Submission to JACT

Submission fee
- There are no charges for submission and publication of the manuscripts.

Type of paper
ACT publishes chiefly scientific papers, technical reports, review papers, discussions, and JCI Committee reports. Occasionally, invited articles, case studies, and selected articles from JCI conferences may be considered for publication.

  • Scientific papers should report original scientific research work on concrete technology, covering pertinent topics on materials, structures, and environments. It includes high-quality scientific articles that contribute to the progress of concrete technology. In scientific papers, adequate consideration and discussion from the point of scientific view are required to show the validity of the articles.

  • Technical reports should convey (deliver) the latest advances in modern design and construction of concrete structures, development of new materials and novel testing methods, as well as innovative techniques on concrete technology. Technical reports are required to show their novelty or significance in the technical or research field based on appropriate consideration.

  • Review papers should report the current state and unresolved issues for a particular scientific research field on concrete technology based on in-depth surveys and analysis of the previous research work. It is expected that the analysis with deep insight indicates the directions of future research.

  • Discussions should include significant comments or queries concerning the content of a scientific paper or technical report in JACT issues published within the last year. Discussions should be concisely documented and limited to 2000 words.
