The journal mainly reports and communicates practice and theoretic researches of domestic and foreign bridge engineers in aspect of their scientific researches, design, construction and construction supervision with focus on the new techniques, new workmanships, new materials and the latest research findings. The major columns the journal covers are: (1) the latest bridge science and techniques; (2) the design and construction techniques of various notable major bridges and the bridges that have distinctive structural features; (3) the development and application of new bridge engineering materials; (4) the development and application of new bridge construction machinery and equipment; (5) the seismic resistance, vibration damping and corrosion protection techniques of bridges; (6) the inspection, testing, evaluation, maintenance, remedial and strengthening of existing bridges as well as (7) the construction accidents and the corresponding analysis of bridges.The journal of Bridge Construction (international standard serial number: ISSN 1003-4722) is a bimonthly and irregularly the journal may publish two issues of supplements annually. The journal has totally 84 pages (A4) each issue, within which about 20 papers will be published.
