About Journal


The aim of the Journal is a continuous and timely dissemination of research developments and applications. The Journal is an inter disciplinary forum for Wind and Engineering and publishes referred papers on the latest advances on the subject and their application to industrial wind engineering, wind induced disasters, environmental issues and wind energy. Papers on relevant and innovative practice and engineering application as well as those of an interdisciplinary nature are strongly encouraged. Discussions on any paper previously published in the Journal are also considered for publication. Articles submitted to the Journal should be original and should not be
under consideration for publication elsewhere at the same time.

Besides regular issues containing contributed research papers, it will be the endeavour of the editors to bring out specialty issues covering a specific area of interest to include invited state-of-the-art papers.

On the other hand two-page notes describing preliminary ideas on a proposed area of future research will also be considered for publication.

Members may also send news items, memoirs, book reviews for publication.

The Society is not responsible for statements and opinions expressed by the authors in the Journal.
