Journals health check

The working party reviewed the performance of each ICE journal:

Transport, Geotechnical Engineering and Structures and Building were found to be 'broadly satisfactory', but Municipal Engineer did not have a consistent flow of papers and was published late on some occasions.

The review stated that: 'The present aims and scope of this journal do not reflect the changed nature and responsibilities for public sector engineering.'

More coverage of facilities management and public private partnerships was needed as well as more papers from the Waste Management Board and the Management Board. Municipal Engineer will be reviewed again next year.

A Water Maritime and Energy readership survey revealed strongest interest in water topics and least interest in energy. The journal needed to reflect these different levels of interest in future and would be reviewed in a year.
