Engineering Future Sustainability is a pioneering journal at the intersection of engineering and sustainable development. Recognizing the critical role that natural resources play in human commerce, daily life, and existence, we are dedicated to the cause of ensuring their longevity through sustainable engineering practices. We understand that any neglect of sustainability could risk the depletion of these resources, posing grave consequences for our world.

Our journal emphasizes the design and execution of projects that protect and conserve natural resources. We advocate for sustainable engineering practices that are not only economical but also supportive of both natural and human ecosystems. We believe that engineers have the potential to act as key players in such sustainable initiatives.

At Engineering Future Sustainability, we consider sustainable engineering to be the process of developing or managing systems that ensure the sustainable use of energy and resources. This implies utilization at a rate that neither compromises the environment nor the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Our scope extends to all aspects of design, including structural design and temporary works, which can greatly influence the overall sustainability of a structure. We view the sustainability of a structure through multiple lenses – the embodied energy of structural materials, durability, design flexibility, optimality, and deconstruction, among others.

We take pride in providing a platform for the exchange of the latest ideas from professionals and scholars in the field. Our journal is a dynamic space that progressively illustrates the methodologies for designing a sustainable future. We champion engineering projects and products that meet current demands without endangering the future's ability to fulfill its needs.

Until now, the engineering field's contributions to sustainability have primarily focused on minimizing the negative impacts of development on the environment and improving resource use efficiency. Engineering Future Sustainability is dedicated to shifting this perspective, focusing on how to engineer sustainability for the future.

We believe that solutions, projects, and products developed to address current problems must be designed with a clear vision of their environmental impact and efficient resource use, always considering the wellbeing of future generations. To achieve this, we encourage collaboration between engineering scholars and professionals, and our journal serves as a shared platform to unite these efforts.

If you share our commitment to engineering a sustainable future, we invite you to contribute your expertise and innovative ideas to our journal. Together, we can make a significant impact and ensure the health of our environment and its inhabitants for generations to come.

Submission Checklist

The Engineering Future Sustainability journal accepts research articles, systematic literature reviews, surveys, theory and applied research related manuscripts for peer review.

The Author Submission system related guidelines are as follows:

  1. Manuscript files must be ".doc(x)" compatible with Microsoft Word. LaTeX can be used to submit manuscripts with a lot of math.
  2. The format for the manuscript should be double columns, single spacing. Both a Microsoft Word or LaTex file and a PDF file must be submitted.
  3. All submissions must be accompanied by a PDF of the complete, submitted version, which includes all figures and tables.
  4. Section titles should be formatted in Headings 3 when using Microsoft Word. 
  5. Equations should be editable by the editor and not appear in picture format. If you are using Microsoft Word, please use either the Microsoft Equation Editor or the MathType add-on.
  6. All figures should appear in a standard image format (such as .jpg, .png, .tif, etc.) rather than embedded as Microsoft Word graphs and charts. Figures should also include an Alt Text description where possible for accessibility.
  7. Before submission, author lists should be carefully evaluated. An ORCID ID must be linked to the account of the corresponding author. Both the source file (a Word or LaTex document) and the manuscript PDF document should contain a complete author list.
  8. Before submitting, the article should be carefully checked for good grammar.
  9. All research papers need to be properly referenced. Avoid plagiarism at all costs.
  10. The piece of writing must be original and contribute to the body of knowledge already known about the topic matter.
  11. Experiments, statistics, and other analyses must be carried out to a high level of technical proficiency and sufficiently reported. The data must be used to support the conclusions and be presented clearly.
  12. Along with APA, MLA, and Chicago, Harvard style is one of the most widely used formatting types for academic writings. Although we prefer the Harvard referencing style, other recognized styles are also appropriate.

Contributing authors should download the following Word document template for their submissions to Engineering Future Sustainability journal.

Preparing Your Article

The following requirements must be met for an article to be accepted for publication in Engineering Future Sustainability journal.

The manuscript must be original and contribute to the body of knowledge already known about the topic matter. Even if no novel information or ideas are given, original reviews and surveys are accepted.

The article must be presented clearly and in proper grammar and standard English. It must contain pertinent references to previously published publications in the related field.

Peer Review

The Engineering Future Sustainability journal operates a single-blind peer review policy. In this model, the identities of both the reviewers and the authors are concealed from each other in an effort to guard against unintended bias. The handling editor is the only person who knows the identities of all involved. Manuscript files are also routinely stripped of any identifying metadata before they are sent to reviewers. Reviewer feedback is also stripped of identifying details and metadata before being communicated to the author.

All articles go through a comprehensive and robust peer review procedure to guarantee they uphold the publications' well-respected, high standards for originality and technical accuracy.
