History and important milestones

In 2005 two separated journals (the Structural Journal - ISSN 1809-1121, and the Materials Journal -ISSN 1809-5046) were created, and later merged into the current one-journal version in 2008.

From July, 2020 the journal changes the publication model from regular issues to the continuous publication model. The journal moves towards incorporating open science practices indicating authors contributions, declaring editors names, incorporating information on each author ORCID, financial support, and data availability, in every published paper.

Since 2020, aiming a greater international insertion, the journal Editorial Board choose to publish papers only in English. There is an expressive number of authors from all the Americas and Iberia, and an increasing number of authors coming from other parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania. The journal is honored to have published authors from all continents, as much as is honored to also have editors from all continents.

Over years the IBRACON Journal has built a reputation in Latin America as one of the most important scientific publications in Civil Engineering. This recognition is also observed worldwide in recent years.
