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.
Focus and Scope
In the face of escalating needs for eco-friendly solutions and sustainability, Engineering Future Sustainability stands as a beacon for institutions and scholars worldwide. We encourage the creation of sustainable engineering solutions that coexist harmoniously with the environment. Our primary aim is to provide a swift and efficient platform for the dissemination of cutting-edge advancements in the fields of Engineering and the Built Environment.
We welcome and value contributions in the form of original research papers and insightful review articles. As an international, multidisciplinary, scholarly, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, we publish comprehensive peer-reviewed articles as well as concise pieces, spanning a wide range of subjects. Our core focus lies in the exploration and practical application of sustainability concepts in engineering planning, design, and practice. We are dedicated to unraveling and addressing the manifold challenges and issues related to sustainable development.
In accordance with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we accept articles pertaining to a myriad of sustainability facets including water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, resilient infrastructure, sustainable industrialization, sustainable cities and communities, sustainable consumption and production patterns, climate change mitigation, and the conservation and sustainability of oceans, seas, and marine resources.
Our coverage spans a wide array of topics, such as:
Ozone Layer Protection

And many more... Join us in our mission to engineer a future that aligns with the principles of sustainability. By contributing your research and ideas to our journal, you become part of a global movement striving to make a significant difference. Together, we can help shape a sustainable future.
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:
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.
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.
Since 2022, Engineering Future Sustainability journal has been an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of Open Access :
By "open access" to this literature, we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.
