Mathematical Modelling in Civil Engineering

Technical University of Civil Engineering Bucharest

The entire submission and review process for MMCE is handled electronically. All papers should be therefore submitted electronically. Please note that you must have a valid e-mail address (avoid too personal-type address, e.g. nicknames) to use the online submission system. Authors submit their article by e-mail, simply by completing the submission form. Editors will then invite potential reviewers to evaluate the manuscript.

Types of paper
Original research papers (preferably no less than 12, and no more than 20 pages including tables and illustrations), reviews, short communications.
Any comment on or discussion of a published paper should be emailed directly to the Editor. It must be received by the Editor within three months of the online publication of the paper under discussion.

After acceptance
Corresponding authors will receive an e-mail from the Editor. MMCE staff will do everything possible to get your article published quickly and accurately.
When a manuscript is returned for revision prior to final acceptance, the revised version must be submitted as soon as possible after the author's receipt of the reviewers reports. Revised manuscripts returned after four months will be considered as new submissions subject to full re-review.

To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor.

Article structure

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, a literature survey and a summary of the results.

Material and methods
Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work. In contrast, a Calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.

Results should be clear and concise.

This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.

Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references. Do not include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research.

A clear and concise list of references properly cited in the text in the journal format must be provided. The list includes journal papers, conference papers, books, guidelines, reports or web page links. The List of References must have a sufficient number of up-to-date references including at least 5 established journal papers in the latest 7 years to reflect the current state of developments. Reference list should not include too many out-of-date papers (decades old paper).
There should be not too many Non-English references included which may severely limit the access to the reference for reviewers and many readers.

Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If other units are mentioned, please give their equivalent in SI.

If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified. Figures shall be saved in the manuscript in an image format (at least 300dpi).
