About the Journal

The CONSTRUCTION is an international, peer-reviewed platinum open-access journal published by the Faculty of Civil Engineering Technology at the Universiti Malaysia Pahang, Kuantan, Malaysia. The journal's scope is set to be multi-disciplinary to bring together sustainable construction, advanced materials, engineering and technology aspects.

CONSTRUCTION publishes original full-length research articles on applied and fundamental aspects of advanced and bio-materials in civil engineering construction. Review articles that address significant challenges in the field and critical reviews that clearly address and minimise knowledge gaps, provide good information, or provide a valuable guide to the readers are encouraged to submit.

The focus is on original research utilising the advanced materials, engineering structures, frontier in hydraulics and hydrology, geotechnical engineering, project management, highway and transportation engineering, and applications of geoinformatics in civil construction.

In addition to serving as a valuable resource of multi-disciplinary aspect and materials for researchers, the journal also addresses developing and emerging issues such as sustainable construction and advances in frontier materials. It also facilitates researchers with the application of alternative materials solutions to current practices.
