Open Access Structural engineering Journals

A list of Open Access Structural engineering journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Structural engineering is sub-discipline of civil engineering dealing with the creation of man made structures

Open Access journals publish research articles that are free to to view and download. The main difference between articles in open access journals and those in closed journals is the business model. Both types of articles have to undergo the same peer review process.

This list of Structural engineering OA journals will hopefully make it easier for you to have a better idea regarding where your want to publish your Structural engineering manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor Structural engineering journals as well as new journals. This should give you a better idea on where you should publish. We've made this extensive list of open access Structural engineering journals so you can get a better overview of all the journals where you can publish open access.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Structural engineering venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access refers to free access to information and unrestricted use of electronic resources for everyone. Any kind of digital content can be open access, from texts and data to software, audio, and video.
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the strength of association between this journal being listed and the concept, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Research In Mechanical Engineering has a relevance of “0” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has no relevance to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often articles from this journal have been referenced in other works. OpenAlex is where we get this data from. Although the accuracy is debatable, it can nevertheless help you get a sense of how prestigious a journal is in general.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists under different topics, look on
How can I publish my paper on
Our aim at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not publish any papers. What we do is that once a paper has been published, we index it in so that more people can find and access a journal article.
What is an APC?
In some cases, articles published in journals are made open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made usually made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services provided.
What are the different Open Access types?
Different open access types are commonly described using a colour system. The most commonly recognised names are “green”, “gold”, and “hybrid” open access; however, “bronze”, “black”, and “diamond” also exist.
