Author Guidelines

Prior to submitting your paper, please follow the instructions given below.

Articles intended for Academic Journal of Civil Engineering should be submitted online using our Web-based submission tool. To submit your paper online, please go to https://journal.augc.asso.fr/index.php/ajce and upload your article and associated files. All correspondence between editor and author is performed by e-mail.


RUGC: Les articles pour les RUGC suivent une procédure particulière. Les articles de 4 pages écrits en français ou en anglais doivent suivre le modèle dédié (ou ici en version latex). Contrairement aux articles classiques d’AJCE, l’expertise ne se fera pas en double aveugle.

Prix René HOUPERT: Le Prix René HOUPERT récompense les travaux de recherche présentés par des doctorants en fin de thèse ou venant de soutenir leur thèse. Pour participer à ce consours qui entre dans le cadre des RUGC 2022, vous devez soumettre un article de 8 pages en utilisant le modèle dédié (aussi disponible en version latex). Vous trouverez les modalité d'évaluation dans ce document.

Vous trouverez tous les détails sur les RUGC2022 (dates de soumission, comité scientifique...) sur le site des rencontres. Les articles pour les RUGC (prix RH ou non) se font via AJCE, dans la rubrique Submisions.


AJCE Papers

Language: English should be preferred even if articles in French will be accepted

Corresponding author: Clearly indicate who is responsible for correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, including post-publication.

Requirements: Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language.

Review: contributions are analyzed by two or more reviewers to ensure both accuracy and relevance, and revisions to the paper may thus be required. On acceptance, contributions are subject to editorial amendment. When a manuscript is returned for revision prior to final acceptance, the revised version must be submitted as soon as possible after the author's receipt of the reviewers' reports. Revised manuscripts returned after four months will be considered as new submissions subject to full re-review. The editor reserves the right to return, prior to refereeing, any manuscripts which do not conform to the instructions for manuscript preparation, as well as papers which do not fit the scope of the journal.

Double-blind review: This journal uses double-blind review, which means that both reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.  Authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity. The authors have to submit separately the Title Page containing the Authors details and Anonymized Manuscript with no author details as 2 separate files (templates dedicated to these two files are provided). In the manuscript,  remove any identifying information, including author names, from file names and ensure document properties are also anonymized, use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously undertaken, make sure figures do not contain any affiliation related identifier, remove references to funding sources and do not include acknowledgments.

Title page and Manuscript: Files must be in MS Word or in Latex using the appropriate templates: Word (Title Page and Manuscript) & Latex (Template). Figures and tables should be embedded and not supplied separately. Please do not alter the formatting and style layouts which have been set up in the template document. All instructions for the structure and format of the manuscript are given in the template.

Graphical abstract:  Authors must provide a graphical abstract. A Graphical Abstract is a single, concise and visual summary of the main findings of the article. This could be a figure from the article or a figure that is specially designed for the purpose.
