• Review Process

Authors should submit a manuscript with a submission form which you can download from the IJHRB website Upon receiving the manuscript, the Co-chief Editor assigns and appropriate member of the Editorial Board to review the manuscript. When the manuscript is accepted for the refereeing process, the Co-chief Editor identifies three competent reviewers who are acknowledged experts in the given subject for extensive peer review. The reviewer's names will remain anonymous to the authors of the manuscript. The Co-chief Editor informs authors about the feedback received from the peer reviewers. Only those receiving favorable recommendations from the peer reviewers will be accepted for publication.

Manuscript may require revisions based on the feedback of the peer reviewers. The Co-chief Editor reserves the right to adjust the author's style according to certain standards of uniformity of the journal.

• Style Guide

Please consider the following style guide requirements when preparing a paper:

Manuscripts must be written in English, and typed double-spaced with 2.5 centimeter (1 inch) wide margins on each side of A4 (210 mm * 297 mm), with a font size of 10 pt in no more than 20 manuscript pages, including tables and illustrations. The overall length of the papers is recommended to be a minimum of 8 pages and a maximum of 12 pages. Each page of the paper must be numbered. All measurements and data should be expressed in SI-units or in an internationally accepted unit if SI-units are not applicable.

All articles should be divided into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should also be numbered 1. (e.g., 1.1., 1.2., ...), 2. (e.g., 2.1., 2.2., ...) etc. However, the abstract should not be included in section numbering. Any subsection may be given a brief heading and each heading should appear on its own separate line.

• Order :

Manuscripts are to be arranged in the following order:

  1. Title, author's name, affiliation, full postal addresses, telephone, fax, and e-mail address(*);
  2. An abstract of about 100-150 words in a single paragraph, purpose, scope, and conclusions of the paper;
  3. About five key words for indexing purposes;
  4. Text with tables and figures, divided under suitable headings and subheadings;
  5. Acknowledgment (if any);
  6. Appendix;
  7. References.

*The corresponding author should be identified by e-mail address. Full postal addresses must be given for all co-authors.

• References :

References should be cited by last name(s) of the author(s) and the year of publication (e.g., Bendat and Piersol, 1959). They should be listed at the last part of the manuscript, arranged in alphabetical order by the last name of the first author. References should be listed by following the format of the examples below;

Journal :
Jeary, A. P. (1986). "Damping in buildings - a mechanism and a predictor." Journal of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics, 14, pp. 733~750.

Book :
Bendat, J. and Piersol, A. (1986) Random data analysis and measurement procedures. John Wiley & Son, New York, USA.

Tamura, Y. (2003) "Design issues for tall buildings from accelerations to damping -Tribute to Hatsuo Ishizaki and Vinod Modi-." Proc. the 11th International Conference on Wind Engineering, INV.W2, Lubbock, Texas, USA, June, pp. 81~114.

• Tables :

Tables should be numbered consecutively, and each must be given a short caption. They should be referred to in the text as Table 1, etc. All figures, including photographs, charts, and diagrams should be provided in camera-ready form, and must be suitable for reproduction without modification. They should be numbered and referred to in the text as Figure 1, etc. The smallest allowable size for the figures is 6 pt after reduction.

Tables should be typed above them and figures should be typed below them, using superscript lowercase letters. Equations should be numbered consecutively in parentheses on the right-hand side of the page. They should be referred to in the text as Eq. (1), etc. Special symbols should be identified at the margins, and the meanings of all the symbols should be explained in the section of the text where they first appear.

• Procedure

Manuscripts that need revision prior to final acceptance shall be returned together with the reviewers' reports. The revised version must be submitted as soon as possible; revised manuscripts returned after four months will be considered as new submissions subject to full reassessment. After the final acceptance of the manuscript, an MS-Word file should be submitted. A layout proof will be sent to the first named author and should be returned within one week of receipt. Corrections should be restricted to typesetting errors in this stage. Feedback queries should be answered in full. Please note that authors are urged to check their proofs carefully before returning the manuscript since the inclusion of late corrections cannot be guaranteed. Proofs should be returned via E-mail to Off-prints : Twenty-five (25) off-prints of the paper and one copy of the journal will be supplied free of charge. Off-prints and copies of the issue can be ordered at specially reduced price upon request after the manuscript has been accepted.
