Revista de la Construcción. Journal of Construction

TARGET AUDIENCE

 

The Journal of Construction is aimed at professionals, constructors, academics, researchers, companies, architects, engineers, and anyone who wishes to expand and update their knowledge about construction.  We therefore invite all researchers, academics, and professionals to send their contributions for assessment and possible publication in this journal.

 

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the Journal of Construction are:

1. To disseminate new knowledge in all areas related to construction (Building, Civil Works, Materials, Business, Education, etc.).

2. To provide professionals in the area with material for discussion to refresh and update their knowledge.

3. To disseminate new applied technologies in construction nationally and internationally.

4. To provide national and foreign academics with an internationally endorsed medium in which to share their knowledge and debate the topics raised.
