor. All symbols including equations should be typed.
  6. However, sometimes embedding figure files in Microsoft Word is not acceptable for final output, because of the loss of resolution. Acceptable formats for figures are JPEG, TIFF or EPS files saved from original application at 300-600 dpi.
  7. The Figures, line drawings, photographs, tables may be positioned either within the one column, or large centered exactly across the full width of the page. The equations should be numbered at the right side of the column. The references should be given at the end of the paper. The Figures, Tables and Equations should be separated from the text by minimum one single free line

The Editor-in-Chief will correspond with the author in the light of these reviews. Submission implies that the author will be willing to make any necessary revisions. Retain all original figures until conclusion of the review process.
  10. Enquires regarding International Journal for Computational Civil and Structural Engineering and manuscripts should be addressed to the Editor-in-Chief (Professor Vladimir N. Sidorov, Research & Educational Center of Computational Simulation, Moscow State University of Civil Engineering; 26, Yaroslavskoe Shosse, 129337 Moscow, Russia; e-mail: and Technical Editor (Research & Educational Center of Computational Simulation, Moscow State University of Civil Engineering; 26, Yaroslavskoe Shosse, 129337 Moscow, Russia; e-mail:
